Brain injuries can be caused by so many different things including car accidents, a bad fall, and sport injuries. These are things that are typically accidental and provide no reason to bring on a lawsuit. However, in some cases, your doctor can be the reason that you suffered a traumatic brain injury. If this is the case, justice should be served. Here is how medical malpractice can lead to brain injuries.
Medical Malpractice is when a doctor acts incompetently, which leads to an injury that would have otherwise been prevented. When it comes to mistakes in the medical field, something seemingly as minor as a small misjudgment in medication dosage can lead to a serious brain injury. Other things like mistakes or infection during the actual surgery can also cause brain injuries. If the doctors fails to diagnose a patient correctly or overlooks symptoms of things like strokes, tumors, or brain hemorrhages, it could lead to brain injuries because they weren’t able to act in time.
Brain injuries as a result of medical malpractice do not only occur in adults. Sometimes, brain injuries will occur during birth and affect the newborn. Brain Asphyxiation is a common cause of brain injuries in infants and occurs when there is a lack of oxygen going to the child’s brain. This could lead to something as serious as Cerebral Palsy. If a forceps and vacuum delivery method is used, putting too much pressure on the baby’s head can also cause brain injuries.
