How Medical Malpractice Causes Paralysis

While doctors, surgeons, and other medical professionals are expected to “do no harm,” mistakes do happen. Carelessness, lack of knowledge, miscommunication, and outright malpractice can all lead to complications that may result in paralysis. This is particularly true when doctors perform spine surgery.

Spine surgery is a highly complex and technical procedure, one that requires extensive skill, training, and experience. All too often, unqualified surgeons attempt risky procedures—with disastrous consequences. Nerve damage that occurs during spine surgery can lead to both partial and total paralysis, along with other injuries such as new or worsening pain, neurological problems, blindness, loss of speech, stroke, organ damage, and even death.

Some ways in which medical malpractice can result in paralysis include:

  • Failure to act quickly to stop or limit nerve damage
  • Miscommunication between doctors/surgeons and other medical professionals
  • Improper restraint of hospital patients
  • Surgical mistakes, including wrong-site surgery and nerve damage
  • Epidural anesthesia errors
  • Birth injuries leading to severe cerebral palsy and quadriplegia
