Serious Representation for Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)

Any time the flow of blood or oxygen to the brain is interrupted, the brain can suffer injury. Brain injuries can be focal (meaning only a specific part of the brain is affected) or global (meaning they affect the entire brain).

Focal brain injuries are often caused by direct trauma to the brain or by damaged, obstructed or abnormal blood vessels. A common type of focal brain injury is stroke, which more frequently occurs in older patients because their blood vessels are more fragile.

If your loved one is suffering from a brain injury caused by medical malpractice, it is important to work with a knowledgeable and experienced San Diego attorney. At the Law Offices of Steven I. Kastner, we can help you understand the complexities of such an injury and the elements of a brain injury malpractice lawsuit or wrongful death case.

Brain Injuries Caused During Birth

When brain injuries occur during birth, their impact can last a lifetime. When the flow of oxygen to the brain is significantly interrupted during labor and delivery, cerebral palsy can result. Cerebral palsy is a motor coordination problem which affects voluntary movement and coordination. Cerebral palsy can be caused by anoxia or asphyxia during the delivery. In some situations, delivering the baby earlier could have prevented injury.
