What Are Some Common Causes Of Birth Injuries?
When improper medical care is given during childbirth, a multitude of birth injuries and defects can occur. Among other debilitating injures, negligent medical procedures can cause broken bones, cerebral palsy, brachial plexus injuries (BPIs), and spinal cord injuries.
Birth injuries commonly result from the following negligent actions:
- Using forceps and vacuum extraction techniques
- Improper epidural administration
- Performing a cesarean too late
- Pulling too roughly on the infant's head/neck
- Improper prenatal care
Damages for pain and suffering, medical expenses, extraordinary care, and future loss of income can all be sought as compensation for your child's unnecessary suffering. In the event that the injuries sustained unfortunately cost your child his or her life, a wrongful death suit can be brought upon the negligent medical personnel.
