Legal Counsel for Birth Injuries in Lake and Will Counties
There are many different types of birth injuries, some significantly more serious than others. All of them, however, can directly impact a child’s quality of life and have long-lasting effects on his or her family. Some of the most common birth injuries caused by medical malpractice include:
- Damage to the brachial plexus, including Erb’s palsy and Klumpke’s palsy: Pulling too hard or incorrectly during delivery can injure the nerves responsible for hand and arm movements.
- Brain injuries, including cerebral palsy and seizures: Oxygen deprivation is the most common cause for brain-related birth injuries, and may result from improper monitoring prior to, during, and immediately after birth.
- Head injuries, including cephalhematoma and succedaneum: Improper use of birth-assisting tools can lead to sub-cranial bleeding and swelling of the baby’s soft tissue in the scalp.
- Fractures and broken bones can be the result of the excessive use of force during delivery. The most common fractures occur in the clavicle.
Your doctor is charged with the responsibility to anticipate and respond to birth complications in accordance with the normal standard of care. Failure to uphold that standard can be extremely dangerous, especially to an infant, and the medical professional at fault may be held liable for any injuries sustained.
