Brain and Spinal Injuries Caused by Medical Malpractice

The negligence of a medical professional often creates a ripple effect that could end up resulting in a patient’s mild to severe injuries or trauma. Sometimes these issues will be temporary. Other damages, however, can be life-threatening.

If you or a loved one has sustained the following brain and/or spinal injuries due to alleged medical malpractice, please contact Raynes & Lawn today:

Brain Injuries

  • Cerebrovascular Events: Failure to identify or address conditions predisposing individuals to strokes, such as blood clots or hemorrhages. Surgical procedures introducing reduced oxygen levels may contribute to stroke occurrences.
  • Embolic Events: Instances of blood clots in the brain overlooked by medical professionals, leading to severe consequences.
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): Negligence resulting in head trauma, commonly arising from accidents or improper medical procedures.
  • Hypoxic Incidents: Insufficient oxygen supply to the brain during surgical interventions or postoperative care, potentially causing significant harm.
  • Intracranial Hemorrhage: Bleeding within the skull, often attributed to surgical mishaps or undiagnosed medical conditions.
  • Infectious Complications: Negligence leading to postoperative infections affecting the brain, such as meningitis or encephalitis.

Spinal Injuries

  • Intervertebral Disc Herniation: Improper surgical techniques or negligence exacerbating spinal disc conditions.
  • Spinal Cord Compression: Failure to identify or treat conditions inducing spinal cord pressure, resulting in paralysis or loss of sensation.
  • Nerve Impairment: Surgical errors or negligence causing permanent damage to spinal nerves.
  • Paralytic Conditions: Failure to prevent or manage surgery-related complications, potentially leading to partial or complete paralysis.

How Medical Malpractice Can Cause Damage to the Brain and Spinal Cord

The brain and spine are part of the central nervous system (CNS). This structure is incredibly complex but also fragile. Even before a medical procedure, the slightest misstep can result in consequences that threaten the well-being of the CNS. Even post-operative care for the brain and spine is delicate.

Should the medical staff not review a patient’s history or fail to perform a step in a procedure, the consequences may be dire. For example, an improper incision could incur spinal damage. The misdiagnosis of a stroke could lead to someone suffering from a brain hemorrhage. Even anesthesia errors while undergoing a wart removal could result in brain damage.

If you suspect that the brain or spinal injuries that you or a loved one have sustained during medical care were caused by medical negligence, do not wait to speak to a Berks County attorney.

What to Do When Brain and Spinal Injuries Are Caused by Medical Malpractice

In the aftermath of a brain or spinal injury caused by medical malpractice, it’s crucial to take prompt and careful steps. Documenting all relevant medical records, including diagnostic reports, surgical notes, and post-operative care details, can provide critical evidence for your case. Seeking additional opinions from trusted medical professionals specializing in neurology or spinal injuries can strengthen your position. Engaging a reputable legal team with experience in handling medical malpractice cases is important. They can provide the necessary guidance and support during this challenging time, helping you navigate the legal complexities while focusing on your recovery and well-being.

Damages Recoverable in a Brain and Spinal Injuries Case

If your brain and spinal injuries were indeed caused by medical malpractice, you may be able to receive the following damages from your case:

  • Medical Expenses: Covering the costs of medical treatments, surgeries, rehabilitation, and any other necessary healthcare expenses related to the brain and spinal injuries.
  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation for the physical pain, emotional distress, and mental anguish endured due to the injuries caused by medical malpractice.
  • Loss of Earning Capacity: If the injuries impact your ability to work and earn a living, you may be entitled to compensation for the loss of future income and earning capacity.
