It is possible to sue for birth asphyxia. Birth asphyxia is a condition where babies do not receive enough oxygen right after being born or right before. The lack of oxygen can cause permanent damages or even kill a baby. Doctors and nurses may be sued for this, providing sufficient evidence. Such evidence might include not applying oxygen quickly enough, bad nurses being assigned, harmful medications, or failure to preform needed medical procedures.
- One very early and potentially devastating injury a child can experience is birth asphyxia, where a number of factories can cause the condition.
- Ways that can cause birth asphyxia includes umbilical cord or a defect in the baby’s airway or negligence of medical professionals.
- If medical professionals and hospitals have failed to care for your child in a competent manner, you may consult an attorney to sue the hospital or individuals.
“While the exact details vary from case to case, the bottom line is that birth asphyxia can have long-lasting, difficult, and expensive effects on a child and family.”
