Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE), also known as birth asphyxia, intrapartum asphyxia, or neonatal encephalopathy (NE), is a traumatic birth injury caused by neonatal oxygen deprivation around the time of labor and delivery. Because HIE often results in lifelong physical, intellectual, emotional, and social disabilities, Michigan victims with this traumatic birth injury greatly benefit from financial compensation from a successful HIE medical malpractice lawsuit.

Causes of Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)

Michigan Birth Trauma & Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Michigan lawyers that handle HIE casesThe Michigan HIE lawyers at Michigan Cerebral Palsy Attorneys have decades of experience determining the causes of their clients’ hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy injuries. Our birth trauma attorneys have handle HIE cases related to vacuum extractor and forceps injuries, mismanaged C-sections, premature deliveries, poorly managed high-risk pregnancies, and more.

Several complications and conditions associated with pregnancy, labor, and delivery can, when mismanaged by a medical professional, lead to hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. If a mother or baby are injured as a result of a medical professional’s failure to properly diagnose, manage, treat, and/or prevent HIE, it is medical malpractice. The following pregnancy complications can, without adequate medical care, lead to hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy:

  • Nuchal cords, prolapsed umbilical cords, short umbilical cords, and/or compressed umbilical cords
  • Intracranial hemorrhages (brain bleeds)
  • Delayed emergency Cesarean section delivery
  • Uterine rupture
  • Placental abruption
  • Preeclampsia
  • Fetal monitoring errors
  • Too much amniotic fluid (oligohydramnios) or too little amniotic fluid (Polyhydramnios)
  • Many others

Treatment and Therapy for Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy

HIE Lawyers Securing Funds for Michigan Families

HIE Treatment: The hypothermia treatment is the only form of treatment for newborn babies with hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. Because of the specific eligibility requirements for hypothermia treatment, many babies with hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy do not receive the treatment. These individuals (as well as those with residual impairments after hypothermia treatment) often require lifelong, supportive therapy and rehabilitation.

HIE Therapy: Common therapy programs and techniques for HIE include physical therapy, occupational therapy, recreational therapy, speech-language pathology, complementary and alternative therapy, and more.

Therapy for HIE can be very expensive and time-consuming. If your child’s hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy resulted from medical malpractice, our Michigan HIE lawyers can help secure the funds necessary to pay for treatment, therapy, and lifestyle supports. Our highly-regarded Michigan hypoxic ischemic lawyers have helped numerous families affected by hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy diagnoses obtain the funds necessary for proper rehabilitation.
