A delay in diagnosing spinal cord compression can result in devastating injuries to someone such as paralysis, paraplegia, quadriplegia, or permanent loss of bowel or bladder function. A doctor's negligence may cause a delay in timely diagnosing it or properly treating a spinal cord compression injury. For example, spinal cord compression may be caused by a spinal epidural abscess, a tumor, a hematoma, or a blood clot or a ruptured or herniated disc. Time is of the essence in making the correct diagnosis because the longer the spinal cord is under pressure, the greater the chance of permanent injury. So, it's critical that surgery be performed as soon as possible to relieve the pressure on the spinal cord and decrease the chance of permanent cord injury. Immediate imaging of the spine, such as an MRI should be performed if spinal cord compression is suspected or a likely explanation for the patient's problems. The best test is an MRI because it provides the most detailed information about abnormalities in the bony and soft tissue structures of the spine. Cauda equina syndrome is another type of spinal nerve injury. At the bottom of the spinal cord, the cord branches into a bundle of nerve endings. Timely diagnosis and timely surgery to relieve pressure on the cauda equina is very important to avoid permanent nerve injury. If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord compression injury, please contact Matzus Law immediately. We're happy to investigate a potential claim on your behalf to determine if there was a negligent delay in diagnosing or treating your injury. 412-206-5300.
