Common Causes And Forms Of Birth Injuries
Many doctors, nurses and health care facilities do a good job and follow proper guidelines when delivering a baby. Unfortunately, some may not take the proper steps or may falter in a stressful moment. Some deliveries, including those that use vacuum extraction or forceps, can result in physical injuries and brain damage. If the medical staff is not monitoring the child and mother properly throughout the birthing process, the child can suffer numerous injuries or infections. Certain medications that may have been prescribed by your doctor could also have resulted in birth defects or injuries to your child.
Through carelessness or outdated practices used by the medical staff, your child could suffer from:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Brain damage
- Shoulder dystocia
- Fetal distress
- Collapsed umbilical cord
- Elevated bilirubin
With adequate compensation, parents can help their children cope with these and other birth injuries through treatment, therapy and special education. Some children will need lifelong care after they have suffered a birth injury. Our attorneys are prepared to fight for the right results in your birth injury claim or lawsuit.
