Spine Injury

Scranton, Pennsylvania Spine Injury Attorneys

While violent accidents are often the cause of spine injuries, a certain number are also caused by medical malpractice. Medical care can often make existing spinal injuries even worse. Surgical errors can severely damage spinal nerves, leading to life-long, permanent consequences. If a doctor or other medical professional does not properly treat a spinal injury, the individual can suffer a more serious personal injury, paralysis, and even death.

Spine injuries can be made worse or caused by medical negligence. Some of the spinal injuries you can suffer include:

  • A failure to diagnose scoliosis
  • Spinal fusion errors
  • Removal of incorrect vertebrae discs
  • Monarch instrumentation
  • Micro dysectomy injury
  • Laminectomy errors
  • Screws placed in the wrong areas
  • Birth injuries
  • Spinal surgery errors
  • Failure to identify a spinal cord infection
  • Failure to diagnose kyphosis
  • Failure to detect epidural abscesses
  • Injecting a myelogram in the wrong location
  • Malfunctioning hospital equipment
  • Failing to diagnose a tumor
  • Improper anesthesia administration

Spine injuries can lead to long-term motor skill impairment, paralysis, and even death. Full recovery is rarely likely to happen. Instead, expensive and long-term therapy and medical rehabilitation are usually needed. The lives of the affected individual and his or her family are forever changed. Newly paralyzed individuals do need financial compensation. While financial recovery may not treat the condition, it does provide the financial support needed for lifetime care.

Caputo & Mariotti’s lawyers are single-mindedly dedicated to protecting the rights of spine injury victims. We believe that if we focus on providing the best representation and client care possible, everything will turn out well in the end.
