What Is a Birth Injury?
If your child has had any injury or trauma during labor and delivery, it may not be immediately clear whether your baby suffers from a birth injury.
- Did you have a difficult delivery or C-section?
- Did you suffer from placental abruption?
- Was your baby deprived of oxygen?
- Did your doctor use a vacuum or forceps during delivery?
- Did your son or daughter suffer head trauma?
- Does your child suffer from seizures?
- Were there problems with your baby’s heart rate on the fetal monitor?
- Did your baby need to be resuscitated?
- Did your child receive head cooling or hypothermia therapy after suffering a birth injury?
- How long was your baby in the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit)?
Trauma can be caused by use of induction/Pitocin, forceps, vacuum, or a C-section called too late. We know the questions to ask, have the contacts to get the answers and have the experience and trial knowledge to get you the justice you are looking for.
Negligence and incompetence can lead to birth trauma including:
- Brachial Plexus Injuries/Erb’s Palsy
