Helping People Suffering From Paralysis Due To Medical Negligence

Bold labels are required.
The spine is very much like the brain. It is a bundle of nerves, requires blood supply and is absolutely vital to life and health. It is also vulnerable to various injuries, from infection to strokes.
Biancheria & Maliver P.C. has seen many, many sad cases of paralysis that should not have happened. Medical malpractice was the cause, in the form of failure to identify infection or other problems. Even patients in severe pain have been treated casually, when serious and thorough examination was warranted. One patient was told he had back strain, when he actually had a serious condition that eventually resulted in partial paralysis.
Standard of Care
Any definition of medical negligence includes failure to adhere to standards in the medical community. Sometimes these standards are even documented, as with the American Society of Anesthesiologists.
A past client was negligently placed on an ordinary hospital floor when he should have been in the intensive care unit. He should have been monitored according to appropriate guidelines, such as a check every 15 minutes during the first hour, then less frequently. As a result of neglect, he is now paralyzed from the waist down. Another patient's spinal bleeding went undiagnosed and he permanently lost the control of his bowels and bladder.
