Neurology Malpractice Claims Lawyer
Few areas of medicine are as highly specialized as neurology. When a medical problem or injury impacts the brain or nervous system, it is often necessary to have the expertise of a neurosurgeon for diagnosis, treatment and possibly surgery. If medical mistakes are made in the diagnosis or treatment of a neurological condition, the patient could be at high risk for life-changing effects to their health and quality of life.
Injuries Caused by Neurosurgeon Errors
Like all areas of medicine, those who specialize in neurosurgery can make mistakes. This can occur during exams, diagnosis and during treatment. These errors can be extremely harmful due to the specialized nature of the field and the repercussions of damage to the nervous system. Mistakes made by neurosurgeons can include:
- Surgical errors causing damage to the brain or nervous system. A wrong incision or other errors during neurosurgery can cause permanent damage.
- Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose a neurological condition.
- Misinterpreting images, lab or test results.
- Medical abandonment – There are a limited number of neurosurgeons available to complete treatments and if a neurosurgeon abandons a patient during treatment, they may not be able to find another to complete the needed surgery or procedure.
