Some Types of Birth Injuries Include:
Cerebral Palsy is a brain injury caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain or by infection causing damage to the brain, seizures, cognitive deficits, inability to eat, spasticity in the arms or legs, and some severe cases, inability to breathe without ventilator assistance. It is very expensive to care for a child with cerebral palsy. Medical bills alone could exceed hundreds of thousands of dollars each year.
A great number of babies have Cerebral Palsy as a result of mistakes or malpractice by medical personnel, either during the prenatal office visits and/or during labor and delivery. These birth injuries are preventable, and as such, negligent in the eyes of the law.
Brachial Plexus Palsy
A baby’s nerves run through the neck, under their shoulders, through the armpits, and into the arms. During the delivery process, these nerves can be torn, leaving the child with permanent disabilities or with a deformation of their arm, shoulder or hand. This condition is known as a Brachial Plexus injury, or Erb’s Palsy. Unfortunately, this is often caused by medical professionals during childbirth, constituting a medical malpractice claim.
Other Birth Injuries
Tragically, many babies are injured during childbirth by the instruments a doctor uses to deliver the baby. These instruments, when used improperly, can cause skull fractures, bleeding, spinal cord injuries, and facial scarring or deformations. Also, the mother can be injured by drugs being administered incorrectly, or by medical professionals neglecting to monitor her condition during childbirth. Such is the case with a torn placenta or ruptured uterus.
