Contacting a birth injury solicitor is the first step in securing a better life for your loved one with hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy. This year alone, thousands of parents will have babies diagnosed with HIE from medical negligence.
Unfortunately, the majority of these families will never reach out for legal help, thereby missing the opportunity to learn how their child’s injuries occurred and secure the important funds necessary for future care and rehabilitation. No matter where you are in the process, we are here to help.
If one of the following scenarios applies to you, a family member, a friend, or another loved one, we encourage you to reach out to us with your legal questions, concerns, and case inquiries:
You know a baby who was diagnosed with HIE, cerebral palsy, brain damage, or another birth injury
A complication or error occurred during pregnancy, labour, delivery, or the neonatal period and you are worried about the baby’s health
Your baby is in the NICU and you feel as though a medical mistake occurred
You suspect that medical professionals failed to meet standards of care
Your child is missing developmental milestones
Why Should I Pursue Legal Help for My HIE Case?
Providing care for an individual with hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy is both financially and emotionally demanding. Because the associated injuries and disabilities of HIE are often so imposing, it is unfortunate to note how many cases of hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy result from acts of negligence on the parts of medical professionals.
Regrettably, most of these individuals with lifelong disabilities from hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy will never enquire about their legal options, and fewer will ever pursue legal action.
Pursuing legal action for your hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy case is the first step towards a life of equal opportunity, rehabilitation and well-being for your injured loved one. Compensation from a successful medical negligence lawsuit will allow your family to more easily afford the support and care you need, including special education, treatment, therapy, adaptive equipment, recreational opportunities, housing, alternative guardianship, care and more.
When our HIE solicitors secure a settlement for clients with permanent birth injuries and HIE, they work closely with economists, life-care planners and other experts to determine exactly what resources your family will need to live comfortably.
