Brain Injury & Brain Damage

When things don’t go right, we are here to get you the answers you deserve.

Brain injuries or brain damage can be temporary or permanent. The effects can be mild or catastrophic and are almost always life changing for patients and their families. Brain injuries can cause cognitive impairment (when a person has trouble remembering, learning new things, concentrating, or making decisions that affect their everyday life) and / or physical disability.

Injuries to the brain often occur due to serious car accidents or accidents at work. Brain damage can also occur due to an illness or medical condition such as meningitis, a stroke, a brain aneurysm or sepsis. Unfortunately, brain damage / brain injuries can also be caused by medical negligence. This can be as a result of a delay in medical care being provided, failure to diagnose a condition or misdiagnosis of a condition. Children can also suffer brain injury as a result of a lack of oxygen to their brain during birth.  This can also be as a result of medical negligence. Whatever the cause, the injuries can be life-changing.

If you or a loved one think you have suffered a brain injury, our experienced medical (clinical) negligence specialists can advise whether you have a claim.

When things don’t go right with your medical treatement, we are here to help you get the answers you deserve and the compensation you need to get your life back on track.

Brain injuries caused by medical negligence

Medical professionals owe a duty of care to their patients and in most cases medical treatment will be of a high standard. Unfortunately, mistakes or poor levels of care can occur leading to catastrophic or fatal injuries.

Some of the common causes of brain injury as a result  of medical negligence are:

  • birth asphyxiation (lack of oxygen during birth)
  • lack of oxygen to the brain during surgery
  • misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis and treatment of a medical condition
  • overdose of medication
  • sepsis

If you or a family member has suffered a brain injury as a result of medical negligence you may be entitled to compensation.
