HYPOXIC BRAIN INJURY LAWYER IN PHOENIX
Skilled Advocacy for Families of Children Who Have Suffered Hypoxic Brain Injuries
Hypoxia is a reduction in the amount of oxygen to any part of the body. When the part of the body not receiving sufficient oxygen is the brain, it can result in brain damage. When a fetus suffers a hypoxic brain injury during labor or delivery, the baby is often left with a devastating lifelong disability.
Caring for a child with a severe brain injury can be incredibly expensive, requiring speech therapy, physical rehabilitation and long-term care. When an infant suffers from a birth injury, we are here to investigate whether reasonable nursing or physician care could have prevented that injury. If you feel that your child may have suffered a hypoxic brain injury due to the carelessness of a doctor or nurse, a respected hypoxic brain injury attorney at our Phoenix office can discuss with you the options available to your child and your family.
Experienced Phoenix Medical Malpractice Attorney
Traumatic injury to mother or child during pregnancy can cause fetal brain damage, as can certain drugs. Umbilical cord entanglement during delivery and failure to timely perform a Caesarian section (C-section) can also lead to hypoxic brain injury. The experienced trial lawyers at Palumbo Wolfe & Palumbo are here to determine the cause of your child's brain injury and to help you receive full and fair compensation if a healthcare provider was the cause of those injuries. While it may be tempting to simply negotiate with insurance companies on your own, this is never recommended. Such negotiations will often lead to your case being dismissed, delayed or settled for much less than the desired amount. After suffering from such a traumatic event, you deserve to be properly compensated -- we can help.
