Leigh Day Solicitors

Olive-LewinWe know that a spinal injury can affect every aspect of your life and the lives of your family members.  If your cauda equina syndrome has been misdiagnosed, diagnosed too late or caused by medical negligence you will want answers.  You may also need financial compensation to help you rebuild your life and to ensure you receive the treatment and support you need now and in the future.  Leigh Day has one of the country’s largest and most well-respected medical negligence teams.  Our lawyers are experienced in running complex and challenging cases and have been bringing successful compensation claims for spinal injuries, including cauda equina, for over 30 years.  These are just some of the clients for whom we have achieved significant financial settlements:

  • a client who was left with cauda equina syndrome after surgery for spinal decompression.
  • a client who was left with saddle anaesthesia, numbness in the back of both thighs, and weakness in the right leg. She is also doubly incontinent.
  • a client where there was a failure to diagnose cauda equina syndrome following an elective caesarean section.
  • a client who suffered cauda equina after a delay in diagnosis by GPs and A&E departments.

We have offices in London, Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham, but we act for clients all over the country and are happy to visit you at your convenience at home or in hospital.
