Coma

Connecticut Coma Lawyers – Kocian Law Group

A coma is a serious condition that can be difficult to treat. Sadly, many people in deep comas never wake up or never fully recover. Even when recovery is possible, it is a long, slow, and expensive process filled with obstacles for both the coma survivor and his or her family. If you or a loved one has experienced a coma due to another party’s negligence, call Kocian Law Group.

A coma is a period of unconsciousness lasting more than six hours in which a person cannot respond to normal stimuli.

Comas are caused by:

  • lack of oxygen to the brain
  • traumatic brain injury
  • overdoses of medication or other drugs
  • incorrect or unnecessary medication
  • defective medication
  • exposure to certain chemicals
  • brain infections
  • seizures
  • strokes

Even if a person wakes from a coma, he or she is unlikely to be able to function at the same level he or she did before the coma. Recovery for coma victims requires many specialists and individual therapies. The costs of this care are extremely high. Also, the care of a person in a coma takes an extremely high emotional toll.

If you or someone you love is facing a coma, please don’t hesitate to contact the Kocian Law Group to learn more about your legal rights.
