Medical Malpractice Involving Brain Damage And Spinal Cord Injuries

Few injuries are more devastating than those impacting the central nervous system. Spinal cord injuries, paralysis and brain damage have lifelong repercussions. The patient's mobility, cognitive functioning, personality and quality of life may never be the same.

Sadly, many of these injuries are preventable. Medical malpractice accounts for a significant number of brain and spinal cord injury cases. Many of these cases involve accident-related injuries that were improperly diagnosed. Many involve birth trauma such as hypoxia (lack of oxygen), which can cause lasting damage to the infant's still-developing brain. Many result from other potentially life-threatening conditions — such as heart attacks, aneurysms and strokes — that were not promptly detected or treated.

Brain and spinal cord injuries take a significant toll from both financial and emotional perspectives. Financially, the patient may require multiple surgeries, long-term rehabilitation, accessibility modifications to the home and perhaps even round-the-clock care. Emotionally, the trauma of the injuries encompasses the patient and his or her loved ones alike.
