Birth injuries how the legal community define the damage or injury done to an infant before, during, or just after the birthing process. There are various types of birth injuries as well as various levels of severity. Some birth injuries are temporary, while others last a lifetime. Some birth injuries are immediately noticeable, while others may not be realized until the child starts attending school.

Brain-related birth injuries can manifest themselves in various ways. These injuries are most often caused by the deprivation of oxygen during the delivery process. The term “Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy” is a general term that describes the depravation of the infant’s oxygen during the birthing process and the consequences that result from that deficiency.

Brain-related birth injuries include anoxia, hypoxia, birth asphyxia, perinatal asphyxia, brain ischemia, brain hemorrhage, and cerebral palsy, with cerebral palsy topping the list of most common birth-related brain injuries. Often, cerebral palsy is though to be a muscle-related ailment, because many who suffer from it have partial to complete loss of muscle control. However, it is actually a brain-related injury because it affects the way the brain communicates with the body’s muscles.

Other birth injuries that arise during delivery are often caused by the tools used to aid the delivery such as forceps, a vacuum extractor, or other surgical tools. These injuries can cause temporary or permanent disfigurement as well as other physical problems. Additional difficulties may be caused because of a reaction to medication administered during delivery or medical staff mishandling the infant. Some of these birth injuries may include lacerations, broken or fractured bones, or even skull fractures. Furthermore, it is not uncommon for a difficult delivery to lead to the infant developing a condition related to hypertension or high blood pressure. This can lead to a rapid heartbeat, cyanosis (which is a bluish tinge to the skin that results from poor circulation or inadequate oxygenation of the blood), or even a heart murmur.

If your child sustained a birth injury (or your child died) due to a medical malpractice injury, you can’t go up against the medical clinic or doctor alone, but an experienced attorney can.
