Medical Malpractice Lawsuits For Paralysis Injuries
Did You Suffer Nerve Damage In Medical Care?
A slip of the scalpel or other negligence can cause profound and irreversible damage to nerve tissues. Medical blunders do not fall under the normal and acceptable risks of a surgical procedure.
If a family member is paralyzed or suffered permanent nerve damage because of medical negligence, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Ginsberg & O'Connor, P.C., has a long record of holding surgeons and hospitals accountable for such harm. Call our Mount Laurel law office for a free consultation.
Paralysis Or Nerve Damage May Constitute Medical Malpractice
An adverse outcome is not necessarily grounds for malpractice. The question is what caused the damage and whether it could and should have been prevented. Our attorneys have decades of experience investigating surgeries gone wrong and related forms of malpractice.
Nerve damage and paralysis may occur from:
- Complications of spinal surgery
- Botched surgeries to repair nerves or relieve pain
- Nicked or severed nerves during surgical procedures
- Residual paralysis from anesthesia
- Disfigurement or damage to facial nerves in plastic surgery
Some nerve damage is short term; patients recover all or most function over time or once the inflammation subsides. But in many cases, feeling and function do not return and cannot be medically restored. We pursue appropriate damages for the impact of paralysis or lasting nerve damage: ongoing medical care, special medical equipment, nursing care, lost earnings, partial or total disability, disfigurement, and pain and suffering.
