Why You Need Help When Medical Malpractice Causes A Brain Injury
We know that brain injuries are often devastating and life-changing for the patient and his or her family. You will need financial compensation to cover the cost of extensive medical care that may last a lifetime. In addition, you’ll need compensation for lost wages and other economic damages. We can also help you seek compensation for the pain, suffering, disability and diminished quality of life that often results from a brain injury.
In these cases, you will need help from an attorney to fight the hospital. You and your family can count on the experienced lawyers at Wise Morrissey, LLC in Chicago. We have won significant settlements and verdicts to compensate individuals and their families for brain damage caused by medical malpractice. With our knowledge of medical procedures and standards, we understand how to prove that malpractice occurred. We also have the investigation and litigation skills to meet the standard of proof in brain injury claims. Speak with us at 312-985-0930 to learn more.
Brain injuries caused by medical negligence most often occur from lack of oxygen, or anesthesia or surgical errors. The severity of the injury determines how much compensation you need. People with mild brain injuries may require years of medical treatment and physical therapy, but may eventually recover some or all of their functionality.
Moderate or severe brain injuries will leave the patient with permanent deficits. In the most severe cases, the patient may be in a vegetative state or coma. Brain injuries can also be fatal. We represent Illinois families who lose loved ones to wrongful death.
