Expertise in head injury compensation claims

Brain damage caused by medical negligence can have catastrophic effects both for the patient and their family. Therefore, head injury compensation claims are something The Medical Negligence Experts take very seriously.

Brain injuries can range in severity from barely noticeable. Such as mild memory loss or an inability to concentrate for extended periods of time. There’s also more considerable brain injuries:

  • physical disability;
  • coma, and;
  • even death.

Suffering brain damage can be hard enough to come to terms with but knowing your life has been altered forever due to medical mistakes and negligence is heartbreaking.

What is Brain Damage Negligence?

Brain damage negligence can refer to injuries during the diagnosis and treatment of a pre-existing condition. Or to brain damage as a result of mistakes made during the treatment of another type of condition. Examples of brain damage negligence can include:

  • Lack of oxygen during birth or surgery
  • Administering incorrect medication
  • Anaesthetic errors
  • Delaying the treatment of certain illnesses, such as a stroke

Not all brain damage is a result of negligence. Indeed, substandard care exacerbates brain damage. So you may be able to make a medical negligence compensation claim.

A case study of a brain damage negligence features a patient who sought help at A&E after experience severe headaches and vomiting. After admission to hospital, a series of delays and errors took place, including:

  • incorrectly recording he was discharged;
  • when he was still in a hospital bed, and;
  • hours before he was given a CT scan;
  • led to misdiagnosis of a brain cyst.

Despite rushing him into surgery, the patient’s condition led him to die the following day.
