Spinal Cord Injuries

Nashville Spinal Cord Injury Medical Malpractice Attorney

Filing a Lawsuit for a Spinal Cord Injury Caused By Medical Malpractice in Tennessee

Paralysis, quadriplegia, paraplegia, or nerve damage can result from many different types of spinal cord injuries. One of the most tragic causes of spinal cord injuries is medical negligence or malpractice.

While doctors and medical professionals are supposed to help prevent injuries, they can sometimes act in a negligent manner, causing more harm to a patient. When this happens, it's important to have a strong personal injury lawyer on your side to pursue the compensation you need to rebuild your life.

At Kinnard Law, we are very experienced in these cases. We are familiar with the unique considerations that apply in these cases, and we know how to get results. With 150+ years of experience and counsel from Board-Certified Medical Malpractice Specialists, we are the team you want on your case.

Accomplished Trial Attorneys in Spinal Cord Injury Cases

We are aggressive trial attorneys who prepare every case as if it will go to court. Many cases settle for a lesser amount after a period of negotiation, but opposing counsel and insurance companies know that we have the courtroom skills to get maximum compensation for our clients.

In March of 2010, Randy Kinnard from our firm won a $22 million record-setting verdict for a woman and her husband in a spinal cord injury medical malpractice case.

While performing surgery to repair our client's broken leg, doctors inserted an epidural catheter that led to a spinal bleed because they failed to take into account the blood thinner medication she was on. The woman was paralyzed from the waist down. We obtained a $19 million verdict for the woman—the largest in Tennessee history in a case of this type. We also obtained a $3 million verdict on behalf of her husband.

The Danger of Medical Error & Spinal Cord Injuries

Medical error during back surgery to correct a herniated disc or degenerative disc disease can also cause permanent spinal cord injury. Failure to monitor a tumor or other condition that may cause damage to the nerves of the spinal cord may also result in a serious spinal cord injury.

Regardless of the cause, the victim is left with a lifetime of consequences.

Our knowledgeable medical malpractice attorneys in Nashville offer dedicated personal attention and determined advocacy for clients in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Alabama who have suffered an injury to the spinal cord due to the negligence of a doctor, hospital, or other healthcare professional.

Using Experts to Build Strong Cases

One of the keys to getting results in any personal injury lawsuit is expert testimony. Our firm is proud to provide access to a nationwide network of doctors, nurses, and medical specialists who can evaluate your case and help determine who is at fault for your spinal cord injury.

We also employ financial experts who can help us evaluate your case and the long-term damages you have suffered in terms of lost wages, as well as estimating the likely cost of ongoing physical therapy, rehabilitation, any future medical procedures, and long-term care.
