Yes, you can sue the Michigan doctor for the failure to diagnose anoxic encephalopathy. Anoxic encephalopathy is classified medically as a birth injury wherein the infant fails to receive ample quality of glucose and oxygen to the brain. The lack of oxygen and vital nutrients results in serious damage to the infant’s brain. This type of brain injury can be permanent and have lifelong effects on your child and the care needed for your child over his or her lifetime.
Doctors and nurses should be highly trained to recognize the common symptoms of anoxic encephalopathy. This includes both symptoms before birth and at the time of delivery. When a doctor or nurse fails to diagnose anoxic encephalopathy, the injuries or harm to the child can be devastating.
