Birth Injuries

A birth injury varies from minor, easily resolved issues to severe issues that can result in an infant’s death. A birth trauma is defined as any damage or injury to an infant’s body before, during, or slightly after birth. A majority of doctors and healthcare professionals work with the utmost professionalism, but at times medical mistakes or negligence can occur leading to serious life-threatening birth injuries affecting the victims and the families for the entirety of a child’s life.

It is important that when these types of mistakes occur the negligent party is held fully responsible for their actions. In the United States and estimated seven unexpected birth injuries occur per one thousand births.

Many times, birth injuries are caused by the healthcare professional’s medical negligence such as, a head trauma or oxygen deprivation occurring during a delicate birthing process. Each year 10,000 babies are affected with Cerebral Palsy due to oxygen deprivation caused by pure negligence.
