Spinal Cord Compression Diagnosed as Multiple Sclerosis
We filed and settled a case against a doctor for a misdiagnosis of a 46-year-old man. The doctor improperly diagnosed our client with multiple sclerosis when he actually was suffering from spinal cord compression due to a disc herniation. We argued that had the doctor made the proper diagnosis surgery would have been done years earlier to relieve the spinal cord compression and our client would not have suffered the irreversible spinal cord damage which has left him a paraplegic.
