What to Know About Neurosurgery Malpractice Cases
Although advancements in neurosurgery have resulted in safer outcomes for brain and spinal surgeries, there are still serious risks when going under the knife. During some of these delicate surgeries, a neurosurgeon's neglect or inaction could easily cause serious injuries. A wrong move during a spinal surgery could result in paralysis, and a misdiagnosis could cause death. Here are some additional questions our clients ask:
What Does a Neurosurgeon Do?
Neurosurgeons treat conditions affecting the brain and central nervous system with surgical procedures. After graduating from medical school, these medical professionals must complete a neurosurgery residency program that can take between five to seven years because the medical training is so complex.
They may operate on the brain, spinal cord and nerves to heal or improve function after trauma, injuries, or illness. They may work with neurologists and other medical doctors to diagnose and treat a variety of neurological conditions. Some types of conditions that neurosurgeons work on include:
- Brain or spinal infections
- Tumors involving the brain, nerves, spinal cord, spine, or skull
- Nerve compression or injuries
- Degenerative diseases of the spine
- Shunt revisions
- Traumatic injuries to the brain, nerves, spinal cord, bones of the spine, or skull
- Stroke, aneurysms, brain hemorrhages, and other neuromuscular disorders

How Much Compensation Am I Entitled To?
Compensation may depend on the severity of the injury as well as the impacts it's had on you as a survivor or on the survivor's family. Types of compensation can include:
- Current and future medical costs
- Lost wages or income
- Money for equipment, therapy, and prescriptions needed due to the injury
