What Is Hypoxia?
Everyone depends on oxygen — this is no different for a fetus just before a labor and delivery. If your baby was deprived of oxygen before he or she was born or during the labor and delivery, this is called hypoxia.
Hypoxia often leads to a form of cerebral palsy that could have been prevented from proper medical care. Children with cerebral palsy often deal with a lifetime of medical care to treat seizures and may depend on caregivers for their daily needs.
Other times, individuals with cerebral palsy may be able to live independently with proper medical care and therapy. Your baby deserves the right medical care to maximize his or her recovery and enjoyment of life. This can be very expensive. If your child’s birth injury is related to medical malpractice, you should not be put on the brink of bankruptcy to cover necessary expenses. Let us apply our years of experience and legal skills to help you obtain a full financial recovery.
Could My Newborn’s Birth Injury Been Prevented?
In the United States, delivery room doctors, labor and delivery room nurses and OB-GYN specialists are trained to provide patients with a certain standard of medical care. This includes recognizing and responding to potential risk factors during a pregnancy and the labor and delivery. You may have a valid medical malpractice claim if your newborn suffered from hypoxia after a medical professional failed taking proper measures to addresses the following types of concerns:
- Fetal distress
- Significant drop in the mother’s blood pressure
- Concerns with the umbilical cord
- Concerns with the placenta
- Contractions considerably close to each other
