Many parents do not realize the full extent of the damage their child has experienced until developmental delays become apparent. Children who have suffered hypoxia experience mental and emotional problems that may keep them from living a normal life. They often need added support and financial assistance to accommodate their needs.
When Doctor Negligence Causes Lack of Oxygen at Birth
One of the sad things about hypoxia is that it is often entirely preventable. Lack of oxygen at birth can frequently be avoided when the proper care is given by doctors and other medical providers. When hypoxia occurs, the medical negligence of a doctor is often to blame.
In many cases, doctors fail to properly monitor the condition of the fetus during pregnancy and delivery. They may also fail to identify or prevent bacterial infections, entanglement in the umbilical cord and placental abruption. A detailed evaluation may reveal that the doctor let the delivery go too long, or should have recognized fetal distress and performed a C-section.
Legal action can hold doctors accountable for their mistakes. As experienced lawyers, we also find that, in addition to gaining a sense of justice, legal action is often the best way for parents to obtain the financial resources to support their child’s needs.
