The brain is clearly an important part of your body. During a surgery or relevant procedure, it’s imperative that medical personnel do not harm or damage the brain. That’s usually the result with most cases, as surgeons are highly skilled in their area of work. The unfortunate scenario is that there are instances where the medical staff makes mistakes, and out of those mistakes results a case of medical malpractice or negligence. A catastrophic brain injury is a horrific scenario, and one of the most common brain injuries is the anoxic injury. If you or a loved one suffered from a brain injury, you have the right seek compensation.
What Is An Anoxic Brain Injury And How Does It Occur?
An anoxic brain injury occurs due to a lack of oxygen reaching the brain. A cause of this could be as simple as erroneous medication prescribed or anesthesia being improperly applied. This tells us that the possibility of an anoxic brain injury could technically happen to anyone, especially if your condition has a strong reliance on medication like this. The risk implied with brain surgery is incredibly high, and doctor’s know this. So, it’s important for medical professionals to be fully focused and not cut corners. This doesn’t always occur, and that’s when medical malpractice comes into play.
What Can Anoxic Brain Injury Lead To?
Anoxic brain injury has a variety of symptoms, and each can physically and mentally impair your well-being. You’ll start to notice a severe lack of concentration ability, which can hinder you in daily activities. If your day to day life is affected by the impact of this injury, that’s a cause for concern. Additional symptoms include short-term memory loss, visual limits or disturbances, movement disruptions, and loss of consciousness. The costs that come with this injury can be insurmountable, and it should not be your burden to manage. The medical staff should have been properly trained and completed the surgery as necessary. If malpractice has led to this result, seek legal action.
