$6.9 Million for an Infant with Cerebral Palsy from Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalpathy (HIE); Birth Asphyxia
Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE); Birth Asphyxia Attorney
A young mother went to a hospital in labor. Residents and nurses watched as the fetal monitor showed the baby's condition deteriorating over 12 hours. When the attending doctor finally arrived at the hospital, she chastised the resident doctor in front of the mother for not notifying her sooner. The baby was delivered by emergency C-section but had sustained brain injury from hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (birth asphyxia) and birth anoxia (lack of oxygen to tissues or organs).
