Medical Negligence Lawyers For Brain Injuries

Brain injury is not always the result of a traumatic accident such as a car crash or construction site fall. Such injuries can be caused by many other circumstances, including medical errors. Patients in hospitals suffer brain damage because of ischemia or hypoxic injury (lack of oxygen to the brain) resulting from anesthesia errors and other medical mistakes.

Contact an Ohio medical malpractice lawyer if you or a family member suffered serious brain injury while being treated by a healthcare provider.

Blood Clots Because Of Anesthesiologist Errors

An anesthesiologist's failure to monitor a patient, allowing a blood pressure or heart rate to go too low, or the sudden development of a blood clot or pulmonary embolism may result in oxygen deprivation — and brain damage. In the worst type of case, a patient who came to a hospital for a routine operation such as a hysterectomy may end up severely brain damaged and unable to care for herself.

Blood Clots Caused By Falls

Brain injury attributable to healthcare negligence may also be the result of head trauma caused by preventable falls — such as a fall to the floor by someone in a panic attack when coming out of anesthesia. Another example is a misdiagnosis that leads to brain damage after a patient seeks medical treatment for a heart attack or stroke.
