Common Birth Injuries
Some of the most common types of birth injuries include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Brain damage
- Erb’s palsy, brachial plexus injuries and shoulder dystocia
- Forceps or vacuum injuries
- Injury or wrongful death of the mother
Birth injuries can be caused by medical malpractice before, during or after the birthing process. Injuries can be caused by issues such as oxygen deficiency, compression of the umbilical cord, too much time in the birth canal, failure to perform a C-section or failure to consult a maternal-fetal medicine specialist for complex births.
Negligent parties in a birth injury case can include OB/GYNs, family practice physicians, midwives, nurses and emergency room doctors. The hospital or clinic may also be held liable for your losses.
