Was Your Child Was Diagnosed With HIE?

About Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)

Our Minnesota Birth Injury Attorneys Can Help

If an infant does not get sufficient oxygen during labor or delivery, this can cause serious and irreversible brain damage. Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, or HIE, is a type of brain injury that can occur during childbirth due to oxygen deprivation to the brain. It is a leading cause of infant impairment and fatality in the United States.

If your son or daughter experienced brain damage during or after childbirth, talk to a Minnesota birth injury lawyer at Janet, Janet & Suggs. We represent children and families across the U.S. who have experienced HIE or other brain injuries due to obstetrical malpractice, and we have been doing so for over three decades. We have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for our clients in birth injury lawsuits, helping children get the ongoing and lifelong care they need.

Obstetrical Malpractice & HIE in Minnesota

HIE can be linked to malpractice in different ways:

  • Obstetrical malpractice, such as a delayed C-section or improper fetal monitoring during delivery, can cause HIE to occur.
  • HIE may be diagnosed too late, after significant brain damage has occurred.
  • HIE may be improperly treated (brain cooling and other methods may prevent further brain damage – if caught early enough).

When our Minnesota birth injury attorneys take on a case involving HIE, we will need to fully investigate to determine how malpractice may have been involved. This can be a complicated undertaking, due to the technical nature of these cases and the need to prove exactly how substandard care caused the injury. Fortunately, we have former nurses and doctors on our team to provide insight from a medical standpoint. Our attorneys are seasoned litigators and negotiators who know how to fight for fair compensation.

Put our skilled team on your side. Call (651) 243-2972 today.
