Delayed Diagnosis Causes Bowel and Bladder Dysfunction


Litigation Type - Medical Malpractice

Client Injury - Bowel and Bladder Dysfunction

Our client went to her local Emergency Room with complaints of decreased sensation in her perineum and feet as well as low back pain. She was discharged home on pain medications. The following day our client went to the Emergency Room of a larger hospital with the same but worsening complaints. She was again discharged home on pain medications. The next day she returned to the second Emergency Room with worsening symptoms: she was barely able to walk and had urinated herself. An MRI of her lower spine was ordered, but was not done for 16 hours. The MRI revealed an epidural abscess with psoas and para-spinal muscle abscesses that were surgically addressed.

Paul Schweiger filed an action for our client claiming that the delay in the diagnosis and treatment of her condition worsened her outcome.  Paul Schweiger settled her case for $550,000.
