Misdiagnosis of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries require emergency medical attention. When you take your loved one to medical professionals in an emergency, you expect the doctors and staff to provide a certain level of care. Unfortunately medical malpractice associated with misdiagnosing brain injuries is far too common.

Many doctors and other medical professionals do not recognize traumatic brain injury symptoms when they see them. As a result, many innocent patients unnecessarily spend months experiencing:

  • Headaches
  • Mood swings
  • Seizures
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Behavioral changes

If you've experienced any of these TBI symptoms after an accident or some other trauma, you have a right to expect that your doctor will accurately diagnose your condition. If he or she fails to do so and you suffer as a result, our medical malpractice lawyers are may be able to help.

If your loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury and a subsequent misdiagnosis that worsened their condition, please call 203-878-1254 or contact Penner Law Firm today for your free consultation with an experienced Connecticut lawyer. 

A Delay in Diagnosis is Medical Malpractice

Many people think that in order to have a medical malpractice case your doctor or other medical professional must have actively made a mistake, like operating on the wrong limb. But not all medical malpractices cases arise from such obvious mistakes.

A significant portion of medical malpractice in Connecticut and across the country is due to delayed diagnosis of an illness. With many illnesses, such as cancer, a delayed diagnosis of even a few weeks can affect your ability to fight the disease.

Not every delay in diagnosis amounts to malpractice. A doctor can only work with the information he or she is provided, but when they have all the information to make a correct diagnosis and fail to, they are causing harm to you and your family.

An experienced medical malpractice attorney can help you determine whether your case is actionable and whether you should pursue a medical malpractice lawsuit.
