Birth Injuries Happen in a Number of Ways—We Can Help No Matter How Your Child Was Injured
Pregnancy and childbirth are fraught times for both the mother and baby, and any healthcare provider involved in the treatment of an expectant mother must take the utmost care to minimize the chance of something going wrong.
If your baby suffered an injury during childbirth, your doctor or a member of their staff may be responsible. We want to hear from you if your child suffered any of the following injuries:
Erb's palsy is a type of nerve damage to the brachial plexus that can result in weakness, numbness, or loss of movement in the upper arm. It frequently occurs when the baby's shoulders remain stuck in the birth canal after the head has been delivered.
Klumpke's palsy is another form of nerve damage; this one affects the lower arm and hand. It happens because of damage to the same nerves that cause Erb's palsy.
Vacuum or Forceps Extraction Injuries
When doctors have trouble delivering babies naturally, they sometimes turn to instruments such as forceps and vacuum devices for assistance. Forceps grip the baby, allowing the doctor to pull him or her out, while vacuum devices use suction to draw the baby out.
Because a long, drawn-out labor and delivery can be dangerous to both the baby and the mother, instruments have their place in assisting with a difficult birth, and they can be effective when used properly. When used incorrectly or unnecessarily, they can cause a number of serious birth injuries.
Newborns are vulnerable to a variety of brain injuries, especially during difficult childbirths. They can occur in a couple of ways: one, the brain can become deprived of oxygen, leading to long-term damage; two, the brain can suffer trauma during childbirth, also resulting in long-term effects.
Hypoxia refers to a lack of blood and oxygen to the brain during childbirth. Your doctor has a duty to recognize this condition immediately and take every possible step to reverse it. If a baby remains in a hypoxic state for too long, permanent brain damage can result.
If your baby died from a birth injury, we may be able to hold the doctor, healthcare provider, or facility liable for wrongful death damages.
