Spinal Injury

In our human body, the spine is the vital component of the central nervous system and any injury or disruption to this system can lead to traumatising life changing penalties, such as paralysis. Spinal injuries are among the most severe injury that a patient can suffer, and the injuries to it are often devastating. It can lead to a victim being perpetually restricted to a wheelchair, while his/her everyday life can be profoundly altered such as loss of earnings.

The most prevalent spinal surgical treatment includes discectomy and laminectomy and surgical error/injury can occur because of medical negligence in a number of ways. In some cases, the surgeons operate on the incorrect level of vertebrae (also known as the backbone or spine) and even remove the incorrect disc. This can cause serious nerve injuries and result in paraplegia (paralysis of the legs and lower body, typically caused by spinal injury), which may give rise to a potential spinal injury compensation claims.
