Hundreds of Millions of Dollars Recovered
Medical professionals are expected to maintain a high degree of care and attention when treating patients. We trust them with our health, our well-being, and our lives. But when your doctor or healthcare professional is negligent and fails to act competently when administering care to you, you have the right to seek justice and compensation.
Medical malpractice can cause brain injuries through:
- Medication errors and overdoses
- Surgical errors during brain operations
- Infections in the brain from surgery
- Failure to diagnose stroke or aneurysm
- Birth injuries during labor and delivery
Victims of traumatic brain injuries will most likely require a lifetime of medical care and treatment. We sympathize with your situation, and we are ready to put our 25 years of experience in medical malpractice law to help you and your family find a fair legal remedy.
Symptoms of Brain Injuries
Since the brain is the body's main center for cognition and sensory processing, any sort of damage to this organ can have life-altering consequences. Even relatively mild trauma to the brain can cause a person to suffer debilitating symptoms if left untreated. Symptoms of a brain injury can remain dormant and worsen over time, making it imperative for anyone who experiences the following symptoms to seek medical attention as soon as possible.
The following are all symptoms of mild brain damage:
- Temporary loss of consciousness
- Dizziness and nausea
- Ringing in the ears
- Difficulty concentrating
- Sensitivity to lights and sounds
- Chronic headaches
In particularly serious cases where a person suffers a fractured skull or if a foreign object enters the brain tissue, this is known as a traumatic brain injury (TBI). TBIs often result in permanent disability and require a person to enlist round-the-clock care after their accident, robbing them of their ability to work and function normally.
A TBI can result in the following effects:
- Short- and long-term memory loss
- Difficulty communicating
- Loss of motor skills
- Coma or vegetative state
- Convulsions and seizures
How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?
Personal injury claims in Weston are subject to a statute of limitations, or a window of time in which a person is permitted to seek legal action. If this time limit expires, a person will lose their right to seek compensation. If you believe your brain injury was the result of a botched surgery or other form of medical malpractice, you must file a claim within two years of your injury or discovery of harm.
Claims surrounding the wrongful death of a loved one are also subject to a two-year statute of limitations. Since gathering evidence and filing the necessary paperwork can potentially take months to complete, it is imperative that you contact our firm as soon as possible if you are looking to file a claim.
