One of the most complex malpractice situations that our medical malpractice attorneys in Maryland handle is that of a traumatic brain injury. What makes this even more difficult is that you may not even notice the effects immediately, instead they manifest sometime after the event because you cannot see the tissue of the brain to notice something is wrong.
Every surgery you undergo has the potential for negligence malpractice and error, but few procedures are as high-risk as those that involve or are close to the brain. There will occasionally be circumstances that absolutely require operation on or near the brain. It is extremely important that the medical staff should be held to the highest level of professionalism and care.
The resulting costs associated with a traumatic brain injury are incredible, and it is estimated that in any given year 2% of all patients will suffer such an injury. Only 2% of those patients will ever seek the help of medical malpractice attorney in order to receive compensation for their pain and anguish.
If you are injured in such a case, do not be one of the many who does not seek out help for their injuries. It may be that very compensation is the only thing you will have in order to pay for the help you need to get better.
We urge you to contact one of our medical malpractice attorneys in Maryland at the Snyder Litigation team if you or a loved one has suffered from brain injury. We can help you decide the best way to pursue compensation and damages which include, but are not limited to the cost of medical expenses, medications, hospital and surgeon fees, lost earnings, and possibly lost wages and court fees that the experience will undoubtedly incur.
