Establishing the Connection Between Negligence & Birth Injuries

To effectively handle a birth injury claim, it will be necessary to establish a link between the injury and a failure to provide proper care on the part of the attending OB/GYN or other medical professional. Examples may include excessive use of a vacuum extractor, improper use of delivery forceps, delays in nonproductive births, delayed C-sections, misdiagnosis of trauma or disease, and preventable complications arising from a vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC).

Conditions that may result from birth injuries include:

  • Paralysis
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Brachial plexus injury
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Developmental delays
  • Mental retardation
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Asphyxia
  • Facial cuts and/or bruises
  • Hypoxic-anoxic brain injuries

In some situations, birth injuries are avoidable with proper anticipation and recognition of certain risk factors, such as the baby’s position and size. Miscalculations made during the delivery process can lead to many serious complications and injuries, which may in turn cause specific disorders, lifelong problems, and even death.
