Causes of Spinal Cord Injury
The Stroke Association is highlighting this staffing shortage because of the clear evidence that access to experienced stroke medical professionals gives sufferers the very best chance of avoiding a serious brain injury and instead being able to rebuild their lives.
As medical negligence solicitors we often encounter cases where there have been shortcomings in care. My colleague, Sevim, has blogged about the importance of acting FAST in order to avoid a brain injury.
The Victoria Derbyshire programme featured this story last Friday, with two individuals explaining that they were not given appropriate care when reporting to hospital with classic stroke symptoms. Instead, their symptoms were misdiagnosed and ignored, leaving them with lasting, irreversible brain damage. Sevim’s blog explores the common failures that leave patients with irreversible brain damage.
If you are worried that someone you care about could have avoided a brain injury if they had had effective treatment for their stroke then please call us on 020 7814 1200.
