Boxer's brain injuries result in lifelong dependency and bills

Any Delaware residents that have ever boxed or viewed a match are aware that injuries are to be expected. For the protection of boxers, medical professionals are available at official matches to provide evaluation and treatment of injuries. Unfortunately, one boxer in another state suffered severe brain injuries, and he is expected to need around-the-clock care for the rest of his life. His parents believe that had the physician properly evaluated their son during his match, his injuries would not be as extensive. They have a filed a lawsuit against the physician.

Family recieves $8 million for brain injuries after birth

It is unfortunate when Delaware patients suffer as a result of a medical professional's negligence. Inaction or a wrong decision can result in a lifetime of medical treatment, expenses, lost quality of life and/or death. Recently in a neighboring state, a couple was awarded an $8 million monetary settlement for the brain injuries their child suffered that may have resulted or compounded by one physician's delayed action.

brain injuries may result in emotional and financial loss

When people in Delaware consent to undergo surgery, they do it understanding there are risks involved. Although patients do agree to potential risks, they may suffer injury or even death if an acceptable standard of care is not provided, When care is not adequate, infection, brain injuries, other injuries and/or death may occur. In another state, a family is claiming an anthologist's inadequate care resulted in their loved one's death.

Man receives settlement from Home Depot for brain injuries

Do-it-yourself projects and stores that carry the necessary supplies have become very popular in Delaware and all over the country. While tackling home projects may have some personal risks, shopping in the stores is the last place a person may expect to be injured. Sadly, a man in another state suffered unexpected debilitating brain injuries as he shopped at his local Home Depot. He anticipates his lifetime medical care for his injuries to total around $8 million.

Surgeon's malpractice results in man's severe brain injuries

At the age of 21, many young adults in Delaware are in college, getting jobs, dating and enjoying their youth in various ways. Sadly, after one man's heart surgery, he was destined only to spend the rest of his life being cared for by his family. His case is not unlike others where mistakes are made during surgery that lead to disabilities, brain injuries, unexpected recovery and even death.

Common types of brain injuries

brain injuries are all too common in today's world. Car accidents, sports and even some medical treatment can leave you with an injury that affects the rest of your life. Depending on the amount of force and the type of force that impacts the head, the brain can receive several types of injury. Some are grave and serious while others can be treated quickly, but most brain injuries require immediate medical attention so there is no further damage. Knowing what to watch for and how brain injuries may be categorized can help you determine when an injury has occurred.

Motorcyclists are a high risk group for brain injuries in crashes

Delaware motorcyclists do not enjoy the same protections as those in passenger vehicles. This increases their risk of brain injuries if they are involved in a crash. If an accident was caused by another motorist, victims might be able to receive restitution to help with the financial burdens that dealing with these and other injuries can cause.

Were baby's brain injuries caused by medical negligence?

When a Delaware woman is expecting a child, any change in her health or the movement of the baby might cause panic. Many obstetricians' offices more than likely field questions daily from pregnant mothers who are unsure whether what they are feeling, or are not feeling, could mean a problem with the baby. Not every concern should require a visit to the hospital, but if some issues are not investigated, the baby could end up with brain injuries or some other lifelong malady. There is sometimes a fine line between an overreacting mother and medical negligence when medical personnel ignore complaints and concerns.

Woman blames brain injuries on failure to diagnose

Many Delaware residents suffer from severe headaches and migraines without any underlying brain issues. However, sometimes, those headaches are an indication of a larger problem. If a doctor fails to take the appropriate steps to ensure that a proper diagnosis is made, permanent brain injuries can occur. This is what one out-of-state woman said happened to her.

Permanent brain injuries can result from cerebral hypoxia

Without oxygen, damage will be done to the body. The brain could suffer the most harm if a Delaware resident is denied oxygen for an extended period. Permanent brain injuries can result from a condition called cerebral hypoxia, which in the simplest terms means that the brain is not getting the oxygen it needs.
