Experienced Attorneys for Locked-In Syndrome – File Your Claim Here

Medical Malpractice

It is thought to only occur in movies because of the rarity of the condition, but locked-in syndrome is real, and it can happen to anyone. The syndrome refers to a condition that makes it impossible for a patient to move any part of their body except for their eyes, suffering total paralysis from head to toe. Patients are only able to communicate via blinking, and it is said to occur due to damage to the brainstem, and can remain in this vegetative state indefinitely. Locked in syndrome can be terrifying and traumatic to both the sufferer and their family members, and it can precipitate an extended period of extended hospitalization. Individuals that suffer from locked-in syndrome develop it due to a poorly managed traumatic brain injury, and in some cases, botched surgery. If you or a loved one developed locked-in syndrome, you have every right to file a lawsuit in order to recover money damages and seek out justice and closure, and we’re here to help you with this.
