Brain Trauma Caused by Medical Malpractice

Posted by Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA on Aug 30, 2018 5:57:00 PM

We trust hospitals and doctors with our lives.  When providing proper care, their decisions have the power to heal and to save.  But when they ignore their duty and act negligently, the consequences can be disastrous—even fatal.

Medical malpractice is a major cause of brain trauma, including both direct injuries and injuries occurring through blood and oxygen deprivation.  Injuries can be attributed to the negligence of doctors, surgeons, supporting staff, and even facility administrators and policies. 

If you or your loved one suffer brain trauma or other injury as the result of negligent medical treatment, you need the help of an experienced medical malpractice attorney.  Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA’s team of injury lawyers can help you and your family hold dangerous and negligent medical professionals responsible.
