Medical Malpractice Resulting in Brain Injury

When medical personnel cause a traumatic brain injury

Brain injuries can happen in car accidents, motorcycle accidents, falls, workplace accidents or recreational accidents. Most people are aware of that. But when a brain injury happens in a hospital or clinic where a patient should feel safe, the doctors, nurses and other clinic and hospital personnel who caused a brain injury by their actions or inactions should be held accountable.

The results of a brain injury can include:

  • Loss of cognitive ability
  • Loss of mobility
  • Loss of sight or other senses
  • Recurring, debilitating headaches
  • Loss of independence
  • Seizures
  • Partial or total paralysis
  • Death

Brain injuries in hospitals and clinics are caused by lack of oxygen to the brain (particularly in birth injuries and anesthesia mistakes), falls during patient transfers, surgical errors and other mistakes. Lack of attention to protocols and delayed response to patient distress are often at fault.
