Brain Injuries as the Result of Medical Malpractice
A brain injury could occur under a variety of circumstances in a healthcare setting:
- During labor and delivery
- As the result of a medication error or overdose
- During a brain tumor surgery
- Due to a misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose of a stroke
- Because of hospital-acquired infections
- From a heart attack
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are caused by a sudden blow to the head. If a doctor fails to adequately treat a TBI and you suffer further brain damage as a result, contact one of our medical malpractice attorneys who can help you take legal action.
