Epilepsy and Neonatal Injuries
Our Attorneys Demand Justice
Epilepsy is a common medical condition that affects many people of all ages, including newborn children. In many cases, newborn babies have epilepsy due to mistakes made by medical professionals soon after the child's birth. That's why epilepsy is an unfortunately common neonatal injury.
Children with epilepsy often suffer from severe seizures. The types of seizures children with epilepsy experience can cover a wide range. However, most seizures can be categorized into two major groups - generalized onset seizures and focal onset seizures.
Generalized onset seizures affect both sides of the brain at the same time. Focal onset seizures affect a specific part of the brain. People who experience these seizures might be awake and aware (focal onset aware seizures) or confused about their surroundings (focal onset impaired awareness seizures).
There are many reasons why newborn children have epilepsy. In some cases, mistakes made by medical professionals that damage the child's brain result in children being born with epilepsy or developing the condition soon after they're born. Common causes of birth injuries and risk factors often associated with epilepsy include:
- Prolonged labor
- Infections and sepsis (before birth or soon after in hospital)
- Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE)
- Traumatic brain injury
There are many other reasons why children are born with epilepsy. And in each case, it's important to take strong legal action if someone else's negligent or reckless behavior resulted in your child's medical condition. That's why we want to meet with you as soon as possible.
