Spinal Injection & Nerve Block into Spinal Cord

An elderly female had a spinal nerve block by an anesthesiologist for radiculopathy (pain due to nerve root compression) as a result of a vertebral disk problem. She became paralyzed quickly after the procedure. A lawsuit was filed by Mark Clore and the defense claimed that the woman had a rare stroke in her spinal cord that was unrelated to the nerve block. The lawsuit alleged, and Mark Clore was able to demonstrate with expert witnesses and imaging evidence, that the spinal cord damage occurred due to the anesthesiologist inserting the nerve block needle directly into her spinal cord, and then anesthetizing that part of her cord, instead of a “coincidental” and unrelated stroke having occurred in her spinal cord at the same location. The case settled for a confidential sum in the woman’s favor.
