Cauda Equina case results

A multi-million dollars recovery for a Butler County man who suffered a delay in diagnosing cauda equina syndrome. This is a condition in which a ruptured disk presses on the bottom of the spinal cord and, if not detected, can cause paralysis of the legs. Unfortunately, that is what happened to this man in his mid-30s. He had symptoms suggesting that there might be something compressing his spinal cord, but there was a delay in getting a CT scan or MRI in order to discover it. Read the full case summary here.

Jury verdict of $1.8 million for a 34-year-old Allegheny County resident who experienced a delay in diagnosing cauda equina syndrome. The man had reported to a local emergency room with tingling in his legs, back pain and numbness. A CT scan was done which was supposedly normal, and he was discharged to home. The patient's cauda equina was correctly diagnosed three days later, and as a result of the delay, the man was left with a foot drop and impaired bowel and bladder function.
