Understanding Possible Causes Of A Coma

One of the most common causes of a coma is surgical errors or complications. In these cases, the patient goes in for surgery and does not wake up when it is over. If this has happened to your loved one, we will investigate and assess the potential liability of the surgeon and the hospital. Comas in these situations are often the result of brain injury due to:

  • Possible anesthesia errors
  • Lack of oxygen to the brain
  • Restricted blood flow during the operation

In addition to medical malpractice, a coma can result from any number of traumatic events. Some of the possibilities are:

If and when the victim comes out of the coma, the family will need to pay for extensive therapy and medical treatment. We will diligently work to recover full and fair compensation from the responsible party to cover these kinds of expenses. We will pursue compensation for medical bills, future medical care, and past and future lost wages. The attorneys at The Law Offices of Gary Osborne & Associates are dedicated to providing compassionate, empathetic service and efficient, successful legal representation.
