Brain Injuries Archives

When medical negligence leads to brain injury

People who suffer brain injuries often experience a momentous change in their daily lives. If you have suffered a brain injury, you might be having difficulty returning to everyday tasks such as employment or even your favorite hobby. Depending on the severity of your injury, you could be facing hurdles in life that may take years to overcome.

A physician error diagnosing heart attack or stroke can be deadly

Given the number of stories in which medical errors are discussed and people are seriously injured or die as a result, it is no surprise by now that doctors are not perfect. However, the scope of the mistakes they can make run the gamut between somewhat innocuous and fatal.

Problems during birth process may lead to infant brain injuries

The birth of a baby is often a celebrated time in the life of Houston parents. However, children, and especially infants, present challenges to the lives of those whose families they join, especially when their arrival is marred by birth injuries.

Failing to diagnose a condition can be deadly

There are countless ways a brain injury can occur. In some cases, the brain can be injured during a medical operation gone awry. Sometimes it may be a surgical error that causes limited blood flow or oxygen to the brain. Or it may be due to an issue during a pregnancy or birth. Or perhaps it was due to nurses giving the wrong drugs to a patient. The ways this can happen are nearly limitless.

Hope for brain injury victims after story of TBI recovery

Turning on the nightly news, more often than not, can leave a viewer depressed. It often seems that viewers are bombarded with story after story involving death, violence, injuries and bad things going on with the world. While it is of course important to recognize all the bad things that do go on, it can be refreshing to hear a good story now and then.

Brain injury victims are often especially vulnerable

The human brain is considered by many scientists and medical professionals to be the most complex object known to man. In the human body, its importance is unparalleled. Without a functioning brain, a person will die. When the brain is damaged and not fully functioning, a person may experience any number of different debilitating symptoms that limit a person's ability to function properly.

A concussion needs immediate attention

Many Houston residents have children involved in sports. From a very early age, kids join soccer and basketball league, play football, and lots of other sports. In recent years, a focus on kids getting concussions has taken center stage. A recent article in the journal Pediatrics highlights the importance of removing kids who have concussions and damage to the brain from the field immediately.

Understanding the serious nature of traumatic brain injuries

Brain injuries are one of the most difficult types of injuries victims and families have to cope with following a car accident or other type of traumatic accident. Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) contribute to approximately 30 percent of all injury-related deaths. Each day in the United States, 138 victims die from injuries that include TBIs. Symptoms and signs of a TBI can include impaired thinking and memory; impaired movement or sensation, including vision and hearing; and impaired emotional function which can include personality disruptions and depression.
