Fiercely Advocating On Our Clients’ Behalf
Perinatal Hypoxia

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 medical malpractice 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.

Long-Term Effects

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
  • Disabilities
  • Behavioral disorders
  • Severe seizures
