Types Of Birth Injury

Childbirth can be a difficult experience for mother and child. Errors by doctors, nurses and other health care professionals can compound those difficulties. Medical malpractice contributes to any number of birth injuries, including:

  • Cerebral palsy - If a baby suffers trauma or is deprived of oxygen during childbirth, it can result in cerebral palsy. Misdiagnosis, failure to properly monitor and incorrect use of medical equipment could be the culprit.
  • Erb's palsy - This trauma is a form of brachial plexus injury and may be the result of medical malpractice during delivery. Brachial plexus injuries range from relatively mild and curable to severe and permanent.
  • Brain damage - When an infant's brain is deprived of oxygen due to reduced blood flow (cerebral ischemia), the result can be permanent brain damage. Oxygen deprivation can come from delivery errors, medication errors, untreated maternal infections and other preventable issues.
  • Fractures - Broken bones can result from medical negligence during childbirth. While many fractures heal with no long-term consequences, some result in nerve damage or permanent disability.
  • Wrongful death - The loss of mother or child during the birth process is an unimaginable tragedy. If you have experienced this, no amount of sympathy is enough. If you want answers, a birth injury lawyer can help you find them.
