Cauda Equina Compensation Claims

All too often, cauda equina syndrome is not diagnosed and treated quickly enough. The patient is then left with devastating neurological injuries, which he/she must endure for the rest of their lives.

If you have suffered permanent injuries as a result of cauda equina syndrome, please get in touch with us to find out if you can make a claim.

Claiming cauda equina compensation

Cauda equina syndrome can completely turn someone's life upside down. If not treated in time, it can leave a patient incontinent of urine and faeces, meaning they have to use a catheter and/or colostomy bag.

It can also cause numbness in the legs, feet, buttocks and genitals. This can take away all sexual sensation, and will make it difficult for the individual to walk. A wheelchair or crutches may be required. It can also result in a high level of pain, for which the patient will need strong pain-killers.

These things combined can work to totally rob someone of their quality of life. They may not be able to work, leave the house, drive, walk unaided, care for their children, cook, get dressed, or do other basic tasks that are usually considered routine. It can take away the individual's independence, and leave them feeling very depressed and upset. It can also put tremendous strain on relationships, particularly as all intimacy can be lost.

Compensation for damages

Having to live with this condition is bad enough, but it will be especially hard if medical errors are to blame, as the outcome could have been improved with better medical care.

If medical practitioners are to blame for your cauda equina injuries, you could be eligible to pursue a claim for compensation. Although this will not give you your health back, it will offer you some form of justice. It will also help you to get the equipment you need which can include the cost of moving to a new home, or adapting your home, to fit your needs.

A compensation settlement will also recover your financial losses, such as a loss of earnings. This can be very important if you are now unable to work.
