The United States National Institutes of Health (NIH) estimates that Infant Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE), a birth injury caused by reduced blood flow and / or a lack of oxygen to the brain, affects around 2 in every 1,000 full term births in the United States. If your doctor fails to diagnose or respond to the lack of oxygen fast enough, it could easily lead to permanent brain damage, cerebral palsy, and even death.

Without proper monitoring, your infant could suffer from HIE at any point of the pregnancy, delivery, or after it’s been born.

Causes During Delivery
With proper monitoring, doctors can detect whether or not your fetus or infant is at risk of suffering from HIE. There are several treatment options available to combat HIE and provide their vital organs with oxygen, but all options need to be administered as soon as possible to be effective. If your doctor fails to diagnose HIE in time, your fetus or infant could suffer from permanent, life-threatening damage.
Unexpected complications can arise any time your doctor fails to monitor you and your fetus during the pregnancy, and when those complications lead to permanent brain damage or even death, you have the right to file a claim to ensure that your child can receive the medical care they need.
