Serious injuries have the potential to cause significant brain damage that can leave a person partially or completely incapacitated. When catastrophic injures lead to severe brain damage, it can be devastating on loved ones who are caring for the injured person. Medical malpractice is something that occurs every day despite efforts to reduce and eventually eliminate this type of negligence. Patients entrust the expertise and qualifications of doctors to provide medical care and treatment that does not cause unnecessary harm. While many doctors provide excellent care and save lives, there are other doctors who have caused harm to patients as a result of negligent conduct.
