Cauda Equina Syndrome Lawyers

The cauda equina is a bundle of nerves located at the base of the spinal cord. When these nerves become compressed or damaged, it can result in a condition known as cauda equina syndrome (CES).

CES is a serious medical condition that causes lower back pain, numbness, weakness, and loss of bowel or bladder control. If left untreated, CES can lead to permanent paralysis, incontinence, and sexual dysfunction.

In some cases, CES can result from medical negligence. For example, a healthcare provider may overlook symptoms of CES, or fail to diagnose or treat a spinal condition that is causing CES. In some cases, it is possible that a surgeon may perform a procedure that damages the cauda equina nerves. In such cases, a patient may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

To make a medical negligence claim for CES, you will need to prove that the healthcare provider responsible for your care failed to provide an acceptable level of care, and that this directly caused your condition or made it worse. This can be a complex process, and it’s important to seek legal advice from a specialist medical negligence solicitor.

At Ellisons Solicitors, we have years of experience in handling medical negligence claims, including those related to CES. Our specialist solicitors can guide you through the process, and help you to secure the compensation you deserve.
