Michigan Brain Injury Attorney

Any injury to the brain is a devastating, life-changing event, often resulting in physical disability and neurological impairment.

Initial symptoms of a brain injury can be subtle or profound, and may consist of loss of short term memory, loss of mental orientation, loss of balance and coordination, loss of motor functions, paralysis, vertigo, dizziness, fatigue, mood changes, personality changes, vision defects, seizures, tremors and many more.

Medical mistakes are frequently involved in causing a brain injury to patients, and timely diagnosis and treatment is crucial. Otherwise, the underlying injury can be exacerbated or the patient’s recovery – requiring special care from skilled physicians and specialists – can be severely compromised.

Causes of brain injury due to medical negligence may include:

  • Anesthesia overdose
  • Improper monitoring and observation during surgery
  • Excessive bleeding caused by medical mistakes
  • Failing to properly manage low blood pressure
  • Failing to timely diagnose and treat infection
  • Failing to properly manage low blood sugar
  • Failing to timely diagnose and treat brain tumors
  • Failing to timely diagnose and treat meningitis
  • Excessive medication causing respiratory depression
  • Failing to timely diagnose and treat heart disease
  • Failing to maintain adequate brain perfusion during bypass surgery
  • Negligence during labor or delivery resulting in hypoxia or ischemia causing cerebral palsy in the newborn
