Morgan & Morgan

  • Common Causes of Birth Injuries

    Medical providers are responsible for providing care to the mother and child before, during, and after birth. The following are common situations that can cause birth injuries in Queens:

    • Inadequate monitoring of the fetus’ condition before birth
    • Failure to plan for high-risk deliveries
    • Inadequate testing for potential defects before birth
    • Improper administration of drugs to the mother during labor, like anesthesia and epidurals
    • Improper use of forceps and vacuum instruments during delivery
    • Errors in electing to perform a cesarean section (C-section)

    Proving how an infant or mother’s birth injuries occurred and who is at fault can be challenging. However, our Queens birth injury attorneys at Morgan & Morgan can review your case to help you determine the negligent parties and how they caused your child’s injuries.

  • Types of Birth Injuries

    As unfortunate as it is, there are many ways a baby can suffer a birth injury. Many types of birth injuries are serious and often require long-term medical treatment. The impact on the parents is also immense as what should be the most joyous day of their lives turns into one of the most traumatic.

    Some common types of birth injuries include:

    Cerebral palsy can be negligently caused in several different ways. Many cases of cerebral palsy develop from a lack of oxygen during delivery. An untreated infection can also cause cerebral palsy in the child or mother.

    Brachial plexus injuries, also known as Erb’s palsy, are injuries to the nerves in a baby’s neck and upper shoulder. These injuries typically occur when a doctor mishandles a baby during delivery by placing too much pressure on the baby’s head, neck, and shoulders, causing damage to the brachial plexus nerves connected to the spinal cord.

    Other types of birth injuries are broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and asphyxia.

  • Who is Liable for a Birth Injury

    Determining liability after a child suffers a birth injury can be challenging. In many cases, the OB-GYN doctor responsible for the infant and mother’s care will be liable for negligently causing harm. However, the hospital or doctor’s office that employs a negligent OB-GYN provider could also be held accountable for the injuries that their employees cause.

    Other healthcare providers are involved in delivering a child than doctors who could be responsible for an infant’s injuries. Nurses and other specialists involved in a child’s birth have their responsibilities during delivery. They should be held liable for their carelessness if they fail to perform their duties adequately and injure an infant or mother. If you believe your infant’s birth injury is caused by negligence, contact Morgan & Morgan to learn more about your legal options.
