What are Birth Injuries?

What can you do if your Child has suffered a Birth Injury?


What can you do if your Child has suffered a Birth Injury? Injuries to an infant during the birth process are categorized as birth trauma or birth injury. Unacceptable obstetric treatment during a birth or poor diagnosis of a baby’s medical condition often lead to catastrophic injuries. While these injuries can be as a consequence of several causes, many are due to preventable errors  and/or medical negligence on the part of obstetric doctors or midwives. We have represented many clients who have suffered due to medical malpractice. Our birth injury medical negligence experience covers a range of cases. These include:

Problems not detected during pregnancy.
Failure to detect serious abnormalities pre birth.
Negligently handled births.
Errors during ante-natal care.
Injury or death due to medical instruments, anesthetics or inadequate suturing.

What can you do if your Child has suffered a Birth Injury?
Frequent birth injuries include fractured bones, brain injury and nerve damage. If there are medical complications during labour and delivery this can lead to a wide variety of problems. Induced or operative delivery are more likely to cause birth injuries than a natural birth.
