What Is a Birth Injury?
Many complications can arise during the birth of a child that can affect their life. Some injuries are genetic or form in the womb, like cleft palates, Down syndrome, and several other neurological or physical conditions. Here is a discussion of one of the most common injuries, dislocation or damage to the brachial plexus.
However, some birth injuries are caused or worsened by inattention, negligence, and mistakes on the part of healthcare professionals. This can result in damage to delicate areas such as the clavicle or the hands and feet.
How Do Birth Injuries Happen?
A birth injury can appear or become more serious in a variety of ways. Common examples of how professionals can be negligent during childbirth include:
- Misuse of instruments during delivery
- Do not respond to bleeding, distress, or umbilical cord placement
- Do not anticipate complications related to baby or maternal health
- Delay ordering a caesarean section
Other circumstances like oxygen deprivation can be serious and could result in brain damage, limited motor function, and even death. If you suspect your child was injured during birth, you may want to consider reaching out to an attorney to discuss your legal options.
