A birth injury, or birth trauma, is damage that happens to a baby during labor and delivery. Almost 6 out of every 1000 children born in the United States every year suffer from serious birth injuries., Although not all of these birth injuries are a result of medical malpractice, some of the most severe birth injuries are entirely avoidable and are attributable to physicians’ errors.

What is birth malpractice?

Birth injury medical malpractice occurs when a health care provider or facility’s medical error before, during, or shortly after childbirth causes harm to the mother or baby. Birth injury medical malpractice is one of the most common forms of medical negligence claims

What is medical negligence for birth injuries?

Birth injury compensation claims can be made if the mother or child suffered an injury before, during or after childbirth. The injury needs to be a result of medical negligence – that is, when your healthcare provider fails to meet the necessary standards to keep you and baby safe

How much compensation do you get for birth trauma?

The amount of birth injury compensation you’ll receive if your claim is successful is based upon how much suffering was endured (general damages) and any financial impact (special damages). As such, we can’t say how much compensation might be paid in your case until it has been properly assessed.

Birth Injuries as a Result of Medical Malpractice

Some birth injuries can be severe and cause long term consequences as a result of medical professionals’ failure to do the following:

  • anticipate, recognize, react, and respond properly
  • notice warning signs
  • or otherwise deviate 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;
  • undetected infections during pregnancy;
  • low amniotic fluid;
  • a twisted umbilical cord;
  • a baby that was too large for gestational age;
  • breech birth;
  • a baby was in fetal distress, but the medical staff did not perform a cesarean section;
  • C-Section injuries;
  • Forcep & Vacuum Extraction injuries.

Common Types of Birth Injuries

These improper and/or negligent responses can lead to:

  • Cerebral Palsy;
  • Erb’s Palsy;
  • Brachial Plexus;
  • Brain damage;
  • Shoulder dystocia;
  • Spinal chord injuries;
  • Fetal laceration 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. Enlisting the help of a birth injury attorney can help your child obtain compensation for their medical expenses, pain and suffering, and more.
