NYC Injury Attorneys for Victims of Infant Brain Damage

Investigating Oxygen Deprivation & Developmental Delays

Oxygen deprivation — whether partial (hypoxia) or total (anoxia)—is one of the most serious medical emergencies that can occur during the labor and delivery process. This situation often results in irreparable brain damage with lifetime consequences for the affected child and his or her entire family.

Oxygen deprivation can be caused by:

  • Low blood pressure
  • Umbilical cord prolapse
  • Becoming stuck in the birth canal
  • Umbilical cord wrapping around the neck

Approximately 4 in 1,000 newborns will experience oxygen deprivation during birth, causing damage to the brain and other organs. However, if a physician acts quickly enough, some of the damage of hypoxia is recoverable. In addition, many of the causes of hypoxia or anoxia are preventable if the healthcare providers take necessary steps.

Getting Answers for the Parents of Children with Brain Injuries

The symptoms of an infant brain injury may not start appearing until months or years after a child is born. The child may initially be diagnosed with cerebral palsy or another disorder, and the parents may have trouble getting straight answers about the causes.

A legal claim may help you get answers. It may also help you get the financial compensation you need to help with your child’s access to appropriate care and support. Our lawyers firmly believe in the right of every injured individual to hold the responsible party accountable. As a result, we fight for our clients’ benefit with aggression and insight.

Infant Brain Damage Lawyers Stand by Your Side

In New York, medical malpractice claims for birth injuries must generally be brought within 10 years of the date of delivery. Our attorneys are experienced at carefully investigating our clients’ cases with the help of qualified medical experts so we can get claims filed promptly.

At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., we understand how devastating and overwhelming it can be to realize that your child has suffered brain damage. We also understand the importance of moving quickly to ensure that your child gets whatever compensation he or she may deserve. If you believe your child may have suffered brain damage during delivery, don’t hesitate to contact us to schedule a free consultation.

While not every developmental delay or disability is the result of brain damage during delivery, you deserve an opportunity to find out exactly what happened and to pursue the compensation your child needs. Let us put our experience and passion to work for you. Our New York City birth injury lawyers serve clients in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, Staten Island, Long Island, and Westchester.

Our attorneys make your voice heard. Call us at (212) 577-9325 today for your complimentary consultation.
