A spinal hematoma, also called an epidural hematoma, is a mass of blood that presses on the spinal cord or nearby nerves and can cause permanent nerve damage if the pressure is not quickly relieved. Medical malpractice is an issue whenever there has been a substantial delay, hours to days, in identifying the problem and doing surgery to remove the blood.
