Cauda equina syndrome

“You gave me confidence for a good outcome. I am glad I found you. ”

Mr W Devon
Cauda Equina syndrome is a serious condition that can cause extreme lower back pain, numbness, paralysis and bowel or urination problems.

Our Clinical Negligence team has experts in making substantial compensation claims in cases where medical negligence has resulted in the condition becoming worse, usually due to a failure to recognise and treat the condition quickly enough (e.g. by a GP, physiotherapist, or chiropractor) or because of poor treatment by a hospital department or specific doctor.
