Birth injury and birth defects affect many more than we realize
Complications during labor as well as delivery can result many problems for a new infant. These birth problems, referred to as collectively birth injuries, can be quite severe.
A major reason for these birth injuries comes from oxygen deprivation, commonly occurring if the baby’s umbilical cord becomes compressed during the birth. Other main reasons include mechanical trauma during birth, in cases where the infant takes an unusual birth position during birth (such as being born “Frank breach” or buttocks first instead of coming out head first) or in cases where the infant is simply larger than can safely pass out of the mother through the birth canal in an easy way.
Many birth injuries can be caused due to doctor mistakes made by them or by their hospital staff during the actual delivery. These kinds of birth injuries may occur when excessive physical force has been applied during delivery or in cases where there has been a significant delay for performing interventions that are necessary such as C-section baby delivery. Another common birth injury happens when the hospital and doctor baby delivery team does not properly anticipate the baby’s size, which can cause a severely turbulent labor & delivery.
Birth injuries lawsuits most commonly arise out of situations involving operative deliveries (planned deliveries such as a scheduled C-section or a scheduled induced labor), whether the delivery is vaginal or whether it is an abdominal C-section delivery. This opposed to the less common birth injuries occurring in spontaneous child deliveries. It has been estimated and reported that 27 in 1,000 live baby births involve a birth injury.
Some of the most common Birth Injuries which lead to birth injury lawsuits include: Cerebral Palsy, Brain damage, Temporary Paralysis, Erb’s Palsy, Klumpke’s Palsy, Fractured Collar Bone as well as Brachial Plexus Palsy.
Birth injuries of the most severe nature are the ones affecting the baby’s brain. These birth injures are brought on from oxygen deprivation or in other cases by bleeding inside the baby’s skull or in the baby’s brain specifically. These birth injuries can greatly vary in their level of severity, and many unfortunately lead to a baby experiencing probblems of a long-term nature like seizure disorders throughout life or other major conditions such as cerebral palsy or in other cases mental retardation.
