Experiencing a brain or head injury is very traumatic, and the experience can be made even worse if you are the victim of medical negligence. Of course, most patients who receive medical care for a head or brain injury will be given the highest possible standards of care by their medical team.
However, medical negligence does occur from time to time. If you or someone close to you has experience medical negligence relating to a brain or head injury, you should speak to a specialist solicitor as soon as possible. The majority of personal injury claims need to be made within 3 years of you becoming aware of the negligence. There are some exceptions made under the 1980 Limitations Act for people who are mentally disabled and those aged under 18, but it is still best to speak to a medical negligence solicitor as soon as you become aware of the problem.
Common types of medical negligence claim relating to brain and head injuries
These can include:
•Use of incorrect method or procedure during brain surgery
• Incorrect amount of anaesthetic used while the patient is in brain surgery
• A lack in care either pre or post operation
• Misdiagnosis of brain or head injury following an accident or head pains
• Misdiagnosis of an haemorrhage, due to incorrect procedures being carried out or symptoms being missed on scans and tests
