Medical malpractice brain injuries are serious and could negatively impact a patient’s quality of life. The reasons medical malpractice brain injuries occur varies, but it’s important that you are aware of the causes as well as the symptoms. If you or someone you know suffers from a brain injury due to medical malpractice, you’re entitled to legal help. Here’s what you need to know about the most common causes of medical malpractice brain injuries.

Misdiagnosis

One of the biggest causes of brain injuries is a misdiagnosis or a missed diagnosis. Many healthcare professionals fail to recognize blood clots, and when undetected, blood clots may be life-threatening. Brain injuries are also one of the most misdiagnosed health problems. If you fear that your brain injury was not treated or diagnosed correctly, it’s time to consult a legal professional.

Surgical Errors

If you find that after a surgical procedure, you’re experiencing headaches, difficulting balancing, and blurred vision, you could be suffering from brain damage as a result of a surgical error. This type of error must be corrected immediately or serious and long-term effects may occur.

Infection

Infections that could have been avoided or that were not treated in the proper amount of time are also one of the most major causes of medical malpractice brain injuries. There are many different kinds of infections that can severely damage the brain if they go undetected for long enough. If your healthcare professional failed to test you for a viral infection, you’re entitled to legal help.

Anoxia

Anoxia is a medical term that refers to a lack of oxygen to the brain. When your brain suffers from a lack of oxygen, mild to severe damage may occur. Without the proper amount of oxygen, a patient may experience seizures, coma, and brain death. If you’re unsure of whether or not these symptoms could have been avoided, talking to a medical malpractice team will help you understand what happened and how you can get justice.
