Negligent medical care results in thousands of brain injuries

| Dec 31, 2019 | brain injuries

The brain is one of the most important yet most delicate organs in the human body. Any injury to this vital organ can have permanent ramifications for victims. Brain injuries are some of the most debilitating types of injuries a person can suffer. When these injuries happen as a result of negligence, victims — including surviving families of deceased victims — in Delaware can pursue legal action.

A man in another state filed a lawsuit claiming that he suffered permanent brain injuries due to negligence. According to the lawsuit, the man visited a hospital with complaints of headaches. The lawsuit asserted that the man underwent several tests, including a CT scan. Apparently, the man had a history of head injuries with loss of consciousness.

However, the man was allegedly discharged within hours of arriving at the hospital. The claim asserts that the man had an ongoing brain bleed but was discharged anyway. The man alleges that he suffered severe brain damage as a result of the failure of his doctors to recognize the bleeding in his brain. He seeks monetary damages for his injuries as well as pain and suffering. 

Unfortunately, negligence during medical care is responsible for thousands of people suffering brain injuries every year in the United States. In Delaware, those who have suffered brain injuries as the result of the negligence of another party may want to consider discussions with an experienced legal representative. A successfully litigated lawsuit could potentially result in much-needed compensation that could help victims and families pay medical expenses and recover other documented financial losses.
