Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE) Lawyer in New Jersey

HIE Birth Injury Lawsuits

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) around 2 out of every 1,000 children born at full term in the United States are affected by Infant Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE).

HIE is brain damage that occurs when a fetus’ brain fails to receive an adequate amount of oxygenated blood:

  • Hypoxia means inadequate oxygen supply.
  • Ischemia means insufficient blood flow.
  • Encephalopathy means it affects the brain.

HIE is a type of acquired brain injury, which means it is not congenital or hereditary. Instead, it may result from the negligence of physicians, nurses, or other health care providers who fail to meet the standard of care when treating mothers during pregnancy or childbirth.

If your child was diagnosed with hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy and you have concerns that it may have been caused by medical negligence, call Levinson Axelrod, P.A. Our award-winning New Jersey HIE attorneys can evaluate your case and whether you may have the ability to bring legal action.
