This year, almost two million Americans will experience traumatic brain injuries, according to statistics published by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Some of these injuries can be attributed to medical malpractice.

Malpractice brain injury cases could be caused by errors involving:

  • Medication errors, such as over-medication and failure to screen for negative reactions to prescription drugs
  • Surgery errors
  • Birth injuries involving a lack of oxygen
  • Failure to diagnose stroke

Know the Warning Signs

When a doctor, registered nurse, anesthesiologist, midwife, or other healthcare professional fails to provide thorough and attentive care for his or her patients, the results can be devastating. In the case of brain injuries, these consequences can include lifelong pain and disability. Unfortunately, even in the case of a serious accident, brain trauma is not always immediately identified — even as the consequences continue to harm the victim.

Brain injuries are not always easy to diagnosis, but warning signs to watch out for include:

  • Sudden, unprecedented mood swings
  • Irritability or other changes in personality and behavior
  • Headaches
  • Light sensitivity
  • Blurry vision
  • Disorientation / confusion
  • Memory loss
  • Nausea and vomiting
