Pain Management Doctor Medical Malpractice in Minnesota

When a Pain Management Doctors Commits Medical Malpractice in Minnesota, a Patient Could be Permanently Injured or Killed


A pain management doctor is a common specialty that a victim with chronic pain may go to.  This chronic pain could be after a traumatic accident like a car crash, from sports injuries, due to cancer treatment like chemotherapy and radiation, or due to the natural aging process.  Pain management doctors help to block pain through the use of procedures like ablation, which can kill damaged nerves which send pain signals for no reason, or through the use of injections to numb pain.  Pain management doctors may also prescribe a course of medication to help relief pain within active treatment.


However, when a pain management doctor makes a mistake due to medical malpractice it can result in very serious and permanent injuries to a patient’s spinal cord or nerves—both which do not regenerate.  This is part of the central and peripheral nervous system, which injuries here can completely radiate through a patient’s entire body.  Victims of a pain management doctor’s malpractice in St. Paul, Minneapolis, Rochester, or anywhere else in Minnesota should learn some common causes and mistakes due to pain management malpractice to protect their rights.


Common Causes of Pain Management Medical Malpractice in Minneapolis


Because pain management is about treating pain receptors and signals, which come from nerves, the spinal cord, and the brain, injuries here are often permanent and incredibly painful.  Victims of a pain management doctor’s malpractice could suffer years of excruciating pain even due to a simple and small mistakes.  This could result in an inability to return to work and an inability to perform even basic daily functions.


Some common causes of a pain management doctor’s medical malpractice in Minnesota include the following:


  • Puncturing the spinal cord during an injection causing irreparable harm;
  • Damaging healthy nerves which develop a neuroma and become constantly painful, cause pins and needles, become unable to move, or go permanently numb;
  • Using nerve ablation on the wrong nerves, such as healthy nerves or motor nerves;
  • Overprescribing pain medications such as opioids which result in an overdose or severe narcotic addiction;
  • Breaking off tools or needles in a patient, particularly in dangerous locations near nerves;
  • Damaging important structures like blood vessels, nerves, or even organs during a procedure;
  • Failing to use guided techniques for infections and blindly performing injections; and
  • Many other causes.
