Hypoxia & Brain Damaged Babies
Hypoxia is a medical condition resulting from a lack of oxygen. It is a
leading cause of serious birth injuries and brain damaged babies. At Rheingold,
Giuffra, Ruffo & Plotkin LLP, we have handled many cases in which
brain damage in babies was caused by negligence on the part of obstetricians,
obstetrical nurses, and other medical professionals.
Medical Mistakes Leading To Cerebral Palsy
Lack of oxygen during birth can lead to
cerebral palsy and other serious conditions that your child may have to contend with
for the rest of his or her life. These serious injuries deserve to be
examined closely so that any involved negligence can be properly addressed
by the law.
Medical mistakes that may lead to cerebral palsy include:
- Failure to diagnose and treat fetal distress
- Failure to treat maternal infections
- Failure to perform a C-section when conditions call for it
- Improper use of forceps or vacuum extraction during delivery
- Failure to treat jaundice or meningitis
- Failure to ensure that the baby has adequate oxygen supply
