If your newborn has suffered a birth injury due to the careless acts of a healthcare worker, call our firm today. You can contact us by calling us at 214-295-2900.

How Do Birth Injuries Happen?

Birth injuries are tragic. It is especially devastating when serious injuries could have been avoided. According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, 157,700 injuries to newborns and mothers could have been prevented. The most common types of birth injuries associated with medical malpractice include;

  • Cerebral palsy, characterized by weak muscles, muscle spasms, and lack of motor skill development, usually occurs when the baby does not receive enough oxygen to the brain during labor and delivery.
  • Spinal cord injuries can occur due to overly forceful use of forceps.
  • Caput Succedaneum, or severe swelling of the scalp, is caused by too much pressure during delivery.
  • Perinatal asphyxia occurs when the baby fails to receive enough oxygen. A baby can suffer a coma, seizures, and shock.
  • Hemorrhages are life-threatening injuries caused by bleeding. If too much pressure is used by forceps, a baby’s skull or eyes can hemorrhage.
  • Fractured collarbones are common in complicated deliveries.
  • Cephalohematoma, or bleeding under the cranial bones, can lead to meningitis, jaundice, anemia, or hypotension.
