Pennsylvania Medical Malpractice Claims — Spinal Bleeding
tell us about your case
Bold labels are required.
Significant risks are involved with any surgical procedure to the spine. In the past decades, specialization, improved training for physicians, and advanced surgical techniques have substantially reduced the likelihood of these complications.
At the same time, it is an unfortunate fact that surgical errors continue to occur, often due to doctor error, negligence by other members of the surgical team, or poorly designed or improperly observed surgical procedures. When errors happen, patients may suffer from complications including spinal bleeding, infection, paralysis, and even unnecessary death.
The Pittsburgh law firm of Biancheria & Maliver P.C. is committed to protecting the rights of those who are suffering from the effects of medical malpractice and negligence. From delayed diagnosis to medication errors or amputation of the wrong limb, medical mistakes cause far too many to suffer. The lawyers of Biancheria & Maliver work tenaciously to obtain the maximum fair financial compensation for their clients. Contact the firm to a free case assessment and evaluation.
Spinal Bleeding Caused by Surgical Error or Left Untreated
Because the spine is so fundamental to the body's structure, it is susceptible to permanent damage through accidents, infections and surgical errors. Any of these has the potential to cause pressure on the spinal cord from swelling or blood pooling around spinal cord tissue. Left undiagnosed and untreated, this pressure will cause the nerves to eventually die, resulting in cauda equina syndrome, paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia.
Whether the spinal bleeding is the direct result of an error during surgery or it was caused by trauma but a doctor failed to diagnose it properly, the results are the same. The patient can suffer catastrophic harm from medical malpractice by any health care professional responsible for treating spinal injuries.
At Biancheria & Maliver, all cases are reviewed by attorney and board-certified internist Deborah Maliver. Prior to attending law school, Dr. Maliver was a practicing physician. Today, she is an effective and knowledgeable advocate with access to a team of high-quality consulting medical professionals who evaluate claims and provide testimony at trial.
She and our legal team have built a solid record of success in representing patients who are suffering from the effects of medical malpractice. Whether a hernia surgery was performed at the wrong site or a surgical sponge left in the body resulted in sepsis, Dr. Maliver and the firm's legal team are committed to holding negligent doctors, nurses and other medical professionals accountable for the harm they cause.
