Brain injuries as a result of medical malpractice are one of the most serious types of personal injury. According to a study by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly 2 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury every year. Most of these instances are a result of accidents. However, some brain injuries are the result of medical malpractice.
The brain is one of the most vital, sensitive parts of the body. If the brain is injured, it can create a lifetime of hardship, disability, or even death. When a medical professional does not provide adequate care and a traumatic brain injury occurs, the consequences may be more severe than any other type of injury.
There are many medical errors that may result in a traumatic brain injury. These include:
- Medication errors and overdoses
- Failure to diagnose or incorrect diagnosis
- Infection caused by surgery
- Errors during brain-related surgeries
Any traumatic brain injury that occurs due to medical malpractice should be dealt with through prompt legal action.
