The brain is the most valuable aspect of our body. During surgery, the utmost care should be taken by medical professionals to ensure that no damage is done to the brain. In most cases, procedures are safely conducted and there are no consequences–however, negligence and irresponsible medical staff can sometimes cause catastrophic brain injuries. One of the most common injuries is the anoxic brain injury, which has many symptoms and many causes. Read on to find out why legal action is necessary when brain injury occurs due to medical malpractice.
How Does Anoxic Brain Injury Occur?
There are actually many reasons for anoxic brain injury, and not all of them are due to brain surgery. In fact, the causations can vary from incorrect medication all the way to anesthesia error. This means that the condition could happen to just about anyone who relies on medication, or who has needed anesthetics for medical procedures. When the risk is so high, medical professionals need to pay close attention to their patients. But this is not always taking place, and results in medical malpractice.
What Are the Symptoms?
Anoxic brain injury has symptoms that include short-term memory loss, visual disturbances, lack of coordination, movement disorders, loss of consciousness or coma, and many more. These effects are devastating for adults, but can also ruin a child’s life. With symptoms this serious, it’s important to accost those accountable. Medical professionals should be trustworthy, and have studied for years to be able to complete procedures with precision and care. Without these qualities, their reputation as medical professionals should be tarnished, and rightfully so. Costs due to an anoxic brain injury can destroy a family, through hospital bills, aftercare programs, and emotional damage. If medical malpractice has led to an anoxic brain injury for you or a loved one, seek legal action as soon as possible.
