Brain Injuries Caused by Medical Malpractice

Philadelphia and Allentown, Pennsylvania and New Jersey

Some brain injuries are caused by accidents – such as a truck accident, a blunt blow to the head in a slip-and-fall, or the concussive power of an electrical shock. However, other brain injuries are caused by medical negligence in hospitals and doctor’s offices: the last place we would expect to sustain such injuries.

When a medical professional acts in a manner that is inconsistent with accepted standards of care, they can and should be held accountable for any injuries they cause. In the case of traumatic brain injury, this could include cognitive disabilities, psychiatric problems, memory loss, paralysis, and even death.

Examples of Medical Malpractice Resulting in Brain Injury

One of the most common types of medical malpractice is birth injury. When oxygen is cut off from a baby’s brain during delivery, the end result can be cerebral palsy or another disability that permanently affects a child’s future.

Other examples of medical malpractice that result in brain injury include:

  • Botched brain tumor surgery
  • Failure to diagnose a brain tumor
  • Infection resulting from surgery
  • Over-medication
  • Improper use of anesthesia

Millions of people entrust their lives to the care of medical professionals every day, believing they will pay a level of attention consistent with our country’s standards of healthcare. When they fail to do so, and you or a loved one suffer the consequences, you have a right to seek compensation for your losses.
