If a medical procedure has resulted in an injury to your brain, spinal cord or the peripheral nerves in your legs, arms or muscles, you could be eligible to make a claim for surgery negligence compensation.
The team of specialist clinical and medical negligence solicitors here at Lanyon Bowdler are highly experienced and are experts in their field. They will be able to help you through every stage of the process - starting with whether you have a claim for compensation.
The medical field of neurology covers a wide range of disorders including:
Most neurologists will specialise in one or more of these types of disorders. Their work involves neurological examinations and observations to assess muscle strength and movement, sensation, balance and reflexes, speech and memory and other cognitive abilities.
There are a variety of diagnostic tests, including:
The accuracy and reporting of these tests is essential in neurology, and an instance of medical negligence at the diagnostic stage can be devastating for the patient.
Neurological injury to the brain or spine are some of the most devastating brain injury claims which the team of specialist lawyers here at Lanyon Bowdler have dealt with. Many of these clinical negligence claims arise from a failure to diagnose crucial conditions, which means neurologists have then either failed to administer the correct treatment or have carried out the wrong kind of treatment, with catastrophic consequences for the patient.
Previous brain trauma compensation cases undertaken by Lanyon Bowdler have included the following oversights from medical professionals:
The operations could have been negligently performed, or the treatment itself could have been wrong. Sometimes, a patient may not have provided 'informed consent' for a surgical procedure or course of treatment, and can subsequently claim that they would not have given their consent if they had been made fully aware of the risks involved.
The role of a clinical negligence solicitor when acting on behalf of an injured person is to establish the extent of the injury and how it was caused. So the lawyer must therefore involve the correct medical and ancillary experts to fully assess the injury at the earliest available opportunity, and will then work with them throughout the case.
