Spinal Cord Injuries and Surgical Errors

The spinal cord cannot sustain much pressure until the damage to the patient becomes irreversible. For this reason, it is important that doctors take care to avoid injuring the spinal cord and the surrounding arteries, nerves, tissues and bones. When damage does occur, it is important that doctors recognize the damage and take immediate action to prevent unnecessary complications.

Examples of spinal cord injuries occurring during surgery include:

  • Spinal and epidural injections that damage the spine or adjacent arteries and tissues
  • Steroid injections that cause bleeding into the spinal canal
  • Incorrectly positioning the body while administering anesthesia. In certain cases, incorrectly positioning the body can lead to spinal cord injury.

Patients who suffer spinal cord injuries during surgery can suffer paralysis, paraplegia, quadriplegia and a wide range of other conditions. Some victims suffer wrongful death. Our lawyers will work with you to determine the extent of the damage, and aggressively advocate on your behalf to recover full and fair compensation.
