Far too many childbirth injuries occur in the United States on a yearly basis. These birth injuries frequently leave the child with a lifelong disability. Devastating results such as cerebral palsy, nerve damage, brain damage, stunted growth, or death can occur.
Many of these birth injuries are often caused by preventable medical malpractice, such as negligence on the part of the doctor or health care provider. Call an experienced birth injury lawyer if your child has been injured during labor.
Some of the most common birth injuries include:
|Cerebral Palsy:||Brain damage caused at the time of birth by a restricted flow of oxygen to the brain during or after delivery. Cerebral Palsy is permanent. Speech, learning abilities and motor-skills are usually negatively affected.|
|Erb’s Palsy:||A paralysis of the arm caused by injury to the arm’s nerves surrounding the shoulder, usually resulting in surgery.|
|Uterine Rupture:||A tear in the wall of the uterus, most often at the site of a previous C-section incision. Results can often be life threatening.|
|Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy:||Brain damage caused by oxygen deprivation. HIE can be fatal. Brain cells can begin dying after four minutes without oxygen.|
