Brain injuries can result from a variety of accidents. For example, slips and falls on unsafe premises and motor vehicle crashes are common culprits. Yet injuries could also happen under a doctor’s care. Medication interactions from improper prescriptions could result in brain damage, as could hypoxia, the deprivation of oxygen to the brain.
Unfortunately, another individual’s negligence is often a common theme among brain injury victims. A recent article profiled a man who had suffered a birth injury that left him with cerebral palsy. The man confessed that caring for his condition sometimes challenged his mother, and how greater financial resources likely would have eased that burden. At the time, however, his family did not realize that compensation could be sought via a personal injury or medical malpractice lawsuit.
