Why Do Birth Injuries Occur?

Doctors and others in the medical profession should be held to a certain standard of care. When they fail to meet that standard, patients can suffer serious injuries. A birth injury can occur for a number of reasons, including the following:

  1. Failure to monitor fetal distress promptly, leading to oxygen deprivation.
  2. Improper use of delivery tools causing skull fractures or nerve damage.
  3. Delayed or inappropriate C-section when necessary for the baby's safety.
  4. Medication errors resulting in adverse effects on the baby.
  5. Failure to diagnose and treat maternal infections, causing complications for the baby.
  6. Inadequate prenatal care management, increasing the risk of birth injuries.
  7.  Lack of informed consent regarding childbirth procedures or interventions. Seek legal advice to assess your situation.

Common Birth Injuries

Birth injuries can vary in severity and can occur due to various factors during labor and delivery. Some examples of birth injuries include:

  1. Cerebral Palsy: A group of disorders affecting muscle movement and coordination caused by damage to the brain during childbirth.
  2. Brachial Plexus Injuries: Damage to the network of nerves responsible for arm and shoulder movement, commonly occurring during difficult deliveries.
  3. Erb's Palsy: A specific type of brachial plexus injury resulting in weakness or paralysis of the arm due to damage to the upper nerves.
  4. Facial Nerve Injuries: Damage to the facial nerve during delivery, leading to facial paralysis or weakness.
  5. Fractures: Broken bones, such as collarbone or clavicle fractures, can occur during delivery, especially in difficult or complicated births.
  6. Perinatal Asphyxia: Insufficient oxygen supply to the baby's brain during birth, which can result in brain damage or developmental delays.
  7. Caput Succedaneum: Swelling or bruising of the scalp caused by pressure during delivery.
  8. Subgaleal Hemorrhage: Bleeding between the scalp and skull that can occur when blood vessels rupture during delivery.
  9. Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE): A type of brain injury caused by oxygen deprivation, which can lead to long-term neurologic disabilities.
  10. Spinal Cord Injuries: Damage to the spinal cord during childbirth can result in paralysis or limited function below the injured area.
