What to Do if You Have Been Injured by Spinal Cord Stimulator

Surgeons who implant spinal cord stimulators have a duty to ensure that they perform the procedure correctly, warn patients about possible complications, and provide adequate aftercare instructions. If you have been injured by a spinal cord stimulator, you may could file a medical malpractice lawsuit against the healthcare professional responsible for your injury.

Through a Missouri medical malpractice claim, you can recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages related to the spinal cord stimulator injury. However, you will need to prove that the at-fault provider’s negligence caused the harm you are experiencing.

To protect your right to compensation after your injury, gather all records related to the procedure and your condition. Record any symptoms and complications you experience in a journal, and collect all relevant evidence related to the spinal cord stimulator malfunction.
