Brick, NJ Hypoxia Attorneys
Ocean County Medical Malpractice Lawyers Represent Your Family Like We Would Represent Our Family
Hypoxia occurs when the brain does not receive enough oxygen to sustain itself. Brain cells can start dying within five minutes of this lack of oxygen. Brain damage and other health problems can result. There are numerous ways hypoxia can occur prior to and during delivery of your child. Many of these can be caused by medical malpractice. If your child has suffered a birth injury due to negligence on the part of the doctor, nurses, medical staff or hospital, those responsible need to be held accountable.
At Drazin and Warshaw, P.C., our attorneys give clients the same kind of tenacious, dedicated representation they would give to their own family. Our law firm has more than 65 years of experience in handling medical malpractice lawsuits, including those involving birth injury. The firm was handed down from father to sons, so we understand the importance of family here. The long track record of verdicts and settlements by our Hazlet lawyers on hypoxia and other birth injury cases speaks for itself.
We have the necessary resources to apply to every case we accept. We also build lasting relationships with you and your family, gaining a full understanding of your child’s birth injuries and how they affect every aspect of your lives. Our attorneys’ extensive medical knowledge gives them the ability to clearly communicate the lasting effects of your child’s injuries to the opposition or to a jury if your case goes to trial.
Our law firm has a reputation for only bringing legitimate claims against negligent parties. Because of this, our cases are taken very seriously by the defense. This is potentially advantageous to our clients in pretrial negotiations. However, if we feel that our clients are not being treated fairly, we are not afraid to take their cases to court.
Hypoxia and the Health Issues It Can Cause
When the brain loses access to oxygen for any length of time, the potential for damage is severe and increases the longer the brain is oxygen-starved. Prior to and during delivery, there are many ways hypoxia can be caused, including severe pre-eclampsia, hemorrhage, a prolapsed umbilical cord and an emergency C-section. With proper care and monitoring, all of these can potentially be avoided.
Hypoxia can result in:
- Cerebral palsy
- Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE)
- Delayed development
- Brain damage
Our law firm has been fighting for New Jersey families for two generations. Bringing a birth injury lawsuit can not only benefit your child and your family, it can also force doctors and medical institutions to look at their practices, procedures and training and may prevent this tragedy from occurring to other families in the future.
