Cerebral Hypoxia occurs when parts of the brain do not receive enough oxygen. Depending on how long the brain was deprived of oxygen, the symptoms can range from mild to severe. Mild symptoms of the condition may include inattentiveness, poor judgment and uncoordinated movements. More severe symptoms may leave a child in a coma, and may include severe brain damage and death.
Cerebral Palsy is actually a group of movement disorders — not just one. And Cerebral Palsy may have many different causes as well. These can include lack of oxygen to the unborn child, infections, premature birth and severe, untreated jaundice.
At The Donahey Law Firm, our lawyers understand the impact that this condition can have on children and their families. We know that families find their lives completely changed, and that children have difficulty completing everyday tasks, like moving around or talking to the people they love.
The True Costs of Cerebral Palsy and Cerebral Hypoxia
Cerebral Palsy and Cerebral Hypoxia can take a physical, emotional and financial toll on the lives of injured children and their families. Many parents worry about how their child will cope with a lifelong disability. They also worry about the cost of a lifetime of care. Getting the continuing care a child needs — even with the help of social services — can have a huge economic impact.
One of the best ways to reduce this impact is to hold negligent doctors and hospitals accountable for their actions. By filing a medical malpractice claim in the state of Ohio, you may be able to gain the financial stability it takes to care for a disabled child. The lawyers at The Donahey Law Firm can help.
