What is a Birth Injury?
A birth injury is when a doctor or other medical staff is negligent in providing proper care during the birth of your child ultimately causing injury to your baby. Birth injuries can be caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain, infection and physical trauma during labor and delivery. The injuries that result can range from minor bumps and bruises, to major life-altering injuries that can last a lifetime. Common types of birth injuries include:
- Brain damage (including bleeds)
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Premature birth
These injuries are on the severe end of the spectrum. As a result of these injuries, your child may face challenges and adversities throughout their entire life, as well as the expenses that come with living with these kinds of preventable injuries. Our experienced and compassionate attorneys are here for you. We will advocate for you and your baby.
Causes of Birth Injuries
Parents of a baby with a birth injury, despite the severity, may be entitled to compensation for emotional injury, physical injury and financial injury.
Lack of oxygen is one of the most common sources of birth injuries. But there are other causes of permanent damage to your newborn, including the following:
- Misdiagnosing or mistreating infection
- Delaying or failing to order a C-section
- Abnormal issues with the uterus or placenta
- Fetal heart problems
- Using forceps incorrectly
