Lack Of Oxygen To The Brain Causes Cerebral Palsy
Cerebral hypoxia (oxygen deprivation) and ischemic brain (lack of blood flow) injuries can cause permanent brain damage or lead to death. Whether the injury was caused to an infant in childbirth or to an adult, the results can be devastating.
At The Lawrence Firm, PSC, our attorneys are experienced with pursuing claims against all parties responsible for hypoxic and ischemic injuries and will work to recover compensation to help improve your quality of life and to provide for your future care needs. With offices in Covington and Cincinnati, our attorneys represent clients in northern Kentucky and southwest Ohio with a range of birth injury claims, including hypoxia and ischemic brain injury claims.
Hypoxic and ischemic brain injuries (HIE) resulting from negligence affect victims and their families long after the incident. We will work to restore your financial security so you can deal with the aftermath of a serious brain injury.
Investigation In Birth Injury Claims
Cerebral hypoxia and ischemic brain injuries are often the result of malpractice in childbirth. Interruption of blood or oxygen to the baby (birth asphyxia or anoxia) can be seen by doctors and nurses on the fetal monitoring strip, and prompt intervention can prevent injury. Adults suffering hypoxic or ischemic brain injuries may have suffered a misdiagnosed heart attack or stroke, which can lead to brain injuries.
If a loved one has suffered a hypoxic brain injury as a result of medical negligence, our attorneys can assist you in identifying every party responsible. We will fully investigate the case, collect necessary records, consult with witnesses and contact necessary experts to demonstrate your claim.
Throughout the process, our attorneys will remain mindful of your needs and will answer any questions you should have. We will take the time to explore all options and alternatives for your family and take the necessary legal steps to protect your family into the future.
