When you think about brain injuries, you might first think of hitting your head in a fall or car accident. However, brain injuries can also result from various types of medical malpractice. This is negligence by a medical professional that causes harm to a patient. If you think you sustained injuries due to medical malpractice, reach out to our skilled Chicago medical malpractice attorneys at Malman Law right away.
There are different types of brain injuries – traumatic brain injuries that result from trauma, as well as damage to brain tissue from oxygen deprivation or other medical events or incidents. The following are only some ways that medical professionals can cause brain injuries:
Doctors are supposed to diagnose and treat brain injuries – not cause them. If you suffered a brain injury from any type of medical malpractice, speak with our legal team immediately.
Anytime you suffer damage to your brain tissue, you can experience a wide range of effects and symptoms. Some of them might clear up after a few weeks or months, while other effects might be permanent and disabling. The signs and symptoms you experience will depend on what part of the brain sustained damage, as well as the severity of the damage.
Different effects might include:
All of the above can impact your life in many ways. You will likely have ongoing treatment and rehabilitative therapy to adjust to or overcome your symptoms. You might not be able to return to work, as your impairments might prevent you from performing your previous job duties. Brain injuries can also be very distressing injuries, which can cause both physical and mental pain and suffering for victims.
