Helping Your Family With Life After A Brain Injury
Brain injuries are among the most devastating injuries a person can ever suffer. Any kind of damage to the brain can result in serious long-term and sometimes permanent complications, including memory loss, trouble with motor skills and speech, mood swings, and many others. When these injuries happen in accidents caused by the negligence of a medical professional, victims have the right to be fully compensated for their losses.
These are complex cases that require the attention of a dedicated attorney. If you or a loved one is living with the effects of a serious brain injury because of a medical professional’s error, having a skilled legal team behind you can help ensure that your interests are protected.
Strong Advocates For Brain Injury Victims
At Donovan O'Connor & Dodig, LLP, our lawyers understand the impact a brain injury can have on a victim’s opportunity for a normal, productive life. When you hire our firm, we pursue compensation for all of the losses you have suffered as a result of the brain injury, including medical care, future care, loss of earning capacity, loss of life’s enjoyment and other considerations.
We represent clients in a variety of brain injury cases that arise due to medical negligence, including the following:
- Failure to diagnose brain trauma
- Failure to diagnose a subdural hematoma
- Failure to diagnose an aneurysm
- Surgical errors resulting in brain injuries
- Failure to diagnose hydrocephalus
Hydrocephalus And Other Birth-Related Brain Injuries
We represent clients in all types of infant brain damage claims, including those related to improper or delayed delivery resulting in lack of oxygen to the brain.
Hydrocephalus, also known as water on the brain, is a condition that can come about due to the buildup of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) around the brain. The fluid can create pressure on the brain that can eventually lead to severe brain damage. This damage can be prevented with prompt diagnosis and treatment. It is the medical team’s responsibility to recognize hydrocephalus and take appropriate steps to clear the fluid before it does any harm.
One of the primary focuses of our brain injury practice is on birth-related cases. Brain injuries are among the most common types of birth injury cases we handle.
