Connecticut Medical Malpractice: Striking a Nerve
Connecticut medical malpractice can occur in several ways: failure to order proper testing or referrals to specialists, failure to inform the patient of less invasive alternative procedures and actual mistakes during surgery, treatments or procedures.
Occasionally negligence by a healthcare provider can cause nerve damage. It can vary from mild discomfort to extremely severe causing paralysis. The most common nerve injuries due to negligence are:
- Laceration of the nerve during a surgical procedure
- Traction or stretching of the nerve during treatment
- Compression or pressure on the nerve during treatment
- Injury from drug injection
