Common Birth Injuries Resulting from Medical Negligence
The birth of a newborn baby should be a joyous occasion. Your tiny baby depends on you, especially when unforeseen health conditions arise; a baby injured at birth may face a lifetime of limitations, health difficulties, and challenges. The toll on your family can be overwhelming both emotionally and financially. A newborn requires care during the first few days of life as they are delicate and their bodies and immune systems may be vulnerable to physical damage, viruses or bacteria. There are many causes of birth injuries including:
- Fetal distress
- Breech birth
- Shoulder dystocia (when a baby's head and shoulder get stuck beyond their mother's pubic bone)
- Erb's Palsy
- Cerebral Palsy
- Brain damage
- Brachial plexus injuries
Some of these conditions could have been avoided if the accepted standard of care had been applied by the medical professionals attending the birth.

A serious birth injury may be the result of medical negligence. A medical professional may not have properly screened for preventable complications, or they fail to diagnose or treat problems that may affect your baby's development. They may have failed to realize that your baby was in distress during labor, and taken action too late to avoid the injury. Contact my office today to schedule a free consultation.
