Medical Malpractice - Hypoxic Brain Injury

Hypoxic (anoxic) brain injuries occur when the brain is deprived of oxygen. These injuries can occur during child birth when a doctor fails to perform an emergency c-section when severe fetal distress is demonstrated or where the doctor fails to properly manage a vaginal delivery resulting in oxygen deprivation. Approximately 10 to 20 percent of newborns with hypoxic brain injury will die shortly after birth. Those that survive will often face lifelong neurological problems such as cerebral palsy, mental retardation, epilepsy and cognitive deficits.

Hypoxic brain injury can also occur during choking, drowning or as a result of severe trauma causing damage to the brain stem which controls breathing.

Our firm has successfully handled numerous hypoxic brain injury cases, including a successfully litigated wrongful death case in which a nursing home patient suffered a hypoxic brain injury when she choked while consuming a meal that was contraindicated by her diet plan. Our attorneys also successfully litigated a case in which the firm’s client was rear ended by tractor trailer resulting in a traumatic dissection of her internal carotid arteries and a hypoxic brain injury.

If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury due to someone’s negligence call Breit Drescher Imprevento and Walker for an initial free consultation to discuss your legal options.
