For a parent, having a child should be the be happiest moment in your life. Unfortunately, there are times when it can prove the most devastating.

Birth injuries refer to damage that a newborn suffers during the process of labor and delivery. Though many birth injuries are from natural causes, however some are caused by a medical professional’s mistake or negligence. There are multiple people who may be held responsible. This includes doctors, nurses, support staff, technicians, and/or the hospital. The CDC indicates that perhaps 27 of every 1,000 births have some sort of preventable complication or injury associated with them. It can be extremely overwhelming to try to process “what went wrong”. You need an expert birth injury lawyer to investigate and gather the answers you deserve.
The most common birth injuries can be caused by:
- Birth Canal Negligence: The baby being left in the birth canal for an extended period, resulting in oxygen deprivation.
- Caesarean Section Non-Performance: Not performing a Caesarean section at the right time.
- Umbilical Cord Issues: Inability to detect issues with the umbilical cord.
- Physical Trauma: Any physical trauma to the infant.
- Health Condition Negligence: Not properly monitoring changing health conditions.
