What is a Spinal Injury?

A spinal cord injury can be caused by a trauma, such as an accident or medical mistake, or as a result of infection or disease. The damage to the spinal cord disrupts communication between the brain and the body.  When this happens it can result in a total or partial loss of movement and sensation below the point where the spinal cord has been damaged. As well as the loss of movement and sensation a spinal cord injury can cause a loss of bladder and bowel control, changes in sexual function, extreme pain, and problems with regulating your breathing or blood pressure. Find out more about the effects of a spinal cord injury here.

£5.3m for 15 year old left paralysed following negligent scoliosis surgery

Our client, at age 15, sustained a spinal cord injury leaving her tetraplegic at C6/C7. This occurred following scoliosis surgery to correct the curvature of her spine. Unfortunately medics failed to give our client appropriate care during the surgery, which resulted in her becoming tetraplegic (paralysed from her neck down) over a period of 36 hours.
