What is the relationship between brain injuries and medical malpractice?

Brain Injuries and Medical Malpractice

One all too common type of medical malpractice involves brain injury. Brain injuries are tricky to diagnose and require specific medical care once they are found. Unfortunately, the correct care and diagnosis is not always completed in time, leaving patients with a devastating lasting brain injury. The three most common ways that malpractice can lead to brain injury is waiting too long to treat a patient while they are in a coma or otherwise incapacitated, failing to diagnose a concussion or other mild brain trauma, and realizing the long term effects of even a slight brain injury. If you or your loved one was injured in this manner and you feel that you may not have received correct care or the best level of care, you may have a legal case against the doctor or other medical staff. Only a brain injury attorney who specializes in these medical cases will be able to tell you for sure.
