How Do Birth Injuries Occur?
Birth injuries typically occur during the delivery or birth process when
the delivering physician or medical team does not act appropriately follow
the accepted medical standards of care. Lack of oxygen to the baby's
brain during delivery (hypoxia or asphyxia) may lead to significant birth
injuries. If there is an unnecessary delay in the delivery due to failing
to correctly interpret the monitor strips, due to failing to do a caesarean
section delivery rather than a vaginal delivery, or due to some other
reasons, a birth injury to the brain or other parts of the body may occur.
Birth injuries also occur when the umbilical cord is compressed during
delivery, the placenta separates before delivery or the uterus is ruptured.
If the baby is not delivered quickly under these emergencies, a significant
injury affecting the brain will most likely occur.
The sad reality is that many birth injuries ultimately result in death.
If your child has died due to a birth injury, we can help you file a
wrongful death claim against the hospital or doctor responsible.
