​​​​​​​Birth Injury

In spite of the exponential increase of knowledge in medical technology, pharmacology, anatomy, physiology and nutrition, many mothers and infants still suffer birth injuries. Three percent of children born in the U.S. suffer from birth defects. Though some injuries may be considered as minor injuries from which the child can recover, there are injuries that can cause a lifetime of disability.

Unfortunately some of these injuries may have been caused by a mistake, negligence, incompetence and failure to follow the appropriate standard of care during labor and delivery that can be attributed to the doctor, nurse or other staff.

Common errors during labor and delivery happen. Unfortunately, these can lead to birth defects, debilitating injuries, and even the death of the mother, the baby or both.

These may include the following:
    A mistake in prescribing medication with a dangerous side effects
    Misdiagnosis or late diagnosis of:
        Ectopic Pregnancy
        Prenatal Asphyxia
        Infection or Serious Viral Illness
        High Blood Pressure
        Eclampsia
        Abruptio Placenta
    Inability to properly respond to threats on the health of mother or child such as:
        Prolonged delivery, leading to cerebral palsy or other brain damage
        Improper or excessive use of forceps or vacuum during delivery, leading to cerebral palsy or Erb’s palsy
        Delayed caesarean section operation during a traumatic birth
        Failure to make a thorough monitoring of mother and newborn's health after a traumatic birth

Birth injuries cause trauma to the mother, the child and the entire family, especially with the expensive cost of medical care required. You can find out if you qualify to seek compensation.
