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.

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 car accidents, 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
  • Headaches
  • Light sensitivity
  • Blurry vision
  • Disorientation / confusion
  • Memory loss
  • Nausea and vomiting
