Holding Doctors Accountable For Mismanaging Brain Injuries
A brain injury is an extremely delicate wound to recover from. Whether the damage is being treated with medicine or surgery, everyone involved with the treatment needs to be sure they are handling things with the highest levels of precision and care. When a staff member’s actions cause a brain injury to become worse, the victim deserves fair compensation for the lifetime of complications they will experience.

Attorney Frank Morrissey is proud to be able to serve the Chicagoland community through their medical malpractice claims, including those related to complex matters such as bleeding brain injuries and traumatic brain injuries.
Forms Of Malpractice Related To Brain Bleeds
All staff at a hospital, from new nurses to veteran doctors, need to be extremely thorough in their work when it comes to any treatment involving the brain. A momentary lapse in judgement or reckless decision can cause someone to suffer from malpractice such as:
- Surgical errors that result in avoidable damage that causes brain bleeds
- Delayed treatments of a brain bleed that causes permanent damage
- Not properly informing a patient of the full spectrum of risks related to a brain bleed treatment
- Not properly diagnosing a brain bleed or taking longer than necessary to diagnose it
These accidents leave a patient with a lifetime of costs and expenses associated with the damage that was done, and Mr. Morrissey fights to secure fair compensation to cover those costs.
The Costs Of A Traumatic Brain Injury
In some cases, a patient may come in to a hospital with a minor head injury like a concussion, but the actions of the hospital staff elevate the injury to a traumatic brain injury (TBI). When a surgical mistake or mishandling of a patient cause TBIs, fair compensation for these injuries should include current and future costs such as:
- Loss of bodily function
- Loss of earning potential
- Medical expenses
- Relocation and renovation fees to accommodate a disability
- In-home care or long-term care facilities
Mr. Morrissey will fight for you through negotiation and litigation to leave nothing on the table in your claim and provide you and your family the resources you require to move forward after what happened.
