Concerned that Your Child May Have Suffered a Birth Injury?

Not all birth injuries are immediately apparent at the time of delivery. There can be signs that something is wrong days, weeks, or even months later. It is important to consult with an attorney if you notice your child having trouble doing things other children his age are usually able to do, motor or coordination difficulties, skin discoloration, thin muscle mass, and other such indicators that seem somewhat persistent.

Common Birth Injuries that May Be the Result of Medical Errors

Nothing can guarantee that a birth will go perfectly but birth injuries caused by medical malpractice cannot go unanswered.

Common situations involving serious injury to a baby at or near the time of birth that were the result of negligence include:

  • Failure to follow standard delivery procedures
  • Mistakes during a cesarian section surgery
  • Failure to perform a c-section when it was needed
  • Failure to diagnose a problem 
  • Incorrect use of forceps or other medical tools during delivery
  • Failure to notice oxygen deprivation
  • Incorrect administration of drugs or medications
  • Failure to properly monitor the mother’s and/or child’s heart rate

Such medical malpractice can result in severe injuries such as:

  • Brain Injuries
  • Brachial Palsy
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Erb’s Palsy
  • Facial Paralysis
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Clavicle Fractures
  • Deformities
  • Permanent Disabilities

Who Can Be Held Liable When Birth Injuries Occur?

Part of the job of your injury lawyer is to determine who is at fault after a birth injury. This shows the importance of a thorough investigation to really gather evidence and effectively show all parties who were negligent. This can include any number of medical personnel involved in the pre-natal care or at the time of the delivery as well as the facility where the medical care or birth took place. Exploring all avenues for rightful compensation means looking into the actions of individual healthcare providers and hospitals or other medical facilities. A birth injury lawyer investigates for any negligence or wrongdoing that contributed to you or your child being hurt.
