Most Common Surgeries that Cause Paralysis

Every operation poses a risk, but these surgeries may make you particularly susceptible to a medical mistake that causes paralysis:

  • spinal cord surgery (including the disc and bones);
  • neck surgery;
  • brain surgery;
  • nerve damage repairs; and
  • c-section.

Determining Liability in a Medical Malpractice Claim for Paralysis

Many parties can be held liable in a medical malpractice claim. For instance, doctors and surgeons can be held accountable if they misdiagnosed you and caused you to undergo an unnecessary surgery, or if they made a mistake during your surgery that affected the spine or nervous system. The manufacturer of a medical device could be held responsible if it malfunctioned in some way during your surgery.
