Hypoglycemic Brain Injury in Infants

Contact Our New Hampshire Birth Injury Attorneys for a Free Consultation

Neonatal hypoglycemia (NH) is a condition in which an infant’s blood sugar (glucose) levels drop dangerously low. If not properly addressed, NH can lead to hypoglycemic brain injury, resulting in permanent brain damage. All too often, such injuries are the result of medical negligence. This can be the case when a nurse fails to monitor the mother’s glucose levels during delivery, or when a doctor fails to take the proper precautionary measures with an expectant mother who is diabetic.

If your child suffered a hypoglycemic brain injury and you believe medical malpractice played a role, contact Abramson, Brown & Dugan to speak with a birth injury attorney in New Hampshire. With decades of legal experience, our team of legal professionals, registered nurses, and other healthcare experts can answer your questions and help you determine the best course of legal action. We are here to serve as your advocate throughout every stage of the process.

Reach out to the firm today by calling (603) 323-4622. We offer free initial consultations and contingent fees, meaning you don’t pay unless we win your case.

What Are the Long-Term Effects of Hypoglycemic Brain Injury?

Like all brain injuries, hypoglycemic brain injuries are incredibly serious. The long-term effects can range greatly depending on the extent and severity of the damage, but typically have lasting consequences that irreversibly alter the victim’s life.

Hypoglycemic brain injuries can lead to:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Intellectual disabilities
  • Developmental delays
  • Seizures
  • Epilepsy
  • Problems seeing
  • Neuropsychiatry disorders

Caring for a child with a hypoglycemic brain injury typically involves extensive medical treatment, ongoing physical and cognitive therapy, and life-long medical care. Parents often have to alter their work schedules to care for their children. The lost income and medical bills for immediate and ongoing treatment can see insurmountable. Our firm can help you fight for the fair compensation you are owed for these and other damages.

When Negligence Causes Infant Injury

Hypoglycemic brain injuries can occur as a result of many different factors. Unfortunately, medical malpractice often plays a role in infant injury. Failure to diagnose, treat, or respond to signs of neonatal hypoglycemia can have devastating consequences. When doctors, nurses, and hospitals fail to uphold a reasonable standard of care, they can be held responsible for their negligence.

Abramson, Brown & Dugan has achieved more successful medical malpractice settlements and verdicts than any other law firm in New Hampshire. Our hypoglycemic brain injury lawyers understand this particular area of law, as well as the complexities involved in these types of cases. We offer compassionate, personalized legal counsel and aggressive advocacy for our clients.
