Help And Hope For Brain Injury Sufferers
A 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.
At the Law Offices of Gary Osborne & Associates, our attorneys have been investigating and litigating medical malpractice cases in Ohio for more than 30 years.

Brain Damage Due To Anesthesia Errors
An anesthesiologist’s failure to monitor a patient, allowing their 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 himself or herself.
Brain Injuries Caused By Falls
Brain injury attributable to health care 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.
