New York Spinal Surgery-Unrecognized Nerve Injury

http://www.oginski-law.com

Listen in as Gerry Oginski, an experienced New York medical malpractice trial lawyer explains what happened when a woman’s complaints of nerve injury went undiagnosed leading to significant neurological injury.

A woman had spinal surgery and a few days later developed tingling, numbness and pain in her hands, legs and toes. Calls to the doctor’s office told the patient to stay at home until a hospital bed was available. When the woman’s condition worsened, she arrived at the hospital admitting office, as instructed, and waited 5 hours before being seen by a doctor. Then the doctor took a CAT scan- which was the wrong test to evaluate her condition. The correct imaging test was done a day later, further delaying the correct diagnosis and treatment. When the correct diagnosis was actually made, the neurosurgeon delayed another 8-10 hours before taking the patient to the operating room.

Testimonials

Gerry – I can’t thank you enough for guiding me through what would have been a disaster had anyone but you been behind the camera. My power point slides somehow disappeared from my laptop when using the hotel wireless internet … or maybe it was my “fat finger.” In any event, I knew the stuff because I had been giving public seminars on the content for years. But I tend to freeze without a visual cue. So, without visual cues, the day could well have been a huge disaster. While my practice niche is Elder Law, not PI or MedMal, you were like a football or basketball coach; despite my usual stumbles without visual cues, you were successful in getting me to go beyond the stumbles to a successful video shoot. Many thanks for your coaching!
