Tallahassee Birth Injuries

Tallahassee has been a fast-growing city for more than a century, thanks in part to it being hub of political activity in Florida and home to a sizable university. But for those who choose to settle down, they should be comfortable knowing their lives and the lives of their children are safe when it comes time for birth.

Unfortunately, this guarantee of safety isn’t always there. The Centers for Disease Control estimate the costs of birth defects at over $2.6 billion annually in the United States, principally due to heart and spinal conditions. Mistakes caused by healthcare professionals can happen, and cost you a great deal of money.

Our Tallahassee attorneys have witnessed firsthand the devastation a birth injury can cause, and will stop at nothing attempting to get you the compensation you need to help your child.

What is a Birth Injury?

Birth injuries come in many forms and can be caused by a variety of reasons.

Some injuries have nothing to do with the quality of healthcare received, and can result from genetic, chemical, and even physical injuries. But some are caused most often or frequently by healthcare professionals during or before delivery.

The most common birth injuries pursued as claims in medical malpractice are Klumpke and Erb’s palsy, oxygen deprivation, and facial or other paralysis, but there are plenty more. This video discusses some of the more common factors and side effects of brachial plexus injuries, one of the most common injuries during childbirth.

How Do Birth Injuries Injuries Happen?

Although it is not always the case, healthcare providers are sometimes the cause of your child’s birth injury. Medical errors occur most often in circumstances where:

  • Misuse 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

This is by no means an exhaustive list, and your healthcare professional could have caused a birth injury in a variety of ways.
