Common Causes of Birth Injury
There are a number of reasons why birth injuries occur. These include:
- Failure to order a medically necessary C-section
- Failure to identify signs of fetal distress
- Improper use of birth assisting tools
- Lack of experience
- Using too much force during the delivery process
- Incorrect administration of Pitocin
- Medication errors
- Medical malpractice
In any of these cases, the baby runs the risk of a serious injury that could result in lifelong physical or cognitive ability. This can be devastating not only to the child but to their family as well. In addition to the pain of knowing that their child’s condition could have been prevented, families may face expensive ongoing medical treatment and the need to restructure their lives to provide their child with around-the-clock care.
With so many financial burdens, it is important that families know that there is help available. While nothing can undo the damage that has been done to your family, a birth injury lawsuit may bring you the financial resources you need to pay your medical bills and ensure your child’s continued care.
