Anoxic Brain Injuries in San Diego
Experienced San Diego Brain Injury Attorney
The human brain, although encased in a strong, protective skull, can be injured when there is a lack of blood flow and oxygen. When the brain is deprived of oxygen, the person has sustained an “anoxic brain injury.” Depending on the amount of the brain that has been injured, deficits can range from subtle memory problems to inability to care for oneself (feed, bathe, clothe).

- Birthing complications
- Misdiagnosed transient ischemic attacks (TIA – mini-strokes)
- Misdiagnosed and delayed treatment of strokes and their causes
- Ventilator problems
- Negligent monitoring by nurses
- Sepsis or massive infection causing the heart to stop

Depending on the nature and extent of the damage to brain tissue, anoxic brain injuries can cause very subtle changes to the brain. Proving the cause of a brain injury or the nature and extent of the impact of the brain injury on the victim requires very specialized experts: radiologists and neuroradiologists to determine the location and extent of the injury; neurologist and neuropsychologists to correlate the brain injury to loss of function; physiatrists to determine future care needs; life care planners to calculate the cost of future care; vocational rehabilitation experts to determine if the injured victim can return to work; and then an economist to calculate the full amount of economic damages. An experienced brain injury attorney will already have a team of experts.
