Las Vegas Spinal Injection Injury Attorney

Spinal injection injuries have been on the rise since the discovery of what had appeared to be a safe and effective way to treat chronic back pain. Epidural steroid injections containing anti-inflammatory corticosteroids are used to treat back pain and radiating pain in the arms and legs. The steroids also help with swelling and inflammation.

FDA Warning On Spinal Injections

The FDA in April of 2014 issued a warning that spinal injections of corticosteroids could have the following adverse effects; paraplegia, quadriplegia, stroke, seizures, nerve injury, spinal cord infarction, brain edema, and death.

In light of these warnings, doctors are scrambling to reduce the adverse side effects caused by spinal injections by creating protocols that might mitigate any problems associated with this popular treatment. However, even in their missives regarding possible protocols, they acknowledge the continuing risk associated with this procedure.

What You Should Do If You Have Suffered An injury

At Ladah Law Firm, PLLC, we stay abreast of medical stories that affect our clients. When it comes to spinal injection injuries, the dangers still exist. When a surgeon is aware of the dangers and proceeds anyway, especially in patients at risk for complications, they are guilty of malpractice. We disagree with the practice of using patients as lab rats so that a surgeon can improve his ability to continue the treatment without causing harm.

If you have suffered any of the following symptoms after an epidural steroid injection you should call 9-1-1:
• Loss of vision
• Dizziness
• Severe headache or seizures
• Numbness in your face or extremities
• Tingling in your legs or arms
Any one of these could indicate serious complications that could lead to disability and death.

Seeking Compensation For Your Suffering

When your doctor proceeds with a treatment that he or she isn’t fully qualified to perform and ignores the warnings for complications, then you are entitled to compensation for your injuries and losses. We will show through testimony from other doctors where your injection injury occurred, showing your surgeon liable for your condition. We will seek for the compensation you need and deserve. Call today to setup a free initial consultation with a spine injury attorney.
