A spinal injury can have a devastating effect on a victim, leaving them requiring long-term care and unable to do the things that most people take for granted, such as getting into bed, using the toilet and taking a shower. This suffering can be made worse if the injury was caused or worsened by a medical professional.

At McHale & Co, we believe no-one should have to suffer in silence if their spinal injury was caused by an error or mistake made by a doctor or other member of staff. If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal injury due to medical negligence, please contact us today by calling 0161 928 3848, or by filling in our online form on the right-hand side of this page.

 

Spinal injury clinical negligence

Everyone is entitled to a high level of medical care to help them recover from a condition or illness. Unfortunately, mistakes are made and the consequences can be severe, leaving a patient in long-term pain or with a lifelong disability. The most common cases of clinical negligence include:

  • Delay in diagnosis or treatment of a spinal injury
  • Failure to diagnose, resulting in a condition getting worse
  • Improper treatment, causing or hindering an injury
  • Errors made during surgery, resulting in further suffering

 

Surgery consent

Spinal injuries requiring surgery usually involve complex procedures that carry a certain degree of risk. This is because each case is different, meaning the amount of medication or the type of operation required for treatment can vary patient to patient.

For this reason, it is crucial that your specialist properly explains all your options available, detailing the risks involved, where procedures can go wrong and the consequences that can occur. Once this has been adequately explained, it is crucial your doctor receives your consent to go ahead with the agreed treatment, failing to do so is regarded as a form of clinical negligence.
