Neurology relates to the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the nervous system, most commonly involving the spinal cord and the brain.
A neurologist’s work involves not only treatment, but also neurological examinations, tests and observations. The accuracy of these tests and their reporting is essential to this area of medicine. Failure to accurately diagnose at the diagnostic stage can have a devastating effect on the patient, as it will influence subsequent treatment. A simple missed neurological symptom in an Emergency Department can have severe consequences on a patient.
Some of the most devastating cases are those which involve neurological injury to the brain or spine, whether from a trauma, accident or from clinical negligence. Our consultant neurologist expert witness, Prof Amir Al-Din has substantial experience of both personal injury and clinical negligence cases.
