In every labor and delivery, it is critical that the doctors and medical professionals make certain that the unborn child receives sufficient levels of oxygen. When fetuses do not get enough oxygen during labor, they can suffer profound brain injuries. Brain injuries can lead to severe developmental delays with language, motor skills and other facets of a child's development. If your child has suffered a brain injury at birth, it is easy to wonder how things could have been different.
If you suspect that your child's brain injuries were caused by a doctor's negligence, it is important to discuss your situation with a medical malpractice lawyer. For three generations, people across New York City and beyond have turned to the attorneys and staff of Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff LLP.
Oxygen deprivation at birth takes a number of forms, including cerebral hypoxia. Cerebral hypoxia is defined as reduced amounts of oxygen to the brain. When a fetus receives a diminished supply of oxygen for a lengthy period of time, he or she may suffer from a condition called hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE). When a fetus gets no oxygen to the brain, they suffer from a condition called cerebral anoxia. When a child does not get proper amounts of oxygen during birth, they suffer from a condition known as birth asphyxia.
