Houston, Texas Lawyer | Helping Those Who’ve Sustained Paralysis after Surgery
While most surgeries go off without a hitch, when surgeons are not careful enough while dealing with the central nervous system, things can go severely wrong. Paralysis injuries typically result from negligence before, during or after spine surgery.
These types of surgeries are incredibly complex, so it is all the more important that surgeons take extreme care and caution when working through these surgeries. All team members must clearly communicate in order to properly care for a patient. Failure to do so can result in:
- Failure to recognize and identify developing complications
- Spinal epidural abscesses
- Spinal hematomas
- Spine fractures
- Wrong level spine surgeries
- Surgical misadventures
- Anesthesia injuries
- Surgical placement injuries
If you have been injured by any of these issues, a Harris County, Texas medical malpractice lawyer from our firm is here to help you.
