When you are ready to have your child one part of the preparation that most expecting parents do not think to do is have a birth injury lawyer on standby in the event something goes wrong during the delivery.  Why?  It sounds negative but this precaution can save your child’s life.

Medical Malpractice during the delivery

Medical malpractice, doctors mistakes and negligence in the medical field, particularly during the delivery process, are more common than one would think.  Such medical malpractice can be devastating to the child and the parents’ life. There are many causes to birth injury malpractice claims.

Causes of Birth Injuries

What are the causes of Birth Injuries?  The causes of birth injuries are numerous and typically the birth injuries occur as a result of medical malpractice during the delivery or birthing process.  The newborn child being injured during the birthing process or delivery is a most common but preventable one by the hospital, doctors and medical professional if they follow the standard of care presently existing.

A second frequent cause of birth injuries is the use of  drugs on the mother or child resulting in serious side effects.  Many times the doctors or the medical personnel display carelessness during the delivery process which results in birthing injuries.  The improper handling of the situation results from minor to serious and permanent disabilities like brain damages, paralysis, bone injuries, asphyxia, hypoxia, cerebral palsy, erbs palsy and many other birthing injuries and complications.

Common Birth Injuries

Some of the Most Common Birth Injuries are: Infant Shoulder Injury During Birth known as shoulder dystocia.  Other serious injuries include fractures,  Spinal cord injuries, Nerve damage or paralysis, Hypoxia (Oxygen deficiency), Erb’s Palsy, and Cerebral Palsy.
