Spinal Cord Injuries Due to Medical Malpractice
Trusted Medical Malpractice Lawyers in Nashville
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.

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 and Daniel Clayton 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 due to their medical malpractice. We obtained a $19 million verdict
for the woman—the largest in Tennessee history in a case of this
type. We also obtained $3 million verdict for 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 a doctor
or medical professional’s negligence.
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
