Common Types of Birth Injury

Common Types of Birth Injury

Tuesday, November 5th, 2013

Pregnancy and birth comes with its own risks, but your doctor and the medical staff responsible for providing your care during this time have a duty to do no harm to you or your baby, and special care must be taken during labor and delivery, when birth injury often occurs. There are many different types of birth injury, but some of the common types are:

  • Erb’s palsy
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Oxygen deprivation
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Improper maternal and fetal monitoring
  • Labor and delivery malpractice

It’s possible for a baby to be injured during labor and delivery even if the medical staff is providing professional, competent care. But in some cases, birth injury is caused by careless actions on the part of the doctor or other staff. In such cases, you deserve to pursue compensation for your baby’s injury and suffering. Our experienced birth injury attorney Charles N. Rock will fight to pursue this compensation on your behalf, and to hold the negligent healthcare worker accountable.
