How Do Brain Injuries Happen?
Brain injuries caused by clinical negligence can occur for a variety of reasons, for children, it can be due to a birthing injury, for others it can be down to a delay in diagnosing a traumatic brain injury, whilst others are due to anaesthetic complications during surgery. We cover these areas, and many others, including cerebral palsy.
Medical care in the UK is usually of a very high technical standard and so a brain injury caused by a medical error can be quite rare. Unfortunately, our healthcare system is both overworked and underfunded; as such mistakes can, and do occur. Even so, these failings cannot be excused. Where brain injuries are inflicted, victims can be afflicted with debilitating complications; motor problems, impaired cognitive function… All of which can drastically reduce a patient’s quality of life, creating a need for brain injury rehabilitation.
