Lack of the appropriate amount of oxygen in the body is known as Hypoxia.  This is a medical condition resulting from a lack of oxygen. It is a leading cause of serious injuries and brain damaged babies. The attorneys at Dalli & Marino, LLP,  have successfully represented the families of new born babies injured as a result of medical malpractice and we have litigated many cases in which brain damage in babies was caused by negligence on the part of obstetricians, obstetrical nurses and other medical professionals.

Lack of oxygen during birth can lead to cerebral palsy and other serious conditions that your child may have to contend with for the rest of his or her life. An experienced brain injury lawyer can help your family recover the proper compensation due to birth injury.

Cerebral palsy and other birth injuries can result from complications during prenatal care, labor, delivery, or newborn care. The most serious injuries can be caused by oxygen deprivation to the infant’s brain. The failure to perform a cesarean section, abuse of Pitocin, misuse of forceps or vacuum during delivery, or miscalculation of the size of the baby can all contribute to serious brain injuries of the baby. Sadly, most of these problems can be prevented, since most birth injuries are caused by a doctor failing to timely address problems during labor and delivery.

In addition to our attorneys, Dalli & Marino, LLP retains board-certified physicians and  professional registered nurses who assist in reviewing your case and can help you to understand the full medical scope of the injury. We have resources at our disposal, including expert witnesses in hypoxia and obstetrics, who help us build compelling cases for our clients. Our firm conducts exhaustive investigations, and we retain the most qualified experts to bring a comprehensive level of expertise to surpass that on the other side.

We also hire expert accountants and financial analysts because many birth injury cases have their own set of associated losses including lost wages, the cost of care and many other monetary costs. In order to accurately assess what these costs will be for the remainder of a victim’s life.

If you believe your child’s birth injury was the result of medical malpractice contact Dalli & Marino, LLP to discuss your case.
