Cauda equina syndrome (CES) can be a hugely debilitating condition if it is not treated quickly and effectively.
Its symptoms can be attributed to a variety of other causes, and given how rare CES is, affecting roughly 1 in 65,000 people, it can often go undetected or misdiagnosed.
If you feel you are suffering with what could be CES, it is vital you contact your GP and schedule a medical assessment.
Between 2008 and 2018 in Ireland, 71 claims for compensation in cases of cauda equina syndrome were filed – 42 were finalised and over €20 million was paid in damages.
If you feel you have suffered CES, or any form of spinal injury, as a result of medical negligence, you may want to consider contacting a Medical Negligence Solicitor who can assist you in a claim for compensation.
