Neurosurgical Malpractice Lawyers in Detroit & Southfield Michigan

When Does Neurosurgical Malpractice Occur?

Our brains and spinal cords control almost all of the things we do, and if they’re injured, the medical and surgical issues involved are serious.

Neurosurgeons – specialists in operating on the brain, spine, and spinal cord – are expected to be extremely well trained and careful in their approach to treatment.  When they’re not, necessary patient care falls short and mistakes are made.

These mistakes can include but are not limited to the following:

  • Failure to diagnose signs and symptoms of an impending stroke or to administer timely treatment.
  • Injury to the spinal cord during back surgery
  • Inappropriate treatment of scoliosis
  • Failure to diagnose cauda equina syndrome
  • Failure to properly perform a laminectomy
  • Failure to timely treat hydrocephalus
  • Failure to properly perform a spinal fusion
  • Failure to timely or properly fix a brain aneurysm or AV malformation

Consequences of Neurosurgical Malpractice

The consequences of these errors can be devastating – severe pain, paralysis, and death are all potential results of neurosurgical negligence, in addition to financial hardship and emotional burden on patients and their families.  Finding the right lawyer, one with extensive and real experience in dealing with these issues, is the key to getting these families the help that they need and deserve.
