When Brain Injuries Result From Medical Malpractice
One of the most serious consequences of a mistake in diagnosis or treatment is brain damage. Any period of oxygen deprivation can result in a severe or permanent brain injury. If you suspect that a patient in your family suffered brain trauma due to a mistake by a doctor or negligence on the part of hospital staff, contact Miller & Wagner in Portland to discuss your legal options.

Brain injury can result from many different kinds of medical mistakes. An emergency room physician might fail to spot the signs of an imminent stroke, or might fail to order the tests necessary to detect a brain tumor. The untimely use of TPA to treat stroke within three hours of onset can result in uncontrolled bleeding rather than the intended dissolution of blood clots. The failure to monitor vital signs under anesthesia can result in hypoxia or anoxia with disastrous consequences for the patient.
At Miller & Wagner, we apply decades of medical malpractice litigation experience to reconstruct the story of a patient's complications. If we can get the support of medical experts for the proposition that a negligent mistake resulted in a serious brain injury, we'll have a good chance of proving liability against the doctor or nurse responsible for the patient's condition.
The potential defendants in a medical brain injury case include a cardiologist, radiologist, internist, surgeon, anesthesiologist, pharmacist or other specialist. Sometimes it's difficult to tell whether the injury resulted from negligent diagnosis or errors in treatment; in other cases, the causal connections are fairly clear.
