Class Action Lawsuit "Oxygen"

The Case

By a wrong treatment in the case of respiratory problems or interruptions immediately after birth thousands of infants die every year or suffer strong helath consequences. By following various recommendations and regulations, the treating physician was not supposed to ventilate an infant immediately with oxigen, but to wait up to 10 minutes with the oxigen ventilation and take other measures. This resulted in thousands of cases worldwide, in death or substantial consequential damage for infants due to lack of oxygen supply to the brain. In several researches it is proven that the mechanic respiration in these situations is not sufficient.

The plaintiffs are represented in the US and Europe by the law firm De Micco & Friends that is responsible for the case. Parents whose children were victims of the described treatment failure may be declared under the description of their personal case and may participate in the class action. Up to several thousand participants are expected by the summer, where the complaints are to be filed by the courts.
