Dedicated Paralysis Lawyer Serving Los Angeles
In a large number of medical malpractice cases involving an individual who has been paralyzed, the injuries leading to paralysis are usually suffered due to a surgical error of some sort. Surgeons undergo years of training and study before they are allowed to operate on a patient. These medical professionals usually have to follow a strict set of guidelines while performing surgery. Despite the high level of preparation and the many safeguards put in place to protect the patient, sometimes accidents do happen. When these accidents are the result of
medical negligence or a blatant error, it is essential to seek legal representation.
While full paralysis is not entirely uncommon, most medical malpractice cases involve a patient who is now suffering from partial paralysis of some kind. Injuries sustained during the birth process can leave a child permanently disabled. Any number of birth injuries can result from a doctor who exerts too much force or who resorts to dangerous practices during the delivery of a child. During cosmetic surgery, an unscrupulous surgeon could accidentally sever a nerve, partially paralyzing a patient's face.
Cosmetic surgery errors resulting in paralysis are particularly devastating due to the fact that in many cases, the surgery is being done to enhance an individual's appearance. No matter what the circumstances surrounding your injury may have been, if you are now partially or fully paralyzed due to a medical professional's careless actions or negligence, it is very important that you receive compensation for your injuries.
