Cauda Equina Syndrome Compensation Claims

Cauda Equina Sydnrome is a serious condition which can result in range of neurological and physical problems, depending on how quickly it is treated. Quick diagnosis and intervention is crucial in ensuring there are minimal adverse effects.


If you believe that your diagnosis and treatment of cauda equine syndrome (CES) were delayed somehow, then you may have a claim for medical negligence.

Medical Negligence in Cauda Equina Cases

Cauda Equina Syndrome often requires urgent surgery to reduce pressure on the nerves at the base of the back. There is only a short window between the onset of symptoms and treatment to allow for the best chances of improvement. For information on the red flags to be aware of, see the symptoms section of the FAQs.

In some cases, misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis could be a result of medical negligence and there may be compensation that you can claim. Compensation is there to support the person whose life has changed, often quite substantially.

Compensation in cases of medical negligence

The range of outcomes in Cauda Equina Syndrome cases can vary widely. Common outcomes after surgery include; lower limb pain, numbness and paralysis, lack of bladder and bowel control, loss of sexual function, and mental health issues from such changes.

Compensation aims to help people who may be dealing with these changes, physically and emotionally. This may come in the form of counselling, supportive equipment and/or specialist therapists – every situation is different.
