Cauda Equina Syndrome is a medical emergency. If your treatment was delayed or incorrect our solicitors could help you claim compensation.

Cauda Equina Syndrome is a neurological condition that requires urgent surgery. If a lack of prompt action or incorrect treatment has caused you a permanent injury you may consider your legal position.

The cauda equina nerves are located in the lower back – if they become damaged it can develop into cauda equina syndrome. Someone with CES may have some or all of the ‘red flag’ symptoms including:

  • Severe back pain
  • Loss of sensation in the bottom
  • Lack of sensation down one or both legs
  • Problems with the bowel, bladder and sexual dysfunction

If a medical professional fails to spot the ‘red flag symptoms’ or carries out incorrect treatment its likely to leave the patient requiring further surgery, extensive rehabilitation, and in the worst cases life-changing injuries.

  • Misdiagnosis or failing to diagnose
  • Delay in treatment or failing to treat
  • Incorrect treatment
  • Unaccpetable standards of treatment

We understand how debilitating cauda equina syndrome can be especially if your injuries occured because a medical professional let you down.
