Brain Injury From Surgery in Military Hospital
Brain injuries caused by medical negligence or medical mistake are particularly devastating. They can have a profound and permanent impact upon the life of the individual harmed, as well as on the person’s family.
Brain injuries can affect a person in many different ways. Brain injury can cause physical mobility issues, such as paralysis. Brain injury can affect the cognitive ability of an injured individual so he or she may no longer be capable of certain types of mental activities. Brain injury can also affect the emotional aspects of a person, such that they are no longer able to control their emotions or react appropriately to everyday events.
Causes of Brain Injury in Medical Negligence Cases
There are a number of ways in which a brain injury may occur in a medical setting. During surgery, an anesthesiologist may fail to deliver sufficient oxygen to the patient, which can result in the brain being damaged. Brain damage can also result if a medical mistake is made, such as an action that disrupts blood flow to the brain. Brain damage can also result from injury directly to the brain in the course of brain surgery.
When Brain Injury Occurs Due To Medical Negligence, Our Firm Fights Back
When brain injury occurs at a military healthcare facility, our firm represents the injured and their families in seeking just compensation for the injuries and damages suffered. We represent clients on a contingency fee basis, which means that we are not owed any fees unless and until we recover for our clients. We work tirelessly on their behalf to advance their case and to seek to hold accountable those responsible for causing injury.
In the case of those injured at a military healthcare facility, we bring suit on behalf of our clients under the Federal Tort Claims Act (FTCA). This Act allows us to sue the United States government for the actions of its employees, including doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers.
