A Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy diagnosis might mean you have a medical malpractice case
Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) covers a variety of neurological birth injuries that are caused by a lack of oxygen in the baby’s brain during birth. These injuries are permanent and can range from mild to debilitating.
Medical mistakes may result in hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy in some of the following instances:
- Cardiac complications
- Umbilical cord injury
- Injury from umbilical cord complications
- Delayed decision to do a caesarean section
