Why do I need a cauda equina lawyer?
There are numerous reasons why you might require the services of an Indiana cauda equina lawyer. One of the most common reasons is that you were injured in a car accident. When a person is in a car accident, they can be injured in a variety of ways. For example, they could be thrown from a car, suffer from severe whiplash, or experience back pain. While these injuries can be excruciatingly painful, the most severe can be permanent. The cauda equina is the region of the spine between the lower part of the spine and the neck. The nerves that travel through this area maintain and control many vital functions.
This includes control of the bladder, bowel, muscles, and sexual organs. If you have experienced any of the following symptoms that could be caused by a cauda equina problem, you should consult with a cauda equina lawyer: numbness, tingling, pain, weakness, loss of bladder or bowel control, problems with urination or defecation, pain when walking, and problems with sexual function. Other factors that can cause cauda equina include a fall, an injury, cancer, an infection, a tumor, or a congenital defect. If you believe you have been harmed by a physician, hospital, or other health care provider, you should speak with a cauda equina attorney.
What Is Cauda Equina?
Cauda equina is the medical term for a condition in which the spinal nerves become compressed between two vertebrae and the spinal cord. The most common location for this condition is the lumbar spine. Cauda equina is a relatively uncommon condition that can cause severe neurological symptoms and even paralysis. Unfortunately, some people develop cauda equina syndrome, which occurs when the nerve roots are stretched, cut, or compressed. The end result can be permanent paralysis. It is a complicated condition that requires prompt diagnosis and treatment. Cauda equina syndrome can occur when a person falls, slips, trips, or otherwise has an accident.
Other health issues, such as a tumor, infection, or an autoimmune disease, can also cause the condition. Sometimes the cause is unknown. There are two types of cauda equina syndrome. One is known as acute cauda equina syndrome, and the other as chronic cauda equina syndrome. Acute cauda equina syndrome is distinguished by the sudden onset of pain, numbness, weakness, or loss of bladder or bowel control. Chronic cauda equina syndrome is a progressive condition. It frequently begins with mild symptoms that worsen over time.
