Brain Damage Malpractice Lawsuits
Speak With Our Baltimore Trial Attorneys
Brain damage is an umbrella term that encompasses any medical condition that involves the destruction of brain cells. Generally speaking, there are two kinds of brain injuries: traumatic brain injuries (TBI)—injuries caused by external forces, such as a head injury; and acquired brain injuries, which are the result of congenital disorders.
Some traumatic brain injuries may occur from blunt trauma such as a car accident or physical attack. In other instances, however, brain damage is the result of a medical or surgical error, which should not have occurred. If this is the case for you or a loved one, our Baltimore medical malpractice lawyers have the experience and resources to fight for you in court.

We proved that their doctors and nurses were negligent and secured millions of dollars for the family. As a result of our work, that family will be able to take care of their child without financial stress or worry.
Our other case results include:
