We often visit healthcare service providers hoping that they will bring our health problems to an end. It may be through carrying out regular diagnoses, surgery, or even a normal drug prescription. But the moment doctors, nurses or surgeons fail to maintain the medical standards while we are under their care, and we suffer more injuries or worse as a result, they can be held liable for their actions in a court of law. If you have suffered more complications such as a brain injury due to a hospital’s negligence, our Pearland brain injury lawyers can help you recover for the injuries sustained.
As expected, the aftermath of a brain injury is often disastrous, especially to the family members close to the victim. Apart from the heavy financial burden imposed upon them, they must carry the heavy responsibility of looking after the injured. This may include feeding them, helping them maintain body cleanliness, and carrying out normal activities. Our Pearland brain injury lawyers understand these setbacks, and more so the moral and psychological disturbance that comes with it.
In any personal injury case, there is no better result to such mental and financial trauma than having the financial burden lifted. Apart from using the money to purchase prescribed drugs and carrying out regular medical assessments, a brain injury settlement can be effectively used to hire the services of a qualified Pearland nurse to take care and look after the brain injury victim at home. This can go a long way in restoring normalcy in the injured’s life.
How Can a Brain Injury Occur?
There are many ways in which a brain injury can occur. Many brain injury cases occur as a result of trauma to the head. Some of these injuries are accidentally self-inflicted, while others result because of another’s negligence.
Additionally, some cases can occur as a result of medical malpractice and negligence. It may be from a doctor, surgeon, or even a nurse. Unfortunately, some of the worst brain injury cases have occurred during surgery.
These surgeries do not necessarily have to be brain surgery. A procedure to rectifying an error in the skull may result in a brain injury if the doctor fails to follow proper medical standards. The effects of the brain injury may be noticed shortly after the surgery, or much later after the surgery has finished.
Who Will Be Held Accountable For a Brain Injury Case?
Proving liability in a brain injury can be daunting given the expansive nature of proving injuries that cannot be seen. For this reason, you and your Pearland brain injury lawyer will be expected to prove that more likely than not, the brain injuries sustained were as a result someone else’s negligence.
There are many parties that can be held liable for brain injuries. For example, a driver who fails to pay attention in the road could cause a crash that results in a brain injury. The other common cause is from doctors or hospital management.
Some doctors have been blamed for not adhering to existing medical care standards while operating on their patients. Some doctors have operated on a patient while using a mobile phone or while attending to other duties. Others do not following the proper medical procedures. A Pearland brain injury lawyer can help you establish fault by expounding on all possible avenues and help you get provde the injuries sustained while under their care.
On the other hand, a Pearland hospital can be directly held responsible for your injuries if your Pearland brain injury lawyer establishes fault by proving that some of the administration’s actions contributed to your injuries. It may be through hiring incompetent medical practitioners, purchasing defective medical equipment and drugs, or through not following standard procedures for patient treatment. If this is the case, your attorney will prepare all evidence within reach to hold them accountable.
