Cauda Equina Syndrome – Client Receives Compensation

Posted By admin - 28th June 2012

Moosa – Duke Solicitors have this week secured compensation for a client in a claim for medical negligence against a hospital in Leicestershire. There was a delay in diagnosing our client, who was 39 years of age at the time of the incident.  She suffered from a disc prolapse and the delay in diagnosing this resulted in her suffering what is known as Cauda Equina Syndrome. This left her doubly incontinent, as well as her losing sensation in parts of her lower body. Our client was awarded over £800,000 in compensation.
