HIE

Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE) Claims

Experienced Louisville Birth Injury Attorneys

Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) is a type of brain injury that can occur during childbirth if there is insufficient oxygen/blood flow to the brain. A prolonged and difficult labor, childbirth complication, or other scenario that leaves the baby’s brain without sufficient oxygen can cause HIE, triggering a cascade reaction of brain cell death and permanent disabilities.

Dolt, Thompson, Shepherd & Conway, PSC holds negligent medical professionals accountable when their acts (or failures to act) cause HIE. Fighting for children across Kentucky, we pursue the level of financial compensation that will provide for an injured child’s lifelong care. We spare no effort in pursuing justice for preventable birth injuries, and we provide our legal representation with no upfront cost to our clients. Our Louisville birth injury lawyers work on a contingent fee basis, which means our clients pay nothing at all unless we recover a settlement or award on their behalf.

Medical Malpractice & HIE

Not all cases of HIE are caused by medical malpractice. These are highly technical matters that require medical knowledge in order to determine whether appropriate care was rendered, and, if it was not, proof of negligence or wrongdoing. With in-house medical staff to help with case investigation and preparation, as well as access to experts in obstetrics and brain injuries, our Louisville birth injury attorneys know how to link medical malpractice to HIE and pursue just compensation.

The following are examples of malpractice/negligence that could cause HIE:

  • Delayed C-section
  • C-section errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Failure to diagnose macrosomia or cephalopelvic disproportion
  • Mismanaged shoulder dystocia
  • Failure to respond to fetal distress
  • Misuse of forceps or vacuum extractor
  • Mismanagement of placental complications
  • Mismanaged high-risk pregnancy
  • Failure to diagnose/treat infection in a newborn
