Medical malpractice can harm a victim in many ways. One type of injury that may occur is a brain injury.

Victims may receive financial compensation when medical malpractice causes a brain injury. Our Greenville medical malpractice legal team can explain what you need to know.

Types of Medical Malpractice Resulting in Brain Injury

  • Oxygen deprivation, anoxia
  • Blood infection
  • Anesthesia problems including wrong dosage, poor monitoring, and failing to respond in a timely manner if problems arise
  • Prescription medication errors, including delivery of the wrong medicine, incorrect dose, or failing to identify problematic side effects
  • Errors during surgery resulting from trauma to the brain
  • Abuse or neglect of a patient during nursing care, which may occur in a hospital setting or a nursing home
  • Failing to diagnose initial brain trauma that results in a secondary injury

Brain injury may occur when a person is receiving medical treatment for the brain, spine, or skull. In addition, brain injury can happen when a victim receives care for other parts of the body.

Effects of Medical Malpractice Brain Injuries

Brain injuries are inherently complex. Trauma to the brain can impact a victim in a variety of ways.


A person may have difficulty thinking, including understanding and interpreting the world around them.


The body relies on the brain to communicate signals. These signals tell the body to move. When this chain of communication is disrupted, physical movement may be impaired.


Victims may have trouble speaking and understanding language.


Injuries may impair touch and sensation.

Regulation of emotions

Brain trauma may hurt a person’s ability to regulate their emotions.


Coma, or a lack of awareness and responsiveness, may occur when medical malpractice results in brain trauma.

Degeneration of the brain

Harm to the brain may cause long-term degeneration, which can make a victim more susceptible to diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.


Injury to the brain because of medical malpractice may result in death.

Delayed diagnosis

Injury may prevent medical professionals from diagnosing and treating other medical conditions.

Treatment and Compensation for a Brain Injury

Medical malpractice compensation is based on the harm that has occurred, the cost of treatment, and the impact on daily life. A victim may receive compensation for any of the following:

  • Emergency medical care
  • Surgery
  • Diagnostic testing
  • Additional harm from failing to recognize and treat complications
  • Psychiatric attention
  • Medication
  • Nursing care, hospitalization
  • Personal care needs
  • Physical therapy
  • Inability to earn an income
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Mental injury and emotional anguish
  • The inability to live a normal life, including cognitive impairment

Compensation for medical malpractice resulting in brain trauma should include all the ways that a victim has been impacted, both financially and personally. Because brain trauma can be debilitating, compensation amounts are often high. The victim should receive an amount that reflects their financial and personal harm.
