How Is Paralysis Caused by Medical Malpractice?
There are a number of ways in which preventable medical mistakes can cause a patient to sustain a brain injury or spinal cord injury that results in paraplegia or quadriplegia.
Examples of how medical negligence or malpractice can lead to paralysis include:
- Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of a disease that results in spinal cord damage
- Surgical errors during brain or spinal cord procedures
- Interruption of blood flow to the brain or spinal cord during a medical procedure
- Lack of oxygen to the brain
- Bleeding brain injuries
- Improper use of spinal anesthesia
While not all paralysis injuries sustained in a hospital are the result of medical malpractice, in some cases, we find that a paralysis injury could have been prevented if the doctors or hospital staff had followed standard procedures designed to keep patients safe.
