Cerebral Palsy and Birth Injury Attorneys in Connecticut
After a birth injury occurs, a child may be suffering from cerebral palsy. There are different ways in which cerebral palsy can manifest, such as resulting from hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE). This is a condition in which the brain as a whole does not receive enough oxygen. HIE is often fatal, with as little as five minutes of oxygen deprivation resulting in brain cell death. This can cause long-term damage in children, including intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities, as well as cerebral palsy.
At Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder, PC, our lawyers are sensitive to the needs of parents who are dealing with the injury to or death of their child as the result of HIE. Often, HIE is preventable and occurs as the result of medical malpractice. We are aggressive in our pursuit of a malpractice lawsuit in these cases, as the medical professionals who are responsible had a duty to protect the safety and health of the parents and children. When mistakes and errors occur, it has a lasting impact on a family. Contact us today to learn more about HIE, cerebral palsy and other birth injuries.
