Types of Birth Injuries
Preventable birth injuries may range from minor to very serious. They all
deserve attention because someone did not handle your baby properly during
childbirth. Injury could include broken bones,
cerebral palsy, or even death. No matter the situation, if there was negligence involved,
you may wish to consider pursuing a case against the at-fault party as
soon as possible.
Some of the ways that birth injury can occur include:
- Unnecessary or improper use of forceps or vacuum extractor during delivery
Improper delay in ordering a
- Failure to monitor or address fetal distress
- Improper use of Pitocin, a drug used to induce labor
- Failure to perform specialized testing and other testing during pregnancy
- Neglecting to handle or refer high-risk patients in the proper manner
Birth injuries are not just limited to the baby. If the mother was injured
during childbirth and negligence was involved, you could have a case as well.
Creating a Valid Birth Injury Claim
You will need to do a few things in order to have a valid birth injury
claim, including proving that negligence was involved and caused the injury.
Negligence can occur if the physician or healthcare worker did not follow
standards for care during birth or if they used improper procedures to
handle the birth itself.
