It is an unfortunate reality that the happiest moments in life, like the birth of a child, can sometimes be transformed into devastating tragedies with often permanent effects. When birth injuries occur, they may be caused by the medical negligence of doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals. If the substandard care of a healthcare provider led to severe birth injuries or the death of your child, we recommend you seek the legal advice of an experienced birth injury attorney.
Because babies are extremely vulnerable in the first stages of life, extra care should be taken to ensure their safety during birth. The slightest amount of trauma can severely impact the child’s life, and medical professionals are trained to recognize warning signs of distress such as leaking amniotic fluid, change in blood pressure, weight loss/gain, and premature labor/contractions. However, some physicians and nurses fail to act quickly enough when presented with warning signals.
Parents place the lives of their newborn children in the hands of medical professionals with the expectation that any complications can be handled properly. Unfortunately, birth injuries still occur and create life-long struggles for the child and parents. Some of the most commonly reported birth injuries include:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Erb’s Palsy
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Head/Brain Injuries
- Internal Bleeding
- Developmental Delays
- Bone Fractures
- Shoulder Dystocia
- Brachial Plexus
- Clotting Issues (RH+, RH-)
When birth injuries occur, the results are all too often devastating. If you feel that your child’s injuries or death were the direct result of medical negligence, consult the experienced birth injury lawyers at The Waggoner Legal Group.
