Hawaii Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE) Lawyer

Contact an Experienced Birth Injury Attorney TOday!

What Is Hypoxic-ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)?

Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, or HIE, is a condition characterized by brain damage caused by a lack of oxygen and blood to the brain. This type of birth injury can cause developmental delays, seizures, cerebral palsy, and other conditions caused by brain damage.

Why Choose Our Hawaii HIE Attorneys

Did your child suffer from HIE after birth? Has your child been diagnosed with any type of brain injury? A Hawaii HIE lawyer at Davis Levin Livingston can talk to you about the circumstances surrounding your child’s birth and whether malpractice may be to blame. If substandard medical care led to your child’s condition, you may be entitled to financial compensation from the at-fault obstetrician, nurse, medical facility, or another party. Davis Levin Livingston can pursue the money you need for your child’s complete and ongoing care.

Contact the firm online or by phone at (808) 740-0633 for a free, confidential consultation with a Hawaii HIE attorney.

What Are The Causes & Symptoms of HIE?

HIE is caused by a lack of oxygen and blood to the brain, but how does this occur in the first place?

HIE may be linked to such forms of obstetrical malpractice as:

  • Delayed C-section
  • Improper management of shoulder dystocia
  • Failure to identify or respond to fetal distress
  • Failure to recommend a C-section in a high-risk pregnancy or delivery
  • Failure to address prolonged labor with a vacuum or forceps-assisted delivery
  • Failure to diagnose or treat preeclampsia
  • Failure to diagnose or treat maternal diabetes

Symptoms of hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy may include:

  • Low heart-rate
  • Poor muscle tone
  • Weak breathing
  • Bluish or pale color to the skin
  • Severe fussiness
  • Feeding difficulties
