Negligent hospital staff is more often responsible for causing brain injuries in patients than you may think. Unfortunately, as you may know, brain injuries are often severe and permanent. If you or a loved one has sustained a brain injury due to negligence at a hospital or other medical facility, please keep reading, then contact an experienced Houston, Texas brain injury lawyer as soon as possible.
How might a patient suffer a brain injury at a hospital in Texas?
Brain injuries in a hospital setting often stem from oxygen deprivation but can result from a wide range of mistakes and causes. That said, some medical errors are more commonly responsible for brain injuries in hospitals, including anesthesia errors, complications during brain surgery, failure to diagnose certain brain injuries (like concussions), failing to treat hypertension, medication errors, and more.
What are the effects of brain damage sustained in a hospital setting?
Every patient’s symptoms will manifest in different ways, making it challenging to determine what effects one may feel in the wake of a brain injury. That said, there are certain symptoms that are more common than others, including emotional or behavioral issues, memory loss, mood swings, seizures, and cognitive or physical impairment.
While these effects may be short-term or long-term, many patients do not have the possibility of a full recovery. Because of this, if you or a loved one has incurred a brain injury due to a careless physician of any kind, you should strongly consider retaining the services of a seasoned medical malpractice attorney who can assess the circumstances of the brain injury and determine the party responsible.
