What if Your Child was Injured at Birth ?
What South Florida Parents Need to Know About Birth Injuries

The birth of a child should be a celebratory occasion. But when a birth injury occurs, the joyous event can be shattered. Birth injuries range from mild to severe, ranging from minor bruising to serious injuries such as traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and head trauma. Many injuries can result in amputation, paraplegia, nerve damage, facial paralysis, and Cerebral Palsy among others. When a doctor, nurse or hospital employee fails to provide reasonable care, a baby can suffer a lack of oxygen, infection, trauma or even death. If you believe that malpractice may have contributed to your child’s birth injury, a South Florida child injury lawyer at the South Florida Personal Injury Center can assist you in evaluating a specific incident for the possibility of malpractice.

During pregnancy, labor and birth, the doctor, nurse and other hospital employees have a responsibility to both mother and baby to make sure everything goes smoothly and that there are no medical conditions that go unmonitored or unchecked. When they fail to do this and a birth injury occurs, the mother may often be told that there has been a “complication,” which may be nothing more than a cover up for negligence.

In the event of birth injuries, several types of negligence may have occurred during pre and post delivery of the baby. The doctor may have failed to monitor and anticipate any birthing complications for the mother or child, failed to respond appropriately to bleeding, or delayed ordering a cesarean section (c section) when medically necessary. The incorrect use of forceps during delivery may have caused an injury at birth. In other cases, hospital staff may have not acted quickly enough if the baby became entangled in the umbilical cord. Birth injuries could also be the result of a doctor administering an incorrect dose of labor inducing drugs or anesthesiologist malpractice in administering an epidural. Injuries to a baby can also result from poor care delivered after the birth, including mistakes made during a circumcision or failure to properly attend to an infection. All of these examples and more are valid reasons to file a birth injury medical malpractice claim.
