Welcoming a new baby is an exciting time. No one expects their new bundle of joy to become injured during delivery due to the negligent actions of a medical professional. Many find themselves filled with many birth injury questions and without someone to ask them to. If your child became injured during birth, it is important to talk to a knowledgeable complex litigation attorney like those found at The Michael Brady Lynch Firm.

Answers to Common Birth Injury Questions

Injured BabyIt is important to realize that 3 out of 100 babies born in America will sustain injuries during the delivery process. Many different reasons contribute to a birth injury. Some of the most common ones include oxygen deprivation, the use of excessive force during delivery, a delay in performing a necessary cesarean section, and the improper use of delivery assistance tools.

Different Between Birth Defect and a Birth Injury

A birth injury is typically caused by mistakes made during the delivery process that result in harm to the baby. Birth injuries are also usually avoidable. On the other hand, birth defects are often the result of genetics and arise before the baby is born. In some cases, proper prenatal care prevents a birth defect. Some of the most common birth injuries include fractures to the arm or collarbone, bruising on the face or head, skin irritations, and umbilical cord entrapment. Conditions such as cerebral palsy or Erb’s palsy might develop as a result of the birth injuries your baby sustains. These cause lasting pain, complications, and suffering.

Medical Malpractice Birth Injury Questions

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider, such as a doctor, nurse, technician, or any other medical professional provides care that is below the acceptable standard. Typically, a patient gets hurt. Most often an injury happens when a doctor fails to monitor your pregnancy. This leads to neglecting to check for potential birth risks. Usually, this leads to serious complications. Any negligent doctor who did not provide proper prenatal care or harmed a newborn can be held liable. Sometimes proving medical malpractice is difficult. To know for certain if a birth injury was from negligence, it is important to have a thorough investigation.  We have the resources necessary to assist throughout this process.
