Portland Hypoxic Brain Damage Attorney
Just Compensation for Birth Injuries
A lack of oxygen during birth can cause serious injury to your baby. There are many different birth injuries that are caused by a lack of oxygen, including hypoxic brain damage. At Angel Law, P.C., our birth injury attorney in Portland represents clients with babies who have suffered hypoxic brain damage due to mistakes during delivery.
How Hypoxic Brain Injuries Happen
Hypoxia occurs when oxygen is restricted, and the body begins to operate at a deficiency. This can result in certain organs shutting down or sustaining damage. During the birth process, umbilical cord compression can reduce oxygen and lead to hypoxic brain damage. A decrease in oxygen can lead to catastrophic injury, especially in a newborn baby with a rapidly developing brain.
Hypoxic brain injury can lead to problems that include:
- Developmental disorders
- Permanent speech and communication disabilities
- Vision or hearing loss or impairment
- Motor and balance impairment
- Seizure disorders
Tissue can begin to die after four minutes without oxygen. As a result, hypoxic brain injuries are always damaging. Healthcare providers have a responsibility for protecting the life and well-being of newborns. If your baby has suffered serious injury or developmental delays caused by hypoxic brain damage, our Portland birth injury lawyer can help.
