How do brain injuries occur?

Every year in Maryland, countless people suffer some form of head injury. Many of these are minor knocks that are not given any more thought. However, others result in long-term health problems and can even lead to permanent disabilities. To make things worse, the effects of a head injury are not always immediately apparent. As such, you may not realize you have acquired a brain injury until some time after the event.

Many brain injuries are caused by an impact to the skull or violent shaking. However, this is not the only way they can occur. It is also common for these injuries to be caused by the deprivation of oxygen to the brain. Brain tumors can also lead to long-term damage to the brain.

As this article on medical malpractice explains, negligence on the part of your doctor or other medical professional can also result in injuries of this nature. For example, a mistake during the administration of anesthesia could pose a risk. Equally, the failure to diagnose an illness that later leads to brain damage could be construed as a form of malpractice.

If you or a loved one have suffered a brain injury as the result of medical malpractice or you have been hurt in any other way because of someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. An attorney can advise you about the options that may be available to you and might be able to help you build your claim. You should not have to bear the costs arising from someone else's mistake. Fortunately, a successful claim may cover some of those costs and help you acquire justice for your injuries.
