There are few injuries as debilitating as those affecting the brain. The amazing complexity of the brain and its interrelation with other bodily organs makes brain health an essential component of overall wellbeing. Although most people associate brain injuries with trauma caused by an impact or blow to the head, many serious injuries to the brain are caused by medical negligence, including preventable infections.
Brain injuries from infection can result in severe impairment of cognitive and physical capability. In cases where a brain injury was caused by medical negligence, compensation is one means to help restore dignity and quality of life. Taylor & Scott Medical Negligence Lawyers have decades of experience winning difficult cases for their clients and achieving maximum potential compensation payouts for those suffering preventable brain injuries from infection.
Medical professionals are expected to provide the highest levels of patient care to minimise medical complications. However, there are occasions when preventable mistakes are made by doctors, specialists, surgeons or other healthcare staff, and compensation for injuries plus additional care is wholly justified. If an infection is untreated or undiscovered, complications can arise that cause significant damage to the brain. Common infections include:
There are many types of infection that can potentially lead to brain damage. Most brain injuries from infection can be avoided by early detection and appropriate treatment. Failure by a medical professional to identify or treat an infection can have devastating results with lifelong medical complications. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury caused by medical negligence, Taylor & Scott Lawyers can help you present a formidable compensation claim case.
Impairments caused by brain injuries can have far reaching impacts that include diminished physical and mental capability, emotional upheaval, reduced quality of life and loss of employment. Medical negligence compensation takes the form of financial and other assistance to cover individual needs, including:
Brain injuries are classified as mild, moderate and severe. For example, a mild concussion injury may only cause temporary ill-effects such as headaches, nausea and confusion. A severe brain injury, on the other hand, can result in permanent physical, cognitive and behavioural disabilities that require ongoing care and attention. Appropriate compensation for a brain injury caused by medical negligence is ascertained with the assistance of medical experts, and in cases where the injury results in permanent disability, compensation should cover all long-term effects to ensure a better quality of life for the victim and their loved ones.
However, claiming adequate compensation can become difficult if the case becomes complex or is disputed. Medical negligence compensation claims are often made against a health organisation or body rather than an individual physician, and it won’t take long for an inexperienced claimant to become out of their depth in dealing with unfamiliar medical and legal terminology. Taylor & Scott Medical Negligence Lawyers bridge the gap with a compassionate and caring service along with an unwavering determination to achieve long-term compensation for their clients.
The first step in any compensation claim is to consult with the experts. With more than a century of case winning experience, Taylor & Scott is a highly regarded legal firm respected by clients, compensation experts, and even opposing legal teams. A free case assessment with a Taylor & Scott Medical Negligence Lawyer will ascertain the viability of your claim and its potential for success. If we believe your claim has merit, we will immediately commence the claim process, relieving you of the burden, and we can even take care of any compensation claim costs on your behalf until the case is won and compensation has been paid to you.
Acquired brain injury is caused by a specific event, and not related to genetic or congenital disorders. An acquired brain injury usually results in long-term physical or psychological impairments. Examples of acquired brain injuries include a traumatic head injury caused by a car accident, or a nontraumatic brain injury caused by medical negligence.
When the brain is damaged due to an acquired brain injury, the person’s life is adversely affected, making a brain injury compensation claim the appropriate course of action. Negligence claim cases can be overwhelming for the sufferer of a brain injury, so it is strongly advised to secure the services of a specialist lawyer to support your claim and guide you through the process.
The first step is to undertake a free, no obligation case assessment with a Taylor & Scott Lawyer. If you or a loved one has suffered a severe and debilitating brain injury as a result of medical negligence, a motor vehicle accident, or any other situation where another person or organisation was at fault, complete compensation is warranted and Taylor & Scott Lawyers will take every opportunity to maximise your claim’s potential. We will guide you through the legal process and offer a service that includes:
Every brain injury compensation claim is different and the amount of compensation you receive will be dependent on your specific circumstances. Once we have established that negligence caused the brain damage, we will advise you of your entitlements. A brain injury can result in severe disabilities and completely derail a person’s future plans, making a substantial settlement payout a very real possibility in some cases.
