Brain Injuries Caused by Medical Malpractice

Brain injuries can be the result of medical malpractice. We once handled a medical malpractice/brain injury case in which the hospital failed to properly administer oxygen or intubate and give oxygen to a 54-year-old woman. The lack of oxygen resulted in permanent brain damage, and we were able to secure a $55.4 million verdict – the largest medical malpractice verdict in the history of Illinois.

Brain injuries are also a common result of medical negligence during labor or delivery. Lack of oxygen (hypoxia) can cause infant brain damage, leading to conditions like cerebral palsy.

Brain Injuries Caused by Trauma

Brain injuries can also be caused by blunt force trauma to the head. This is common in motor vehicle accidents and on-the-job accidents in particular. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the leading cause of traumatic brain injury in the United States is falls, comprising 28% of all accidents. Motor vehicles comprise about 20% of all TBIs.

Suing Over Brain Damage

If you or someone you love sustained any degree of brain damage as a result of an act of negligence, wrongdoing, or strict liability, you may be able to file a claim. Some examples of cases where an injury lawsuit may be appropriate include:

  • Victim sustained a traumatic brain injury in a car accident caused by a drunk driver
  • Infant child sustained brain damage during delivery
  • Construction worker hit in the head by a falling object

If you believe that you may have cause for a brain injury claim, we invite you to contact an attorney at our firm today.

Common Brain Injury Questions

  • What is a Brain Injury?

    A: A brain injury (also known as a “traumatic brain injury” or “TBI”) is any trauma sustained by the brain. There are many types of brain injuries, many are caused by blunt-force trauma to the skull. These injuries range from mild to severe and include concussions and may lead to lasting medical complications for the victim.

  • What are Some Symptoms of a Brain Injury?

    A: Brain injury symptoms can be difficult to diagnose because they are far-reaching and are not always solely indicative of a TBI. Common symptoms include difficulty concentrating, memory loss, confusion, mood swings, and uncharacteristic behavior such as impulsiveness.

  • Can You Sue for a Brain Injury?

    A: Yes. If another party is responsible for your injury or the injury of your loved one, you may be entitled to financial compensation for medical expenses, ongoing medical care, and more.
