New Hampshire Brain Injury Lawyer
Because of the central role the brain plays in virtually every aspect of human functioning, even a minor amount of damage to the brain can have devastating consequences for injury victims and their families. Therefore, it is essential that scrupulous care be taken when treating patients during procedures in which brain damage is a possibility, particularly during surgical procedures involving anesthesia. Sadly, this appropriate care is not always provided, leaving a patient with a traumatic brain injury.
Brain injuries caused by medical malpractice can have devastating consequences. In fact, as our team at Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, knows, many patients in New Hampshire who suffer from brain injuries due to a medical professional’s negligence find themselves facing severe physical consequences, including permanent disabilities, emotional trauma, and debilitating financial burdens. Fortunately, patients may be able to recover compensation to help them deal with these and other costs of their injury.
Causes of a Brain Injury
There are a number of different ways in which brain injuries can occur during medical treatment. Some of the most common causes include:
- Lack of oxygen
- Hemorrhage or blood clots
- Blood pressure changes
- Metabolic abnormalities
In all of these circumstances, doctors and other medical professionals need to be held accountable for the consequences their errors or negligence has on the lives of patients.
