How to Identify the Cause of a Birth Injury?

Birth injury or birth trauma is referred to as any damage, injury, or death an infant sustains before, during, and sometimes after the birth. Emergencies can also arise that threaten the life and health of the birth mother. Thousands of cases of birth injuries occur every year in the United States.

While some injuries are simply the result of the natural birthing process and will heal on their own within a few days or weeks, birth injuries that are caused by the negligence of a medical professional can have long-lasting effects which may prevent your child from living a full, happy life.

Birth injuries range in severity and include:

Common causes of infant injuries include pulling or twisting on the baby's head or arm during delivery, improper use of forceps or a vacuum to aid delivery, delaying an emergency C-section, and failing to recognize signs of distress in the mother or the unborn baby.

Birth injuries caused by medical malpractice can quickly become very complex legal cases. Your child's future may rest on the outcome of a birth injury lawsuit in terms of providing the financial resources to cover medical expenses, therapy, rehabilitation, medical equipment, and even in-home care made necessary by a doctor's mistake.

Birth trauma and serious birth injuries come in a variety of forms. When a medical mistake or hospital negligence is to blame for your son's or daughter's injuries, the scope of the trauma may depend on what your doctor, nurse, or other member of your birthing team did wrong.
