Most of us rely on medical care when we believe something may be wrong or if an emergency situation occurs. We believe that the doctors, nurses, surgeons, pharmacists, and other health care professionals will treat and save us, and certainly not cause further problems or even fatal outcomes. But sometimes, a physician error occurs that can have a horrific result – such as a traumatic brain injury.
Any negligence or medical malpractice in New Orleans that leads to a brain injury should be compensated. Practitioners responsible for such an outcome should be held accountable for two primary reasons: to help ease the pain and suffering of the victims and to bring to light the circumstances of the case to deter further instances.
For example, if a patient receives insufficient oxygen during a procedure, this may lead to a brain trauma that causes a permanent disability and significant lifestyle changes for both him or her and the individual's loved ones. Suffering a brain trauma often requires long-term care that the family must pay for in the aftermath of the injury.
In the event that you or someone close to you has suffered this unfortunate fate, it can be very worthwhile to seek the professional guidance of skillful lawyers like those at The Bowling Law Firm. We can help you argue your case for possible compensation that could cover the cost of medical expenses and ease some of your worries and helpless feelings in the face of a catastrophic event.
Our team deals with a variety of cases, including brain injuries, whether they have occurred in hospitals or nursing home facilities or as a result of medication errors or misdiagnoses.
