Brain Injuries Caused by Negligence and Malpractice
The attorneys at Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder represent clients whose brain and head injuries were caused by the negligence of others. We aggressively pursue compensation for people with serious head and brain injuries caused by medical malpractice, vehicle crashes and other types of accidents, assault, and defective products.
Most brain injuries are caused either by trauma, such as a blow to the head, or by lack of oxygen to the brain.
Types of Brain Injury
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a head injury that occurs when the head is struck by or against another object. Car accidents, recreational accidents, accidents at nursing homes, or construction accidents can all result in traumatic brain injuries. If a medical professional fails to properly assess a patient for a brain injury, the result can be devastating.
When the brain does not receive enough oxygen, a hypoxic brain injury is the result. Total lack of oxygen to the brain causes an anoxic brain injury. These types of brain injuries can be caused by anything from a birth injury to an anesthesia error to a swimming pool accident.
Anything that causes bleeding within the brain can result in permanent brain damage. Our attorneys have represented clients in many types of brain injury cases, including cases involving emergency room doctors' failure to diagnose the symptoms of cerebral aneurysm, a widening of an artery in the brain. The patients were sent home. The aneurysms later ruptured, and the patients either died or suffered serious brain damage.
Complex Legal and Medical Issues
Because of our decades of experience in medical malpractice and personal injury cases, our law firm has the experience required to achieve positive results for clients in these challenging cases. We understand the complex medical issues involved in diagnosing and treating brain injuries. And we are skilled at communicating to juries the full extent of damages our clients have endured.
If you or a family member has suffered a brain injury, please contact our law firm as soon as possible to arrange a free consultation and case evaluation. From offices in Bridgeport, Stamford, Danbury and New Haven, Connecticut, our personal injury and medical malpractice lawyers represent clients throughout the state.
