Birth Injuries

A birth injury can be the result of a number of factors, many of which are preventable. Below are some examples of healthcare negligence that might cause a birth injury.

  • Incorrect use of forceps during delivery. This might result in lacerations to the child or more severe injuries, like head injuries.
  • Improper use of vacuum extraction devices during delivery. This might result in bleeding in or around the brain.
  • Failure to respond to signs of fetal distress. This ultimately could result in lack of oxygen to the fetus, which can result in a number of injuries.
  • Failure to monitor mother and child properly. Similarly, failure to monitor might lead to fetal distress.
  • Negligent cesarean delivery. This might include neglecting to take proper precautions when performing this surgery.

While some birth injuries, such as minor brachial plexus injuries, bruises or abrasions will heal completely with time, other injuries, such as neurological injuries, may result in long-term complications for the affected child.
