Was Your Child Born With HIE?

Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) is a birth injury caused by oxygen deprivation during labor or delivery. It can result in severe brain damage to the newborn and a lifetime of challenges for the family.

The Stone Law Group in Atlanta and Blakely represents families throughout Georgia and the Southeast affected by HIE and other types of birth injuries. If we think the doctor or hospital was negligent in causing your child's injury, we'll use the civil justice system to help you get you the compensation you will need to provide your child with the best possible future. Call 404-436-2766 to talk to a lawyer.

Was The Doctor Or Delivery Staff Negligent?

There is a risk to any medical procedure, and sometimes newborns can suffer severe brain injury even when the doctor and delivery staff did everything they were supposed to do. However, sometimes HIE results from preventable errors such as:

  • Negligent prenatal care
  • Lack of fetal monitoring during labor and delivery
  • Failure to recognize signs of fetal distress
  • Failure to perform a timely cesarean section

Symptoms of HIE may include bluish skin color, excess acid in the blood, poor feeding, lethargy, seizures, failure to respond to physical stimuli, and poor grasping and sucking reflexes.

Our lawyers will work with highly credentialed, well-respected and credible doctors to determine the cause of your child's injury. We will pay the upfront costs of developing your case, based on the hope that we can recover those expenses if we are successful.
