Arizona Medical Malpractice Attorneys for the Victims of Spinal Cord Injury
When a spinal cord injury occurs, the clock is ticking, so early diagnosis and medical treatment are key to minimizing the damage. Damage to the spinal cord can quickly progress and become permanent — turning a serious personal injury into a catastrophic one. Therefore, health care professionals must act quickly and appropriately.
Medical Negligence in Treating Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury
We have represented people who have experienced spinal cord injuries in car accidents, truck accidents, work accidents, and falls. Many of these people were treated by emergency medicine physicians or trauma surgeons who failed to take appropriate action in treating a spinal cord injury, which allowed it to progress or become permanent.
Medical Negligence in Non-Traumatic Spine Surgery
Negligent medical care can also cause spinal cord injury, although such injuries are less common than traumatic cord injuries. For example, nurses in the post-operative period following neurosurgery can fail to check neurological function of their patients, or fail to appreciate the significance of an abnormal result. Doctors may directly damage the spinal cord or may cause clots which compress the spinal cord to the point of paralysis.
