Brain injuries are often life changing for an individual and their loved ones.
When a brain injury is caused as a result of medical negligence it can often be traumatic, and it can make things so much harder to come to terms with. We understand that you may be feeling confused and angry about how this could have happened, and feeling as though any suffering could have been avoided had you or your loved one received the right medical care.
We know that receiving compensation will not resolve any suffering that has been caused, nor will it make the situation any easier to accept and move on from. However, compensation can eliminate the financial burden that may have been placed on you as a result of the injury.
Can I make a brain injury claim?
Our team have extensive experience in helping those who have suffered with a brain injury as a result of negligent medical care. No matter how the injury was caused, if you suspect that medical negligence played a part in it, you may be able to make a claim.
Cases that our lawyers have successfully settled have involved:
- failure to detect and treat a stroke
- misdiagnosis of brain cancer
- misdiagnosis of meningitis
- oxygen starvation during surgery.
