Hydrocephalus, sometimes called “water on the brain,” refers medically speaking to excess fluid in the brain. Excessive fluid can lead to serious medical complications. If you or a loved one was misdiagnosed or mistreated for hydrocephalus, you may be a patient who is entitled to compensation from your medical provider. Medical Claim Legal can help you.
How Does Hydrocephalus Occur?
Hydrocephalus can be present at birth or acquired as an adult, thus making it a hard condition to diagnose. If a person acquires the condition after birth, it is usually the result of a specific event (accident, stroke, or infection).
Hydrocephalus and Medical Malpractice
Just because a medical condition is present does not mean a settlement is warranted. So why are there lawsuits surrounding this condition? Often it is the result of the physician’s malpractice. Generally, an individual suffering from hydrocephalus is treated using a shunt procedure performed to alleviate excess water in the brain. There are multiple problems that can occur with shunts in the human brain including device breakdown, blockage, infection, and drainage issues. When these problems occur, the patient may be entitled to compensation.
