What are Anoxic & Hypoxic Brain Injuries?

Oxygen deprivation issues can cause two types of brain injuries:

  • Anoxic: A complete lack of oxygen being supplied to the brain will cause brain cell death within about four minutes, which is an anoxic brain injury.
  • Hypoxic: When brain cells are harmed but not necessarily killed due to restricted – but not totally stopped – oxygen intake, it causes a hypoxic brain injury.

The consequences of an anoxic or hypoxic brain injury can vary dramatically between one case and another. How long the brain was starved of oxygen, the extent of oxygen deprivation, and how quickly correct medical treatments were applied can all change the effects of hypoxia or oxygen deprivation in the brain.

In some cases, anoxic or hypoxic brain injuries can heal relatively quickly and with little aftercare. Other hypoxia patients require a lifetime of rehabilitative therapy to restore and keep motor control and advanced brain functions. A severe case of hypoxia can cause death within minutes.

Medical Malpractice Can Cause Anoxic & Hypoxic Brain Injuries

Oxygen deprivation to the brain, whether partial or total, can be caused by many unacceptable medical errors. As your Florida anoxia and hypoxia injury attorneys, we can investigate your symptoms and the details of your medical care to pinpoint what went wrong and if it constitutes medical malpractice.

Issues that can lead to an anoxic or hypoxic brain injury include:

  • Failing to diagnose a heart attack or cardiac arrest
  • Failing to notice and clear a foreign object in a patient’s throat
  • Providing a patient with unsafe drugs, causing an overdose or reaction
  • Surgical errors that cause sudden blood pressure drops
  • Anesthesia errors, such as anesthesia overdose

Fighting for Every Penny of Compensation

Living with an anoxic or hypoxic brain injury can be difficult. You deserve full compensation for your injuries and lasting hardships.

In your anoxia or hypoxia injury claim, we can seek damages to help pay for:

  • All medical bills associated with the injury
  • Years of rehabilitative therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Lowered life expectancy
  • Lessened enjoyment of life
  • New daily hardships

If you lost a loved one due to an anoxic or hypoxic brain injury, then we can also file a wrongful death claim on your behalf. Additional or different damages may become available in a wrongful death claim, such as funeral costs and the emotional trauma you have experienced due to the loss of your loved one.
