What is anoxic brain injury?

An anoxic brain injury occurs when your brain is deprived of oxygen and this leads to brain damage. When oxygen is prevented from entering the brain partially or completely, brain cells can die which can lead to permanent, life-altering brain injury.  The following causes, along with the details of the specific incidenc, may be grounds for an anoxic brain injury claim:

Medical negligence or surgical mistake

Near-drowning accident (sometimes leading to premises liability claims)

Strangulation, choking, or suffocation. For example, a defective product like a crib or stroller that injures your child.
