Asphyxia of Your Newborn

A severe oxygen deficiency during birth can cause a newborn to suffer asphyxia. If the deficiency is of long enough duration, it can cause brain injuries which manifest as delays in development and mental retardation. Cerebral palsy can often be traced back to asphyxia during birth. Other organs can also be affected such as the lungs, liver, kidneys and heart.

If the symptoms of asphyxia are not caught and treated immediately, it could lead to the wrongful death of your baby. Medical malpractice can play a role in birth injuries and labor and delivery problems for both the mother and child. If you notice the effects of a birth injury as your child ages, it is vital to contact a committed California birth injury attorney so that effective action can be taken before the statute of limitations runs out.
