Many people trust their doctors to provide them with excellent care when they go in for any sort of procedure. When a doctor is negligent or makes a mistake, the patient may suffer a brain injury. Of course, brain injuries are very, very serious and can have life-changing results or even cause death. Some of the ways in which the negligence of a physician can cause a devastating brain injury include the following:
- Misdiagnosis of a brain injury
- Anesthesia errors
- Surgical errors
- Not providing enough oxygen to brain during birth
- Delayed diagnosis or treatment of a health issue
A brain injury is not only life-changing, it is also very expensive. An individual who suffered a brain injury due to the fault of a negligent physician may also suffer the financial burdens of medical expenses, an at-home aide, lost wages due to time away from work, and more. Therefore, they may want to bring a medical malpractice lawsuit to recover damages not only for those expenses but also for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and more.
If you have been the victim of a brain injury because a physician was negligent, you should consider your legal options. It is important to retain the services of an experienced medical malpractice attorney who can provide you with quality legal assistance and help you hold the doctor accountable.
