When a brain injury is caused by medical negligence

Over the past several years, numerous media outlets have begun reporting extensively on the causes of traumatic brain injury. A great deal of this reporting has focused on sports-related brain injury cases, for a number of reasons. First, high-profile organizations like the National Football League and the National Hockey League have been accused by their own players of withholding valuable information about the prevalence of brain injuries within their player populations. Second, a staggering number of child, teen and amateur athletes have sustained these kinds of injuries over the past several years.

However, it is important to understand that significant rates of brain injury do not occur as a result of sports-related impacts. Americans regularly sustain brain injuries as a result of car accidents, falls, work-related accidents and medical negligence. Although the media may not focus its attention on these routine causes of brain injury, it is important for victims to know that they are not alone if they have sustained a brain injury due to a cause other than sports-related impacts.

Some of the most tragic and costly brain injury cases that have occurred in recent years have occurred as a result of medical negligence. Many birth injuries occur annually because infants are not given access to adequate oxygen during the birth process. This oxygen deprivation can lead to brain injuries which alter the course of these infants’ lives. Other brain injury cases occur when patients are not given correct medications, suffer adverse effects in surgery and are otherwise treated in negligent ways. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury as a result of medical negligence, you are not alone. Please understand that others have been exposed to the same kinds of experiences and please understand that an experienced attorney can help you understand your legal options in the wake of this kind of injury.
