We understand that there are many birth injuries that are unavoidable and are nobody’s fault. The labor and delivery of a child is a tough process and does not always go smoothly.
Sometimes though, a birth injury is the result of mistakes made by medical professionals. This can include a doctor not recognizing, or ignoring, signs of fetal or maternal distress and failing to perform a necessary emergency C-section. If a doctor or nurse fails to use the correct methods when using birth-assisting tools, they can cause damage to the baby.
Birth injuries range from minor, with only temporary impairments, to severe and permanent disabilities for the child. Some common injuries include:
If your child has suffered a birth injury due to someone else’s negligence, you may wonder what your next steps are. Medical bills for extended treatment after birth may not be covered by your insurance. If the birth injury was severe and requires long-term medical care, you may wonder if you can afford it. Many of these injuries require a total lifestyle adjustment for the family, such as vehicle and home improvements. Sometimes, a parent has to leave their job to care for their child.
