How Birth Injuries Occur

Birth injuries are complications that arise during labor, delivery or both. They can result in many problems for the newborn baby, and these problems can be mild or severe. Some of the main causes of a birth injury include:

  • Oxygen deprivation
  • Bleeding in the skull or brain
  • Mechanical trauma
  • Medical mistakes, such as delay in performing a C-section or failure to properly anticipate the size of the child

These issues are all avoidable, and the doctors and nurses caring for mother and baby have a responsibility to ensure that the utmost care is given to avoid these issues. Our firm has the resources necessary to investigate and prove through evidence the negligence, carelessness and mistakes that could have been avoided in order to secure maximum compensation.

As a result of these issues, a number of common birth injuries could occur such as:

  • Brachial plexus palsy
  • Brain damage
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb's palsy
  • Fractured collar bone
  • Klumpke's palsy
  • Temporary paralysis

Birth injuries like cerebral palsy result from brain damage caused by many factors, including medical malpractice. Cerebral palsy affects the body's ability to control movement and posture, often resulting in seizures, hearing deficits, behavioral problems and intellectual impairment. Although this condition can never be reversed, it can be managed with a lifetime of medical care, including medication, therapy and, in some cases, surgery.
