Pittsburgh Oxygen Deprivation Attorney
Some of the most serious and devastating birth injuries are those involving oxygen deprivation. Anytime the infant, mother or both are deprived of any oxygen supply, it can result in cells dying — most importantly, brain cells. Brain cell damage can permanently cause a loss in motor skills, functioning and cognitive abilities.
If your newborn suffered from oxygen deprivation at any time either pre-birth or during a delivery, and you suspect that it has caused a birth injury, it is very important that you reach out to an attorney as soon as possible.
