About Birth Injuries
Unfortunately, hundreds of babies a day are born in the U.S. with some type of birth injury. They are extremely traumatic injuries, especially due to the emotional attachments to the baby that are a natural part of the pregnancy and parenthood process. There are any number of things that can complicate the birthing process and cause potential injury to the newborn, the most devastating of which is depravation of oxygen or blood to the brain for an extended time period. Total lack of oxygen to the brain (anoxia) or partial lack of oxygen to the brain (hypoxia) or related bleeding can cause the newborn to suffer from various conditions such as mental retardation, cerebral palsy, erb’s palsy, brachial plexus palsy, among others.
Birth injuries can occur before, during, or immediately after the birth of the baby. They can be caused by natural unavoidable circumstances, or by mistakes made by doctors, nurses, hospitals or other medical personnel. Failure on the part of the medical staff or hospital to adequately monitor and react in a timely manner to adverse conditions, such as undertaking a timely C-section when conditions warrant, is an example of a circumstance that can result in an extremely serious birth injury.
