Our clinical negligence experts recognise what a difficult time this can be for you and your family, and we will make sure your compensation includes any funds necessary for ongoing medical care.
Brain injury caused by medical negligence
There are many different kinds of medical negligence that can lead to a brain injury claim, with mistakes made across a range of circumstances.
Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a problem can lead to a brain injury developing or worsening, with strokes, haemorrhages and brain tumours just some of the conditions that can result.
Tied in with this is incorrect medication, which can sometimes cause swelling on the brain if the dose is too high. This could also apply to anaesthetic administering prior to surgery.
Brain injuries may also occur during surgery if not enough oxygen is supplied to the brain while the patient is unconscious. In some cases, it may also be that the required consent was not obtained before surgery commenced.
Another very serious case concerns mistakes made during birth, where oxygen to the baby’s brain is restricted during the process. This can lead to cerebral palsy, a permanent condition that affects motor function and can result in impaired balance, movement, hearing, learning ability, coordination and difficulty carrying out everyday tasks.
