Our bodies need oxygen to survive. In fact, irreversible brain and other organ damage can begin within minutes of oxygen deprivation. When there is a lower-than-normal amount of oxygen in the blood, this is referred to as hypoxemia. A lower than normal amount of oxygen in tissues of the body is known as hypoxia. A complete lack of oxygen is called anoxia. Hypoxia, hypoxemia and anoxia during pregnancy, labor or delivery can have disastrous results, leading to permanent disabilities, brain damage, cerebral palsy, and even death. It is important for a lack of oxygen to be immediately identified and treated to prevent undue harm.
At the Law Firm of Michael H. Bereston, we are passionate about helping children who have been left injured or disabled as a result of hypoxia, hypoxemia or anoxia before, during, or after labor and delivery. Michael Bereston has 30 years of trial experience and uses this to provide effective legal representation as a birth injury lawyer. We will be honest in our approach to help you to get the right answers to make the right choices.
