Understanding Neurology

Neurology is a complex field of medicine geared to the diagnosis and treatment of both hereditary conditions and trauma injuries arising from common accidents. Neurologists and neurosurgeons encompass a variety of specialists whom treat conditions affecting the brain, spine and nervous system – some anatomical, others caused by blunt force trauma. Most will require some form of surgery to prevent further complications.
The brain is a complicated and delicate organ, therefore the risks associated with invasive surgery will always be higher than for other parts of the body. Fortunately, these risks are minimised thanks to the exceptional skill and precision of neurology specialists, and constant advancements in medical technology. Human error accounts for the vast majority of neurological and neurosurgical claims; often with devastating consequences for the patient and his/ her family.

Are You Entitled To Claim?

Injuries caused by neurological negligence vary somewhat in severity owing to the wide range of treatments and surgeries employed for managing and treating conditions. The vast majority of claims for this type of negligence are made for pre-operative complications, such as delayed patient referrals and misdiagnosis. Failures at this stage can make it extremely difficult to treat a condition once it has progressed, therefore early detection is often vital to prevent further complications.

In order for a claim to be considered, it must be proven beyond reasonable doubt that such failures were the primary cause of patient suffering. A medical negligence solicitor must also demonstrate that a competent medical professional would not have made the same mistake under the same circumstances. Neurological and neurosurgical claims are one of the most complicated areas of personal injury law, so it is vital the solicitor representing you has the necessary experience to see your claim to a successful conclusion.
