How Will an Attorney Help My Case?
An attorney is going to be an invaluable resource for an anoxic brain injury victim and their family. An attorney has the resources and legal experience necessary to thoroughly investigate the case.
An attorney can:
- Ensure their client is seen by a trusted brain injury expert who can fully evaluate the severity of the injury.
- Obtain any evidence necessary to prove liability, including video or photo surveillance, statements from eyewitnesses to the incident, accident reports, and more.
- Negotiate with every party involved to reach a fair settlement on behalf of the client or prepare the case for trial if necessary, to secure compensation.
Understanding Anoxic Brain Injuries
Brain cells begin to die after approximately three to four minutes of oxygen deprivation. Anoxic brain injuries are those caused by a complete lack of oxygen being provided to the brain. This is a separate type of injury separate from hypoxic brain injuries, which form due to a restriction of the oxygen to the brain that causes gradual death or impairment of brain cells.
There are various types of anoxic brain injuries:
- Anemic anoxia: This refers to what can happen if the blood cannot properly carry enough oxygen in the body, thereby leading to brain oxygen deprivation.
- Toxic anoxia: This refers to when chemicals or poisons hinder the body’s ability to receive oxygen from blood cells.
- Anoxic anoxia: This is caused by a lack of oxygen in the air, resulting in the suffocation of a victim.
Each of these injuries can be caused by the careless, negligent, or intentional actions of others. Anytime somebody causes severe trauma to the head or causes severe blood loss to a victim, an anoxic brain injury is a possibility.
Available Compensation for This Injury
