Brain Injury Caused by Medical Malpractice
This year, almost two million Americans will experience 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 brain injury cases could be caused by errors involving:
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, anoxic and hypoxic brain trauma
is not always immediately identified — even as the consequences
continue to harm the victim.
Representing Victims of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Unlike brain injuries caused by medical error and a lack of oxygen to the
brain, traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, are the result of a direct blow
to the head that causes damage to brain cells. Traumatic brain injuries
can be caused by all types of prevenatble accidents, including serious
truck accidents, slip and fall accidents, workplace accidents, assaults, and sports injuries.
Because brain cells cannot regenerate, even mild TBIs, such as mild concussions,
can cause lifelong changes to the brain. The most serious cases can completely
change a person's life, rendering them incapable of supporting themselves
and their families, carrying out daily tasks, doing the things they once
enjoyed, and even communicating with and relating to other people. The
personal, not to mention the financial, implications of this are enormous,
which is why working with a qualified brain injury lawyer is essential.
Victims of preventable accidents
should not have to suffer the financial consequences of someone else's negligence;
they have already suffered enough.
Brain injury is not always an easy diagnosis, but warning signs to watch
out for include:
- Sudden, unprecedented mood swings
- Irritability or other changes in personality and behavior
- Light sensitivity
- Blurry vision
- Disorientation / confusion
- Memory loss
- Nausea and vomiting
