People outside the medical profession are unlikely to hear and consider the word "encephalopathy" unless this serious condition somehow affects their lives. Information posted by the National Institutes of Health offers this definition of the condition: “any diffuse [widespread] disease of the brain that alters brain function or structure.”
Encephalopathy sufferers and their families may find themselves coping with an array of life-changing consequences and symptoms ranging from progressive memory loss to seizures. Sadly, treatment options are available but limited, brain damage can be permanent and encephalopathy can be fatal.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with encephalopathy and you suspect the cause is chemical exposure, medical malpractice or some other form of negligence, you may have options to seek compensation. At Eisenberg, Cutt, Kendell & Olson, our legal team has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in relief for clients—many of which who have sustained a serious brain injury.
