Michigan Medical Negligence Lawsuit Filed For Fall in Hospital – Traumatic Brain Injury
Due to the fall, the client suffered a significant injury to the head. Photographs taken in the hospital after the incident demonstrate the severity of the impact caused by the fall. He suffered a large laceration, a concussion, and a traumatic brain injury.
According to the Center for Disease Control data on traumatic brain injuries (http://www.cdc.gov/Features/dsTBI_BrainInjury/ ) falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries in the United States. Over 35% of all brain injuries are caused by falls. In particularly, falls result in 523,043 TBI-related emergency department visits and 62,334 hospitalizations.
Our medical malpractice lawyers will be pursuing this case in an effort to recover both the pain and suffering that the patient has gone through as a result of the alleged negligence, as well as, lost wages, and the out-of-pocket expenses the patient endured as a result of such injuries. No trial date has been set by the court.
