Brain Damage From Cerebral Anoxia

Cerebral anoxia occurs when oxygen to the brain is completely cut off, leading to high chances of irreversible brain damage or even death. Brain cells deprived of oxygen start to die within minutes. An influx of sodium also occurs, which can lead to swelling of the brain. This can result in both neurological and psychological damage.

If a work-related accident or bodily trauma caused by another killed or left a loved one permanently brain damaged due to cerebral anoxia, we can help. Meshbesher Law Firm takes action on your behalf so you or your loved one can obtain compensation for the many damages done.

Cerebral Anoxia Causes

While there are a number of causes outside of accidents, such as respiratory problems, many major accidents involving negligence can cause cerebral anoxia. These include:

  • Near-drowning accidents
  • Carbon-monoxide poisoning due to faulty furnaces or other gas-powered items that should not expel carbon monoxide or a defective carbon monoxide detector
  • Smoke inhalation from a fire that begins due to faulty electrical work or broken appliances, or a fire that spreads due to defective smoke detectors
  • Oxygen deprivation of a baby during delivery, often resulting in cerebral palsy
  • Accidents that resulted in losing significant amounts of blood, including car accidents, workplace injuries and injuries caused by negligence
  • Medical malpractice resulting in oxygen deprivation

Compensation To Cover Soaring Expenses

Cerebral anoxia can result in crippling, lifelong expenses. The total cost of hospital bills, prescription drugs, physical therapy and in-home care can easily run hundreds of thousands of dollars, much of which insurance may not cover. This presents a significant financial and emotional burden for you and your loved ones.
