There are rare occasions when someone suffers a brain injury due to medical negligence. Examples include:
- During birth, when a newborn baby is starved of oxygen due to mistakes made by medical staff
- When surgery goes wrong, resulting in damage to the brain
These types of injuries can be devastating, and compensation can be sought for the pain and suffering caused. There may also be lifelong financial implications, including costs for ongoing medical care and loss of future earnings.
Making a Brain Injury Claim Against the NHS
In cases of medical negligence, most claims will be made against the NHS. However, if the negligence occurred at a private practice rather than an NHS hospital, the victim is still entitled to make a claim for compensation against a private medical centre.
No matter what the circumstances, compensation can be claimed if it can be proved that negligence was involved.
