Paralysis from a Medical or Surgical Procedure:

Over the past hundred years modern medicine has come a long way. Ailments and injuries that were previously untreatable are now routine procedures. Many of these surgeries have short recovery times and people are spending less and less time in hospitals after operations. While the knowledge and skill of medical doctors has increased dramatically, so has the need for malpractice insurance. Why is this? The answer is simple: today, more than ever before, doctors make mistakes that can lead to horrific consequences. Some surgeries can even lead to paralysis.

Paralysis is an extremely dramatic and life-changing event. Imagine that you head into surgery for a procedure that has a high rate of success and you come out unable to move. It sound ridiculous, but it happens. In fact, it is not that uncommon for serious mistakes to be made during surgery.

If you have experienced paralysis due to a medical procedure gone awry there are plenty of steps you can take, not to reverse the damage as that may be impossible, but to at least make the rest of your life more comfortable. If you have suffered paralysis due to a flawed medical operation you might not be able to work or life as you once did. While nothing can give you back the mobility and freedom you once enjoyed, you may be entitled to significant monetary compensation.

Obviously, medical malpractice does not occur through intent by the doctor. It is really an accident. But just as automobile accidents often end with litigation, so can surgical accidents. In fact, medical doctors pay incredibly high insurance premiums to protect themselves from having to pay out of pocket.

There is a reason why these insurance bills are so high – medical accidents that cause paralysis happen.

It is likely that the doctor will apologize profusely for his mistake. Remember, the surgeon did not intend to have a mishap but that does not take away the fact that your life may be irrevocably altered.
