  • Common Types of Birth Injuries

    Some of the most common birth injuries to infants include:

    Cerebral Palsy: Cerebral palsy (CP) is a condition that affects motor skill development, muscle development, coordination, and balance. Technically, a group of disorders, CP, can result in an array of symptoms, depending on the type. CP is frequently caused by a lack of oxygen, leading to brain damage during birth.

    Brain Damage: In infants, brain damage is commonly the result of oxygen deprivation (anoxia, hypoxia, or asphyxia) during birth. When a baby’s oxygen supply is cut off, he or she can suffer significant traumatic brain injuries, including permanent and irreversible brain damage.

    Cephalohematoma: Cephalohematoma is a birth injury characterized by bleeding beneath the cranial bone. Often, this results in a visible raised bump on the child’s head. Although cephalohematoma can heal on its own, it may lead to serious complications, such as meningitis, jaundice, hypotension, or anemia.

    Brachial Plexus Injuries: Brachial plexus injuries affect the bundle of nerves located near the shoulder/neck (brachial plexus nerves). This can lead to issues with sensation and movement on the affected side, including partial or total paralysis. Brachial plexus injuries can also lead to Erb’s palsy, a condition in which the infant experiences pronounced weakness in the affected arm.

    Broken Bones: Sometimes, when doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals try to forcefully remove a baby from the birth canal, they can fracture the infant’s clavicle, femur, or other bones. Broken bones are among the most common types of birth injuries and can also occur with improper use of forceps and other assistive birthing devices.

    Caput Succedaneum: Caput succedaneum is characterized by swelling of the scalp, bruising, and discoloration. Often, this is caused by excessive pressure on the baby’s scalp, sometimes as a result of forceps or other assistive birthing devices. It can cause jaundice and other issues but is generally a benign condition.

    Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy: Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) is a type of acute or subacute brain injury caused by lack of oxygen or reduced cerebral blood flow before, during, or after birth.

    These and other maternal birth injuries can have serious or even deadly complications. Sadly, this also affects several families every year. If you or someone you love sustained a birth injury due to the carelessness or negligent conduct of a trusted medical professional, you may be eligible to receive compensation.
