Ocala Birth Injuries

The birthing process is a vulnerable time for all involved, but most of all for the newborn baby. Something as simple as too much force, pulling wrong, or not caring for the medical instruments used in the procedure can cause a lifetime of disability and pain for a child, and with it a mountain of medical expenses.

Medical facilities are not always forthright when mistakes occur, and parents with children who suffered birth injuries are often left wondering if their child’s injuries were simple misfortune or the result of medical negligence on the part of Ocala doctors and medical staff.

If your child has been diagnosed with Erb’s Palsy, brain damage, or other forms of birth injury due to irregularities during childbirth, you owe it to yourself and to your child to know for sure.

The Ocala attorneys at Morgan & Morgan know how to spot medical mistakes and know the telltale signs of medical negligence during the birth process. We fight to hold medical facilities accountable when their lack of care causes permanent injury to a newborn – and to get the compensation you need to care for your child if those injuries were caused by avoidable mistakes.

  • What Causes Birth Injuries?

    Complications during delivery can injure newborns in many ways. However, one of the most common types of birth injuries in Ocala involves nerves in the neck and shoulder. When a physician applies too much force to a baby’s arm or neck during delivery, nerves in the spine or brachial plexus can be damaged, resulting in conditions such as Erb’s palsy or Klumpke’s palsy.

    According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, these conditions appear in 1 or 2 babies for every 1,000 live births and cause loss of feeling and dexterity, and potentially paralysis in the arms. Treatment for Erb’s palsy can potentially take years before any sort of recovery is made, leading to large medical bills in physical therapy and surgery. Even then, there can be permanent damage.

    Similarly, nerve damage elsewhere in the body — such as the face — can cause numbness, weakness, and paralysis. While the condition is often reversible, it can be permanent if the nerve damage is severe enough.

    In other cases, complications during birth can deprive a newborn of oxygen, resulting in brain damage. This can lead to permanent cognitive delays as well as motor conditions such as cerebral palsy. These types of conditions are often permanent and can require a lifetime of medical care to manage and mitigate.

  • Why is it Important to Hold Doctors Accountable for Birth Injuries?

    A permanent birth injury can change the life of a family drastically, in the blink of an eye. Parents can often end up spending more and more money attempting to give their child the best life they can despite the injuries. What was supposed to be a happy family is now one strained both emotionally and financially, all for something they weren’t even at fault for.

    This physical and financial burden also extends emotionally. The injured infant and beleaguered parents may now suffer a loss of enjoyment of life, as well as companionship. The emotional suffering a birth injury can cause can be quietly devastating, and all from a doctor’s careless mistake. But a birth injury attorney may be able to present all of the physical, financial, and emotional damage - done to your family to the judge or jury and prove that you are entitled to significant compensation as a result.

    If you believe your newborn was injured because of medical negligence during or prior to delivery, then legal action may be a way to help your child while also preventing injuries to other children. Consulting an experienced birth injury lawyer in Ocala may be your best hope of securing the compensation you need to care for your child.
