Weston Perinatal Hypoxia Attorney
Let Us Help You Seek Compensation for Your Child’s Injury
Perinatal hypoxia describes a condition immediately before or after birth when an infant’s tissues experience oxygen deficiency. In some cases, a baby may stop breathing because of birth complications, and lack of oxygen, as a result, can cause some of the infant’s brain cells to die. Sometimes, this issue could lead to cerebral palsy, which is a condition that can affect a child for the rest of his or her life.
If your infant was harmed because of medical negligence or carelessness, the person responsible should be held accountable for his or her actions. Talk to one of our skilled Weston perinatal hypoxia attorneys about your case. Rash Mueller is dedicated to helping the victims of personal injury seek compensation for the harm done to them.
Causes of Perinatal Hypoxia
There are many reasons an infant could experience oxygen deprivation before and after birth. Major causes of perinatal hypoxia include the following:
- Placental abruption
- Maternal smoking
- Traumatic brain damage
- Lack of adequate fetal monitoring
- Birth asphyxia
- Maternal anemia
In some cases, conditions that could cause oxygen deprivation could be predicted by the physician before the birth even takes place. If most doctors would have recommended a cesarean section (C-section) when your doctor failed to perform one, he or she may be guilty of medical malpractice.
Perinatal hypoxia is a serious injury that could lead to severe medical complications among infants. Severe brain damage, for example, could cause whole-body paralysis or learning issues. An infant with perinatal hypoxia is likely to experience the full effect of the condition 48 hours after birth, which means the impact of perinatal hypoxia can also be minimized if the situation is addressed within the 1st 48 hours after birth.
Other conditions perinatal hypoxia can cause include the following:
- Cerebral palsy
- Behavioral disorders
- Severe seizures

I can’t thank David Rash enough for everything he has done for me! Not only did he go out of his way to make sure I got everything I deserved, David was very caring and polite. He went out of his way to keep me informed and just to check in on my health. He’s a good guy and very very good at what he does! A+! If you want someone that actually cares, go with Rash Mueller. Thanks again David.- Jordan
When I say..you’ve reached the right people..ur lucky to be in contact with them!! Although they couldn’t help me with my case..Leading up to the decision lori kept in contact, showed empathy, was straight forward with all detail! Lori told me more than my own drs or the hospital did..I have closure because of HER! So I still won! My case was complicated to move forward due to other reasons..but she ain’t never let me down when speaking to her! She speaks to you as if she knew you forever! I appreciate this firm so much because before they say NO..they try, the listen and the put work in!!! Thank you guys so much for everything!- Adrian B.
From the first phone conversation with Lori, to the first time meeting with David and Jeff, all the way through and to the conclusion of my case, I felt as if these people truly cared about what happened to me. They didn’t just see a potential “case”. They were upset with my situation. They wanted to help. Through the years that this whole process takes, I have gotten to know them a bit better, and they have gotten to know me. I now consider them less “my legal team”, and more a part of my extended family, whether they realize it, or like it, or not. I so appreciate their kindness, genuine compassion, and “got my back” attitude. I hope you are never in a situation to need these folks, but if you ever are, I highly recommend talking to them and seeing if it’s a right fit for all.- Joel F.
