Neurological Disorders

Neurological Disorder Lawyer in Houston

Legal Representation for Injury Victims

Diseases, disorders, and conditions involving the central nervous system (CNS) and the peripheral nervous system (PNS) are classified as neurological disorders. The brain, spinal cord, and their structures makeup the CNS. The PNS is comprised of cranial nerves, peripheral nerves, nerve roots, autonomic nervous system, neuromuscular junction, and muscles.

These different disorders can include:

  • Epilepsy
  • Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Neuro-infections
  • Traumatic disorders of the nervous system due to head trauma
  • Cerebrovascular diseases, including stroke, migraine, and other headache disorders
  • Brain tumors

Neurological disorders can also be the result of malnutrition.

When diagnosed with a neurological disorder of some sort, your first thought may not be to seek legal recourse against anyone (such as your doctor or hospital, a drug company, a chemical company, your employer, etc.), but you may be entitled to benefits and financial compensation. Who is liable for your condition depends on how you developed the disorder. Benefits, damages, and monetary compensation that you may qualify for can include lost wage compensation, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lowered quality of life compensation, among others. If you lost a loved one, their estate may be entitled to death benefits, funeral benefits, and survival benefits.

To discuss your case, please fill out our contact form. All injury and neurological condition lawsuits are handled on a contingency fee basis, meaning we charge no fees if we are unable to obtain compensation for you.

Grounds for Neurological Condition Lawsuits

Product Liability Lawsuits

Neurological conditions are often genetic, but environmental factors and lifestyle choices also play a role. Chemical exposure is a common cause of the development of neurological conditions. Neurological conditions can also be misdiagnosed by doctors.

An example of a neurological disorder claim based on product liability is if a person developed Parkinson’s disease due to exposure to the herbicide paraquat. In these cases, a victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the manufacturer Syngenta, or another maker.

Roundup, a common weedkiller made by Monsanto (who is a subsidiary of Bayer), is linked to non-Hodgkins lymphoma and numerous other cancers, as well as neurological disorders such as autism, headaches, stroke, dementia, and other serious health conditions.

Medical Malpractice Lawsuits

Neurological diseases are often misdiagnosed by doctors, for various reasons. The most commonly misdiagnosed neurological disorders are dementia, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and epilepsy and other seizure disorders. Any diagnostic error — whether it is a delayed diagnosis, misdiagnosis, or inaccurate diagnosis — may qualify you for being able to file a medical malpractice lawsuit against the doctor or hospital responsible for the error.

Nursing Home Abuse

Patients in skilled nursing facilities, such as memory care centers and assisted living homes, are at a high risk of abuse and neglect by nursing home staff. Abuse and neglect can lead to the development of neurological disorders, and residents who are living with a neurological disorder may be at a higher risk for mistreatment. This is unacceptable, and we will not allow your loved one to be abused, mistreated, or neglected in any way.
