Birth Injury Lawsuit
A birth injury is a physical injury that happens to an infant prior to or during childbirth. Birth injuries can take on many forms and differ in seriousness. Sometimes, birth injuries are preventable. There are situations when the birth injury is a result of improper care or negligence provided by a professional medical provider, like a doctor, midwife, or nurse.
Some birth injuries include:
• Cerebral palsy
• Erb’s Palsy (also called Brachial Plexus Palsy)
• Bleeding in the brain
• Injury to the brain cells from a lack of oxygen (Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy HIE)
• Brain swelling
• Facial nerve damage
• Skull fractures
