Traumatic Brain Injury Involving Medical Negligence
Rob Kornfeld has extensive expertise in cases where medical personnel failed
to timely diagnose and treat intracranial aneurysms (aneurysms in the brain).
The negligence of primary care providers, family physicians, radiologists,
and other HMO providers who failed to administer needed diagnostic tests,
didn’t run them in time or improperly read the scans can cause irreversible
injury or even death.
Failure to timely diagnose and treat strokes or aneurysms can lead to intracranial
bleeds and cause devastating, life-long injuries, paralysis, cognitive
impairment and other health care issues for patients and their families.
For those that survive this terrible type of medical negligence, cognitive
impairment and occupational or vocational disabilities are common.

THE IMPORTANT OF TIMELY BRAIN INJURY TREATMENT
With all brain injuries, timely and accurate diagnosis is imperative but
the failure to timely diagnose and treat an aneurysm before it ruptures
will lead to catastrophic brain injuries or death. Patients who survive
will likely have cognitive impairment and disabling injuries, unable to
ever live independently again. When victims come in for treatment, it’s
important that the proper tests are run promptly.
Failure to diagnose an aneurysm is often caused by a health care provider’s
inability to recognize the obvious clinical signs and symptoms of an expanding
aneurysm or a sentinel bleed. Misdiagnosis or failure to recognize symptoms
of a stroke or an aneurysm is usually tied to providers neglecting to
timely perform diagnostic tests (MRI, MRA, or CT-arthrogram) and correctly
interpret these diagnostic tests.
