When a person suffers a coma, immediate action is needed to prevent permanent brain damage or death. The first step is to diagnose what is causing the coma so that appropriate treatment can begin.
If your loved one suffered a brain injury or death from coma due to negligent care by a medical provider, you may be entitled to compensation. At Miller & Wagner, LLP, our attorneys investigate and present damage claims for misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis or failure to treat serious medical conditions such as coma. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case. We are recognized as one of Oregon's pre-eminent medical malpractice law firms, representing plaintiffs injured by medical negligence in communities throughout Oregon and southwestern Washington.
What Is a Coma?
A coma is a prolonged state of unconsciousness. It may be caused by a variety of medical issues, including:
- Traumatic head injury
- Prescription drug errors
- Brain tumor
Comas typically do not last longer than several weeks. If a coma lasts longer, it may lead to a persistent vegetative state or brain death.
If you suspect that misdiagnosis of a medical condition led to your loved one's coma, or if your loved one did not receive appropriate care after lapsing into a coma, contact our lawyers for straight answers about your legal options.
