Suffering from a brain injury can have devastating effects upon both the patient and their families. Often, very specific care requirements need to be put into place and lives will never be the same again.
Some brain injuries are caused as a result of medical negligence, for instance – as a result of a birthing injury or a failure to identify and treat a stroke. Other common medical negligence claims include failure to diagnose brain cancers and haemorrhages, starvation of oxygen during surgery and infections including sepsis. The earlier a diagnosis is made and treatment implemented, the better prospects of recovery the patient has.
Our specialist team will discuss with you the possibility of pursuing a claim for both compensation for pain and suffering endured, together with recoverability of rehabilitation and care costs, the cost of adaptations to the home and any possible loss of earnings claim that may be available to you. Plus many more different types of losses.
