Traumatic Brain Injury and Medical Malpractice

Miami & Ft. Lauderdale, Florida

If you suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI) due to the negligent actions of a healthcare professional, you may be entitled to receive compensation through a medical malpractice claim. A traumatic brain injury can have severe consequences, and it is important to hold the negligent medical professional accountable to ensure that you receive the proper care following this devastating injury.
Diagnosing traumatic brain injury is the most critical step in minimizing long-term damage. Treatment may include an induced coma, surgical intervention, or medications to help stabilize your brain.
TBI can take months to show symptoms. Often when there are no obvious symptoms, TBI is not considered when you seek medical service after an accident. However, TBI should always be a consideration in any type of accident where the head was impacted, even if you are not unconscious or showing symptoms. Failure of medical staff to recognize this can be viewed as negligence, and give you cause to file a medical malpractice claim should TBI later be diagnosed.
