"You gave me back a sense of hope and a vision of goodness, something I'd lost with the death of my husband."
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.

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.
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.
