Common Causes of Brain Damage Medical Malpractice

In Houston, there are a number of more commonly occurring medical care and treatment tragedies that result in brain injuries:

  • Birth injury
  • Anesthesia error
  • Medication error
  • Untreated brain infections
  • Heart attack misdiagnosis
  • Stroke misdiagnosis

Each day across the country, 700 people die as the result of medical errors. Hundreds of thousands of people are injured annually because of medical negligence, oftentimes seriously so. 10 percent of all deaths in the United States arise from medical malpractice. Medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the country. An alarming percentage of medical malpractice cases involve innocent patients who suffer brain injuries at the hands of their doctors, including catastrophic brain damage. Every year, innumerable people lose their lives because of brain damage arising from medical malpractice.

Any one of these causes of brain injuries has the propensity to result in permanent brain damage. The end result can be a significant, if not total, impairment of a person’s ability to fully live his or her life. In some cases, a disability may resolve over time. However, in a good many cases, a person ends up permanently and profoundly disabled.

Medical Malpractice and Birth Brain Injuries

Sadly, a considerable number of brain injuries are associated with the birth of a child. What should be one of the happiest of moments can end up becoming a calamity for a newborn child and parents alike. The cold, hard reality is that nearly 160,000 birth brain injuries each year could have been – should have been – avoided. But for the negligence of a physician or some other healthcare provider, a newborn baby would not have suffered a brain injury, including catastrophic brain damage.

Tracking birth brain injuries reveals that there is about a half dozen events that underly most instances of newborn birth brain damage:

  • Failure to diagnose and treat a medical issue with the mother during pregnancy or at the time of childbirth
  • Administration of improper medications during pregnancy or at the time of childbirth
  • Failure to monitor properly a fetus
  • Failure to respond appropriately to fetal distress
  • Failure to perform a timely c-section
  • Failure to provide needed oxygen to newborns when necessary
  • Improper use of delivery instruments, including forceps and vacuum
