Failure To Diagnose Spinal Cord Injuries


Springfield Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Some spinal cord injuries are abrupt and sudden. Others can only be recognized by a highly-trained physician. When a neurologist or orthopedic specialist fails to diagnose a spinal cord injury, or order more tests to determine the true nature and extent of the injury, serious and life-changing complications may develop.

If you or a loved one have suffered serious complications because a doctor failed to diagnose a spinal cord injury, you have rights. The firm of Devereaux, Stokes, Fernandez & Leonard will seek full and complete compensation for you.
