What Are Examples Of Preventable Birth Injuries

A birth injury is generally defined as any injury an infant sustains during the labor and delivery process. A portion of these kinds of injuries is due to medical errors on the part of the attending physician or another medical professional. Some examples of preventable birth injuries that could be due to medical negligence or malpractice include:

  • Failure to monitor the mother's or baby's oxygen levels during labor, leading to conditions such as cerebral palsy
  • Misuse of forceps or other medical instruments
  • Delaying a cesarean section despite signs it is needed
  • Not detecting stress to the baby's neck and shoulders during labor, producing permanent injuries such as Erb's palsy

Birth injury cases are complex and often hinge on evidence of communication between medical professionals, records of vital signs and other data. Our attorneys will conduct a thorough examination of the birth-related medical evidence and the postpartum impact on your baby's health and well-being.
