Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE) Injuries

Not as commonly known as cerebral palsy and other birth injuries, this injury can have devastating effects. HIE is defined as brain damage caused by a shortage of oxygen or blood flow to the brain.

Reduced blood flow — even for as little as five minutes — can result in irreparable harm such as developmental delays, mental retardation, cerebral palsy and seizures. In some cases, HIE is caused by medical malpractice during a difficult labour or delivery process.

If you have gone through a difficult childbirth experience and your child has suffered injuries that commonly stem from a lack of blood or oxygen flow, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice claim. Timing Is Important.
