Could Your Baby’s Birth Injury Have Been Prevented?
Birth injuries can occur when a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare professional fails to properly monitor signs of fetal distress during the labor process. Injuries during labor can also occur when medical personnel recognize a problem, but do not react appropriately.
Birth injuries resulting from medical negligence can result in a lifetime of problems for a baby. Common birth injuries include:
- A fractured skull
- Brain or nerve damage resulting in paralysis
- Internal bleeding or bruising
- Cerebral Palsy or Erb’s Palsy
- Brachial Plexus injuries including shoulder Dystocia

Birth injuries impact not only your child, but may have a serious effect on your life as a parent. You may be faced with years of ongoing medical and therapeutic expenses. You have a fight ahead of you to ensure your child is able to meet his or her full potential, living a life of dignity.
