A brain injury of any type can be catastrophic for both the affected party and their family. Depending upon the severity of the condition, life after injury may never be the same. If the brain injury is due to medical incompetence, or clinical malpractice, a brain injury claim can be considered.

Our specialist medical negligence Solicitors have settled many medical negligence compensation claims for those that have suffered due to an avoidable brain injury.

Not all brain injuries are caused by negligent medical treatment; there are inherent risks associated with some surgical procedures which can result in complications occurring. But if a patient (or their family member) feels that the treating Doctors or Surgeons have been negligent, resulting in a brain injury, we may be able to assist you to bring a claim.

Causes of brain injury

Severe brain injury can result in one of two ways: traumatic, and non-traumatic.

Some of the causes of non-traumatic brain injury can be:

  • Vascular problems — strokes causing clots in the brain, cerebral haemorrhage (bleeding in the area of the brain), subarachnoid haemorrhage (burst aneurysm)
  • Brain tumours, including cancer
  • Hypoxia, hypoglycaemia, hyperpyrexia
  • Meningitis, tuberculosis, cerebral abscess, malaria, encephalitis
  • RICP
  • Misdiagnosis of a condition, leading to brain injury and cognitive dysfunction

If you have been diagnosed as having traumatic brain injury, then some sort of external force will have caused injury to the brain.

No matter whether your problem is one of these or something else, as specialist medical negligence Solicitors, we can assist you if you have been given an incorrect or delayed diagnosis or treatment.

Effects of brain injury

Where brain injuries are concerned, the effects can be dramatic or fairly slight. Either way, the patient’s way of life and quality of living can be adversely impacted. Depending on the sort of brain injury involved, the result upon the affected party can consist of various symptoms, such as:

  • Weakness in movement or loss of sensation
  • Memory loss
  • Total vegetative state
  • Problems with vision, taste, smell, hearing
  • Personality and behavioural changes
  • Loss of movement

Because we have access to an expert panel of neurological and neurosurgical professionals, no matter the result of the brain injury, we can deal with your compensation claim which has materialised due to negligence or medical errors.

Compensation when it matters

Whether the brain injury is due to a failure to diagnose correctly, surgical errors, failure to obtain proper consent, mistakes with anaesthetic or something else, our expert medical team will go all out to obtain the necessary and valuable compensation for you.

We will take into account every aspect of the affected patient’s life that has been damaged, destroyed or lessened in value. Adequate brain injury compensation can help with loss of earnings, nursing and care facilities, adaptations to the home environment, transport requirements, specialist schooling and much more.

By allowing us to deal with your brain injury or your loved one’s compensation claim we can go a long way towards helping you to get back some adequate quality of life.
