Types of Birth Injuries
An alarming number of infants are injured during the birthing process. Expectant parents look forward to the birth of a baby as a joyous event. If complications occur during delivery, this joy can quickly turn to devastation. The trauma for new parents is worsened if it is later determined that their child's injuries were caused by the negligence of the doctors and medical staff. Birth injuries can range from mild bruising to brain damage or disabilities requiring a lifetime of care. Some birth injuries are so severe, they result in the death of the infant. Oxygen deprivation during the birthing process can result in severe brain damage, mental retardation, seizures, learning disabilities, as well as emotional and behavioral disorders. There are many different possible causes for birth injury that could be the result of negligence:
- Breech delivery
- Delayed Cesarean Section
- Placenta Abruption
- Failure to react to fetal distress
- Complications of Cesarean Section
- Misdiagnosis of fetal distress
- Improper use of forceps
- Prolonged labor
- Bone fractures
- Internal bleeding
