About Johnston Law Firm


We Handle Cerebral Hypoxia Cases in Portland and Throughout Oregon

Cerebral hypoxia occurs when a person’s brain is deprived of oxygen. Sadly, it is one of the most devastating types of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). It is a type of injury that can occur in a number of different situations — potentially including medical malpractice and birth injury cases.

At the Johnston Law Firm, LLC, our Portland cerebral hypoxia lawyer has experience handling the full range of medical negligence claims, including birth injury cases. We are committed advocates for injury victims and their families. If you, your family member, or your infant suffered from brain hypoxia and any subsequent injuries or complications, we can help. Please contact our legal team for free, fully confidential legal guidance.

The Devastating Effects of Brain Hypoxia

Even if the loss of oxygen to the brain is only temporarily, the effects can be truly catastrophic. An infant’s body can only compensate for loss of oxygen for a very short period of time. If an infant is forced to deal with impaired blood flow to the brain during birth or any type of interruption in breathing or poor oxygen supply, it is always a very serious problem. Infant hypoxia and infant anoxia can result in lifelong injuries. In fact, deprivation of oxygen — including intrapartum asphyxia — could result in cerebral palsy.

Medical Malpractice and Cerebral Hypoxia

During birth, cerebral hypoxia could occur in a number of different ways. It is imperative that medical professionals take exceptional care to protect a vulnerable newborn and the mother. Brain hypoxia can be the result of an injury from umbilical cord complications. Under Oregon law, physicians and other medical professionals have a duty to provide high-quality medical care to patients. If your loved one suffered cerebral hypoxia, brain anoxia, or any related injury or medical complications, you should consult with an experienced Portland medical malpractice lawyer immediately. You have legal options available and your family deserves justice and financial support.
