Did Your Newborn Experience A Brain Injury?

Hypoglycemic Brain Injury

Minnesota Birth Injury Attorneys

Not all brain injuries are caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain. For a newborn, low blood sugar levels can be just as dangerous as a lack of oxygen, leading to significant brain damage. This type of condition is referred to as neonatal hypoglycemic brain injury.

If your child suffered a neonatal hypoglycemic brain injury, you deserve to know whether malpractice was involved. Our Minnesota birth injury attorneys have the resources, tools, and knowledge to properly investigate your case and take legal action on your behalf. For over three decades, we have fought for the injured. We have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for children and their families after they suffered serious birth injuries, and we are ready to fight for you.

We can address neonatal hypoglycemic brain injury caused by:

  • Failure to diagnose neonatal hypoglycemia.
  • Failure to properly treat low blood sugar in a newborn.
  • Failure to monitor a newborn’s blood sugar levels after delivery.
  • Failure to identify an infant who is at risk of developing hypoglycemia.
  • Failure to promptly respond to neonatal hypoglycemia.

About Neonatal Hypoglycemic Brain Injury

It is crucial for a newborn to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. Most receive the glucose they need through early and frequent feedings, but if they are not properly monitored and tested after delivery and glucose levels drop too low, this can lead to brain damage. Glucose is essential to brain development and is one of the only sources of energy for the developing brain. Insufficient glucose in the blood will inhibit brain development and will cause brain cells to begin to die off.

When neonatal hypoglycemia is not properly identified and treated, brain damage may occur. Our Minnesota birth injury lawyers know how to identify signs of obstetrical malpractice as it relates to mismanagement of hypoglycemia in infants. We can expose failures to diagnose and treat dangerously low blood sugar levels after delivery. We can hold at-fault medical professionals responsible, helping families recover the compensation they need for their children’s care.
