Brain Damage

Did You or a Loved One Suffer Brain Damage Due to Medical Error?

The large amount of faith we put in our healthcare providers makes medical malpractice even more frightening. Unfortunately, some doctors, nurses, and medical staff do commit serious errors in their patient care.

When a healthcare provider is negligent, one of the most serious risks is anoxic brain injury, or problems with the brain that result from a lack of oxygen. Even a few minutes of oxygen deprivation can have lifelong consequences, including seizures, coma, or brain cell death.

Anoxic brain injury can be caused by a variety of healthcare mistakes, including surgical errors, tracheal compression and improper medication. If you or a loved one has suffered from preventable brain injury due to medical error, your healthcare provider deserves to be held accountable.

Your Options

Brain damage that can be caused by medical malpractice may include cerebral palsy, hydrocephalus, seizures, stroke, motor disorders, and intellectual or developmental disabilities. These disorders can be very severe and very expensive to treat. You should not be burdened alone with the cost of healthcare if that disorder is due to an error by the healthcare provider.

Although a financial settlement cannot make up for the heartache of preventable brain damage, it can help cover the costs of future treatment. An experienced attorney can help you figure out whether you might be a candidate for such a settlement.
