Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome

Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome is a neurological disorder caused by the deficiency of thiamine which is commonly associated with weight loss surgery, long hospitalizations, post-surgery malnutrition, and alcoholism.

It is a fatal condition that can cause life-long injuries and is often characterized by a range of symptoms, including confusion, memory loss, difficulty with coordination and balance, eye movement abnormalities and hypothermia.

Sadly, doctors commonly fail to see the signs of this disorder, even after a patient exhibits related symptoms, leading to missed opportunities for early detection and life-threatening and life-altering situations.

If you or your loved one has been involved in a situation where the doctor has misdiagnosed the presence of Wernicke-Korsakoff, then you might be able to hold the medical provider responsible.

U&C can help you navigate the legal process and pursue compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages.
