Claiming For Cauda Equina Syndrome

Despite it being a growing area for medical negligence claims, it is still not very well known or understood by the medical profession. Therefore, when the cauda equina nerves at the bottom of your spine are compressed due to an accident or a slipped disc, often a medical team will not realise that this has taken place. However, it is failing to diagnose the compression and to release it urgently which causes long term damage to the group of Cauda Equina nerves.

Effects Of Cauda Equina Syndrome

Failure to diagnose and then treat the compression of these group of nerves can lead to loss of bladder or bowel control, sexual dysfunction, lower back pain and even lower limb paralysis. It can be a very serious injury.

Compensation Payments For Cauda Equina Syndrome

Due to the severe permanent effects of this injury, a successful Cauda Equina compensation claim will often attract a financial settlement in excess of £100,000, and often significantly more.

The average settlement between 2003 and 2007 was around £117,000, although one case attracted an award in excess of £500,000.

The awards are so high because the injury and ongoing pain can be severe, but also the amount of care and assistance required by the sufferer, along with the lost earnings if they cannot return to work, soon lead the claim to increase in value.
