Medical Negligence

Serious Injury

When any medical procedure goes wrong and you are let down by a medical professional, it can have a huge impact on your life. When that negligence involves neurological treatment, the effects of that mistake can be devastating.

Neurological injury includes all injuries of the central nervous system, most commonly the brain or the spine. Neurological treatment requires medical professionals to be extremely skilled as surgery and treatment is often very intricate and complex. However, mistakes do happen and are often life changing in their severity.

Types of neurological injuries include:

  • Brain injury due to lack of oxygen to the brain
  • Stroke/blood clot to brain or elsewhere
  • Failure to diagnoses infection, such as meningitis
  • Spinal cord injury (for example, following surgery)
  • Paralysis or lack of function

All of these injuries can result in life-altering consequences. You and your family’s requirements and needs may change and it can turn your world upside down.
