Proving a Traumatic Brain Injury After New York Medical Malpractice: Kingston Medical Malpractice Lawyer Explains

It is often said that a traumatic brain injury is an “invisible” personal injury.  This is because a traumatic brain injury, even if caused by the worst New York medical malpractice possible, may not reveal any injury on an imaging study.  Meaning that a traumatic brain injury may not leave any signs, marks, or visible damage on an MRI, CT-scan, or other imaging study.  This makes a traumatic brain injury, or TBI, difficult to prove.  However, our Kingston medical malpractice lawyer explains some common ways how to prove a TBI due to New York medical malpractice.

A traumatic brain injury caused by serious medical negligence, errors, recklessness, carelessness, or other mistakes will cause severe symptoms.  You know that before the New York medical malpractice you did not have these symptoms, but now you are suffering from them.  These symptoms are not easy to point to like a broken bone, but they are very real injuries.  Here at Fisher Malpractice Lawyer, our experienced Kingston medical malpractice lawyer and staff know that your injuries are real.  We believe you, and we can help others believe you.

We can do this through several ways.  The most basic and obvious is if your imaging study or studies depict damage to your brain.  If there is damage on an MRI, we can use the images to show were the damage is, how the damage there affects that part of the brain, and how it corroborates with your symptoms.  

But most of the time your injuries are not demonstrable in an imaging study.  These are some ways to prove your traumatic brain injury due to New York medical malpractice:

  • Using a neurological psychological examination;
  • Comparing observations by your co-workers, friends, loved ones, and other individuals of your abilities, functioning, and personality prior to the medical malpractice and after the medical malpractice;
  • Using your medical record to demonstrate symptoms such as the headaches and migraines; 
  • Proving your injuries through observations of your primary care doctor;
  • Demonstrating your limitations now which are new; 
  • IQ testing or other psychological testing; and
  • Other types of tests.

If you or a loved one have suffered a TBI from New York medical malpractice, your healthcare provider who caused these injuries should be liable for the damage.  Learn how our Kingston medical malpractice lawyer can help represent you.
