BRAIN INJURY / DAMAGE MALPRACTICE LAWSUIT
Brain injury is the result of a congenital or acquired traumatic injury that impairs the functioning of the brain. Brain injury can be present at birth or the result of a birthing accident. Brain injury may be the result of an accident during the course of one’s life. Brain injury severity can depend on the extent of trauma and the quality of medical care that the brain injury victim receives. In some cases brain injury is caused or compounded by medical malpractice.
If medical malpractice causes brain damage/brain injury, compensation can include payment for pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost earnings, cost of care, and other damages. It is critical to contact The Fitzgerald Law Firm as soon as possible so we can gather and preserve evidence.
NEGLIGENT TREATMENT OF BRAIN INJURY IS MEDICAL MALPRACTICE
Approximately half of all traumatic brain injury cases are a result of automobile accidents. Other causes of traumatic brain injury can include sporting accidents and slips and falls. Immediate brain injury medical care is crucial to the outcome of a brain injury. Anoxia, or lack of oxygen to the brain, must be monitored for and quickly addressed; otherwise the severity of brain injury can increase remarkably. Swelling and bleeding in the brain can compound brain injury and must also be treated immediately. Secondary brain injury such as seizures, edema, and hematomas also need to be watched for and treated. Early intervention and proper health care attention is crucial to brain injury victim survival.
If brain injury is not properly treated by professional medical staff it can lead to more serious injuries. Medical malpractice may be the cause of further brain injury if medical professionals fail to act immediately and appropriately in brain injury cases.
