Coma Caused By Medical Malpractice – Get Help Here
Persistent vegetative state is the medical term given to what most people call a coma, a state where one is unresponsive due to damage suffered in the reticular activating system of the brain. Comas are traumatic, unpredictable and may lead to worsening health, if a person ever wakes up. In addition, some individuals may never wake up from a coma, and may remain in a state of “suspended animation” for months, or even years. Comas may cause a hospital bill to shoot up to astronomical amount due to the need for the individual to be hooked up to ventilators and other life-supporting machines which can be costly in the long run. It is important to understand that comas don’t just happen, and some trauma or form of medical negligence is what causes people to slip into a persistent vegetative state. If you or a loved one suspect that a physician’s negligence was the proximate reason for your loved one slipping into a coma, you have every right to file a legal claim in order to recover money damages and justice, and we’re here to help with that.
