Medical Negligence Cases Involving Traumatic Brain Injuries

Rob Kornfeld represents clients and their families who have been suffered catastrophic injuries caused by medical negligence. Many of these catastrophic injuries are a result of brain injuries, cognitive impairment and occupational or vocational disabilities. Mr. Kornfeld has firsthand knowledge of mild traumatic brain injuries and what it takes to rehabilitate and recover from cognitive impairment and disability. (See Rob’s Story).

Over the years, Rob Kornfeld has been very successful in litigating medical malpractice cases involving the failure to diagnose and timely treat intracranial aneuyrsms and strokes. With his special interest in and understanding of patients who have suffered intracranial hemorrhages from a ruptured aneurysm, Mr. Kornfeld has helped families to recover the finances necessary to put their lives back together in caring for their loved ones. 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.

Mr. Kornfeld’s medical negligence practice is devoted to helping those patients who have suffered injuries from ruptured aneuyrsms and brain injuries from strokes or medical mistakes which should have been prevented with timely medical diagnosis and care.

The failure to diagnose an aneurysm is often caused by a health care provider’s inability to recognize many of the obvious clinical signs and symptoms of an expanding aneuyrsm or a sentinel bleed. Often this failure to diagnose the symptoms of a stroke or aneuyrsm is caused by a health care provider’s negligence to timely perform diagnostic tests, such as MRI or MRA or CT-arthrogram, and to then correctly interpret these diagnostic tests.

Contingency Fee Representation

Since the cost of legal services are always a major concern, medical malpractice Everett attorney Rob Kornfeld offers legal services on a contingent fee basis. A contingent fee is simply a fee based on a percentage of the recovery, which is paid at the conclusion of the case. If there is no recovery there is no fee. Typically, there is no money up front.
