Olive Lewin, specialist clinical negligence solicitor and partner at Leigh Day, has settled a claim for compensation on behalf of a client with Cauda Equina Syndrome for a substantial sum. Her client has been left with saddle anaesthesia, numbness on the back of both thighs, and weakness in the right leg.  Her client is also doubly incontinent.

What is Cauda Equina Syndrome?

Cauda Equina Syndrome (CES) occurs when the nerves within the spinal canal have been damaged. As a result, the nerves supplying the muscles of the legs, bladder, bowel and genitals do not function properly. Patients experience numbness, loss of sensation and pain in the legs, buttocks and pelvic region to varying degrees. The damage is usually permanent.

For more information about a possible claim relating to Cauda Equina Syndrome please contact our new client enquiry team of in-house nurses on 020 7650 1200 for a free initial consultation.
