Oregon Anesthesiologist Error Attorney
Fighting for the Rights of Clients Injured by an Epidural Injection
Usually, an epidural injection is given by an anesthesiologist who has specialized training in pain management. These types of injections are extremely serious, due to their proximity to the spinal cord. When done correctly, they can be very effective for managing pain and allowing clients to heal. However, when done incorrectly, serious and permanent injuries can occur.
Clients should not have to tolerate injuries that were caused by anesthesiologist error or the improper placement of an epidural injection. My name is Robert Miller, a medical malpractice lawyer in Eugene, Oregon. I have handled numerous cases in which clients have been injured by an epidural injection. I offer a free initial consultation so clients can meet with me to discuss their situation and how it may be possible for us to hold a medical facility or anesthesiologist responsible for negligence.
- The number of epidural injections given in a certain time period need to be limited. If they are not, complications can occur.
- If an injection is given for a condition that it is not known to help, a complication called cauda equina can occur. This begins with an abundance of low back pain and numbness in parts of the body that may have required surgery instead of an injection.
- If the medication is injected directly into the spinal column, it can cause permanent paralysis.
- The failure to recognize that the injection is not the correct treatment for the condition can negligently cause the worsening of the initial condition.
