Do I have a case if I went in for my 4th chemo on my liver but woke up paralyzed?
Question Details: I am paralized from ribs down; it is irreversible. I walked into treatment and now will never walk again.
You MAY have a case; it depends on--
1) Did the chemo or something done to you while it was being adminstered caused the paralysis? It very likely did, but has a doctor or medical professional confirmed that his was the case? There must be a proven causal link.
2) If the chemo or treatment caused the paralysis, was the way the chemo was administered, or dose, or cumulative amount (you write that this was your 4th treatment) or way you were otherwise handled, etc. at the treatment center, negligent or careless in some way? The law accepts that medicine is an art, not a science, in many ways, and that sometimes medical care providers do everything right or expected of them, but the patient still suffers. You have to have some evidence that the medical team did something wrong--e.g. was careless in some way--to establish liability, since if they did everything write, they are not liable.
Once you know the answers to the two above questions, you will know if you have a case.
