How Do Birth Injuries Occur?
There are many ways birth injury can occur, but the most common are a result of severe injury to the head or damage to one of several vital nerve junctions. Newborns are extremely fragile and even the act of emerging from the birth canal can be too traumatic for some children.
Common Examples of Birth Injuries:
- Birth Asphyxia
- Erb’s Palsy
- Cerebral Palsy
- Forceps & Vacuum Delivery
- Kernicterus Caused by Jaundice
- Shoulder Dystocia
These birth injuries are avoidable with the due diligence of a health care provider, but an unfortunate amount of children suffer from birth injuries. If your child is the victim of a birth injury because of negligence it’s important that you know your rights.
