Brain Injury From Medical Negligence
Holding Doctors Accountable For Lifelong Disability
Physicians have a duty to “do no harm.” This certainly extends to taking precautions to avoid brain damage in surgery or hospital care.
If a loved one suffered irreversible brain injury while under medical care, you may suspect that negligence played a role. The Mount Laurel attorneys of Ginsberg & O'Connor, P.C., can explore your possible malpractice case. We have successfully sued physicians and hospitals in central New Jersey and statewide.

Did Medical Malpractice Result In Permanent Brain Damage?
Brain injury is typically associated with a blow to the head or the violent forces of a car accident. But the brain is also susceptible to oxygen deprivation. Brain damage can occur in a few short minutes.
Medical negligence can cause lasting brain injury in several ways:
- Cerebral palsy or other brain trauma in newborns from delivery errors or failure to perform a timely C-section
- Anesthesia mistakes in surgery
- Scalpel mistakes during brain surgery
- Medication errors (overdose or contraindications)
- Failure to diagnose stroke or heart attack
- Delayed treatment in the emergency room
- Hospital falls resulting in traumatic brain injury
Our experienced medical malpractice attorneys can examine the medical records and other evidence to establish how doctors or nurses strayed from medical protocol.
Appropriate Compensation For Brain Injury
Brain damage manifests differently for each person, depending on the region of the brain and the extent of damage. We work with clients, their families and experts in neurology to document the symptoms and hardships. These can include cognitive problems (concentration, memory, language processing and fuzzy/foggy feeling), physiological problems (balance, gait, headaches and sensory loss) and emotional and psychological issues (outbursts, depression and personality change).
People who suffer moderate to severe brain damage may be unable to work or may require assisted living or round-the-clock care. We work to ensure that clients and their families are fully compensated for the personal and financial aftermath.
