Brain damage can be caused by many different types of injury. When we think of brain damage we usually think it is caused by a blow to the head. And even though that is correct in a lot of cases, it is not true in all. Just as well, the brain damage that is caused by a blow to the head may be minimized by quick medical response as well as correct and concise professional medical care and treatment for the obvious injuries as well as the underlying injuries. Brain damage can also be caused by a “birth defect” caused by a medical error during delivery, a lack of oxygen, pharmaceutical administration, medical treatment, care or lack thereof. The vast amount of damage that can be done to the brain can come from so very many different sources. But when we seek medical attention and care, we have an expectation that the medical staff is doing everything they can to provide a safe and secure place for the best possible care and treatment for our medical condition no matter how obvious, minor or major it may appear. And we trust that they have the education, training and skills to apply good sound medical practice and locate even the issues that may not appear so obvious. We as a society expect the best from our doctors and medical staff, and if we feel that everything possible so ensure safe and thorough medical exam and treatment was not taken then we may have to consider contacting a medical malpractice lawyer. Medical malpractice lawyers specialize in recognition of malpractice care and treatment, and will be able to interview, assess, advise and assist you in protecting your patient rights.
