New Mexico Lawyers for Infant Hypoxic/Anoxic Brain Injuries

If Your Baby’s Future Has Been Threatened, Ask Our Team How We Can Help.

Hypoxic/anoxic brain injuries occur when a difficult labor disrupts the blood flow to an infant’s brain. During childbirth, blood transfer from the mother is the only way a baby can get oxygen. When that connection is stopped or impeded, the baby’s health is at stake.

This is a serious and potentially life-threatening form of birth injury that may leave a child with lifelong disabilities. At Bandas Law Firm, our New Mexico birth injury attorneys are committed to helping children who have suffered hypoxic/anoxic injuries as a result of malpractice, negligence, and wrongdoing. We fight for the compensation their families need to provide for their immediate and long-term care.

Understanding Hypoxic/Anoxic Brain Injuries

A few minutes of oxygen loss will deprive brain cells of the energy they need to survive, causing mass cell death. Every part of the body needs oxygen, but around one-fifth of what we require is for the brain. When it is lacking, cells themselves will shut down—and when that happens in the brain, there is no way to reverse that process. Even worse, these brain injuries can cause cascading cell death for hours or even days after birth. Hypothermia therapy may be able to decrease the amount of brain damage an infant experiences, but victims are still likely to face physical, cognitive, or psychological challenges for the rest of their life.

Hypoxic/anoxic injuries occur when there is a partial (hypoxic) or total (anoxic) lack of oxygen to the brain. Also known as HAI, these injuries may lead to disabilities that require extensive treatment for the baby’s entire life.

Causes of Hypoxic/Anoxic Injuries in Labor & Delivery

When hypoxic/anoxic brain injuries occur during childbirth, they may have the following causes:

Obstetricians know how quickly complications that threaten a baby’s oxygen supply can occur during labor. If your doctor failed to recognize the warning signs, our team at Bandas Law Firm is here to hold them accountable. Brain injury cases are always highly technical and therefore need a skilled and knowledgeable team to fight them. Not only do we have experience in such cases, but we also work with the top experts in the U.S. on birth trauma to identify and expose obstetrical malpractice.

If your baby has suffered a hypoxic/anoxic brain injury, don’t wait to learn your legal rights. Call our New Mexico team at (505) 393-6303 for your free consultation.
