Paralysis is a life altering disability that is almost always permanent. Paralysis can occur as a result of surgery near the spinal cord, as well as the failure to act on signs and symptoms of cord compression due to cervical or lumbar disc disease, tumor or other lesions. When a physician makes an error in surgery, fails to recognize a problem, is not adequately trained or experienced, or does not explain all alternative options to a patient, medical negligence may have occurred.
