Some birth injuries can be severe and cause long term consequences as a result of medical professionals’ failure to anticipate, recognize, react, and respond properly, and due to failure to notice warning signs, or otherwise deviating from accepted standards of medical care. Examples of improper or negligent responses to complications during pregnancy or birth include, but are not limited to, improper treatment or undetected infections during pregnancy, low amniotic fluid, a twisted umbilical cord, a baby that was too large for gestational age, breech birth, your baby was in fetal distress, but the medical staff did not perform a cesarean section, C-Section injuries, and Forcep & Vacuum Extraction injuries. These improper and/or negligent responses can lead to Cerebral Palsy, Erb’s Palsy, permanent brain damage, among other permanent injuries and in some cases, even death.

Birth injuries can have physical and emotional consequences and also place a financial strain on the child’s family. When a birth injury is caused by the negligence of a doctor or another healthcare provider, the family may be able to recover compensation for these costs through a birth injury lawsuit.
