Lafayette Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers Serving Clients Acadiana
We tend to associate spinal cord injuries with catastrophic accidents, such as an 18-wheeler crash. However, an injured spine can also occur because of medical malpractice. Such injuries are often catastrophic; victims are frequently paralyzed to some degree, with breathing and motor skills impairments. A full recovery from a spinal cord injury is unlikely. Victims often need to undergo extensive rehabilitation and therapy to learn how to cope with their permanent disabilities.
When this catastrophic injury is due to medical mistakes caused by negligence or misconduct, it is somehow worse. Patients undergoing medical procedures involving the spinal cord have the right to expect a certain standard of care from their physicians.
