Hypoxia

Ohio Birth Injury Attorneys Investigate Birth Injuries Caused by Hypoxia

Cerebral hypoxia is a condition caused by lack of oxygen supply to the brain or other area of the body. During the delivery process, a lack of oxygen to a baby’s brain can cause permanent brain damage. Similarly, a lack of oxygen to another body part can cause significant damage.

Fetal hypoxia can be caused by medical negligence during the delivery process. Doctors and other medical professionals are expected to take measures to prevent this dangerous condition. Unfortunately, medical malpractice is often to blame for causing this condition:

  • Failure to monitor fetus during pregnancy or childbirth
  • Failure to diagnose bacterial infection
  • Failure to perform a timely C-section
  • Trauma to the brain during delivery

The results of a hypoxia brain injury may not be immediately noticed. In fact, years may go by before the full extent of the birth injury may be known. Even then, the signs of hypoxia brain damage may be hard to recognize, or confused as another condition.

Choosing A Birth Injury Lawyer

If you are a parent whose child has suffered a hypoxia brain injury, it is important to speak to a birth injury lawyer who understands the complicated nature of such injuries. Before hiring an attorney, be sure to ask them about their specific experience in birth injury cases.

At Clark, Perdue & List, we focus on the legal details of a fetal hypoxia case while parents attend to what is next in the life of their now-injured newborn. Our firm stands by the sides of clients dealing with serious birth injuries, even in cases against large hospitals. Birth injury cases are often a battle of experts, so we frequently work with medical experts to provide testimony.
