For Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice

Healthcare providers are required to provide medical treatment that is in accordance with accepted standards of care and practice within the medical community. When a healthcare provider deviates from these well-established protocols, medical errors – resulting in injury or death – often result. If you were injured as a result of medical negligence, you may seek monetary compensation for your injuries.

Brain Injuries and Medical Malpractice, Including Some Symptoms:

Brain injuries – also known as traumatic brain injuries or TBI – result in some of the most serious of all injuries. When a brain injury is caused from deviating from known and accepted standards of medical care, the result is almost certainly medical negligence/medical malpractice. Possible effects and results of brain injuries include – but are not limited to – the following:

  • Short term and long term memory loss
  • Cognitive impairment that may be partial or total
  • Bodily function limitations or total loss of movement
  • Comas that may last for years
  • Alterations in mood, consciousness, alertness, functioning
  • Changes in thought and speech patterns and abilities
  • Sight and/or sound abnormalities
  • Constant or frequent dizziness, fainting, imbalance
  • The senses of taste and smell are often altered or completely destroyed

In cases like these, medical negligence and/or medical malpractice may have occurred.
