Common Causes Of Brain Injury To Babies
The most grave birth injuries are ones that cause damage to a baby’s brain. These can result in seizures, mental retardation or loss of bodily functions. Some brain injuries can require lifetime care. These injuries can be caused by:
- Delayed delivery resulting in hypoxia, a medical condition caused by lack of oxygen to the brain
- Failure to perform a timely C-section
- Complications of vaginal birth after C-section
- Drug interactions, overdose or administration of contraindicated drugs
- Trauma due to improper delivery methods
- Failure to respond properly when a fetus is caught in the birth canal
- Failure to monitor the baby’s heart rate for signs of fetal distress
- Trauma during delivery
Birth injury cases are complex because they usually involve emergency situations and judgment calls by doctors and nurses. In a successful case, we must prove that the child would have been born healthy were it not for the medical provider’s negligence. Our medical malpractice lawyers know how to investigate and build strong cases showing that the medical team made mistakes that have lasting consequences for your family.
