A neurological disorder is a disease involving the central nervous system (CNS) and the peripheral nervous system PNS). The brain and spinal cord makeup the CNS as well as their different structures. 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 disease and other dementias, cerebrovascular diseases including stroke, migraine and other headache disorders, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, neuro-infections, brain tumors, traumatic brain injury, traumatic disorders of the nervous system due to head trauma. 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) or anything (drug company, chemical company, your employer, etc.) but you may be entitled to benefits and financial compensation. Who, or what, is liable for your condition depends on how you developed the disorder and benefits, damages and monetary compensation you may qualify for can be lost wage compensation, medical expenses, pain and suffering and lowered quality of life compensation among others. Having lost a loved one may entitle their estate to death benefits, funeral benefits and survival benefits. To discuss your case with our Maryland injury attorneys please click here.

Reasons For Neurological Condition Lawsuits
Many neurological conditions are genetic but environmental factors can play a role. Chemical exposure is a common cause of the development of neurological conditions. Also, neurological conditions can also be misdiagnosed by different doctors such as obstetricians, gynecologists, pediatricians, internal medicine and infectious disease doctors. An example is developing Parkinson’s Disease due to exposure to the herbicide paraquat. In these cases you may have grounds for a neurological disorder injury lawsuits against the manufacturer Syngenta or other maker.
Also, the weedkiller Roundup, made by Monsanto who is a subsidiary of Bayer, is linked to Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, numerous other cancers and neurological disorders such as autism, headaches, stroke & dementia and other serious health conditions. Our Baltimore neurological disease injury attorneys handle these claims throughout Maryland and Washington D.C.
Many neurological diseases are misdiagnosed with dementia, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Epilepsy and other seizure disorders being the most common. Any type of 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.

In Maryland and Washington D.C. one of the most common reasons an older person is put in a nursing home is due to Alzheimer’s Disease, dementia, memory loss and Parkinson’s Disease. These patients in many cases require more care, compassion, patience and understanding from nursing home staff and healthcare providers. Assisted living home, skilled nursing facility and memory care facility residents with these disorders are at higher risk for abuse and neglect than other residents. If your loved one is being mistreated emotionally, financially, mentally, physically or psychologically by a nursing home in Maryland or Washington DC you may be able to sue the facility on behalf of your loved one.
