When Doctors Fail to Handle a Spinal Cord Injury Correctly

Many spinal cord injuries occur for reasons completely beyond a person's control. They happen in car accidents, truck accidents or during a slip and fall. Sadly, the damage caused by these accidents may be made worse when medical malpractice is involved.

Doctors may fail to properly stabilize and promptly treat spinal cord injury victims. The results are serious. The spinal cord, a bundle of nerves running through the backbone, becomes damaged. The nerves below the injury site can no longer control movement throughout the body, which can result in paraplegia or quadriplegia. Further complications can lead to serious infection and wrongful death.

If you suspect that a surgical error may have caused your spinal cord injury, talk to an experienced attorney today. Call our Ohio law offices toll free at 866-918-5886 or contact us online. Initial consultations are free, confidential and at no obligation.
