Siezures Late Diagnosis and Misdiagnosis Attorneys – Help Inside
Seizure disorders range when it comes to their effect on the patient as well as prevalence with regard to age groups. That said, seizures can negatively impact an individual’s life and make it almost impossible to do some of the things a healthy person takes for granted such as walking to the corner store, engaging in personal hygiene, living independently, cooking a meal and so on. Given the erratic manner in which seizures manifest, they can hit the individual at any time and without warning. As a result, these individuals are required to be on medication at all times, as well as be monitored on a regular basis so that these medications are titrated as needed. Epilepsy is a form of seizure disorder, and it is thought to be heritable, but it is not uncommon for people to develop the condition after a viral illness or even after an auto accident or any other catastrophic injury resulting in traumatic brain injury. Because seizures are so difficult to deal with, physicians must act fast and adhere to a set standard of care to help bring said seizures under control. If you believe that your doctor never did enough to help you manage your seizures, ignored your concerns about the same, failed to prescribe the right medication for your seizures, you may be eligible for substantial financial compensation for your injuries, and we’re here to help with that.

Seizures in Children and Adults
Put simply, seizures are erratic electrical bursts in the brain which disrupt the normal functioning of the brain. Seizures can manifest as young as a few week-old babies, or even as old as 70 years-old individual. Epilepsy is usually an inherited condition that affects between 1-2 percent of all humans. Infant seizures may be caused by things such as hypoxia or low oxygen levels during labor, in utero infections, brain bleeds, blood clots, and as a result of fetal distress. Conversely, seizures in adults may be due to a traumatic brain injury, as a continuation of childhood epilepsy, due to hormonal imbalances, as a result of viral or bacterial meningitis, and due to triggers such as sleeplessness, severe emotions, fever or exercising for long periods of time.
