HIE - Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy

What Should I Do If My Child Has HIE Due to Medical Malpractice?

You should immediately get in touch with our Baltimore City hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy attorneys if you suspect your child may be the victim of medical malpractice. We can review the circumstances of your child’s birth, including any actions taken (or not taken) by your medical team, and advise whether you have a strong case. 

You only have a limited time to take legal action. In Maryland, you have five years from the date of the injury (typically the birth) or three years from the date HIE was discovered to file a medical malpractice lawsuit, whichever comes first. Keep in mind that some families will only learn their child has HIE after several years. Should HIE complications result in death, you will have three years from the date of your loved one’s passing to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.

A successful HIE lawsuit can help you recover compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages (including reductions in future earning capacity)
  • Physical pain and mental suffering

At Miller Stern Lawyers, we emphasize a personal approach and strive to build long-lasting connections with each of our clients. Our Baltimore City hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy lawyers will always fight to maximize your recovery, and we will continue to keep in touch even after your case is over.
