Causes Of Long Beach Birth Injuries

Birth injuries and birth defects are complete different. A birth defect is a condition that occurs before or during birth because of an inherited medical condition, but a birth injury happens before, during, or immediately after birth, usually because of medical negligence.

Some of the most common causes of birth injuries include, but are not limited to:

  • Incorrect use of delivery instruments (forceps, vacuum extractors)
  • Failure to recognize and prepare for high-risk deliveries
  • Failure to properly treat excessive bilirubin
  • Failure to properly monitor and record the baby’s heart rate
  • Failure to order a timely caesarean section (C-section)
  • Infant oxygen deprivation
  • Delays in addressing complications during delivery
  • Failure to recognize and respond to fetal distress
  • Monitoring issues
  • Failure to diagnose and treat problems prior to delivery
  • Failure to follow protocols and procedures
  • Delays in or failure to request help
  • Failure to identify umbilical cord issues
  • Medication errors

The causes of birth injuries are not always immediately obvious. Many people will need the help of an attorney who can conduct a thorough investigation to determine the true cause of your child’s birth injury.

Types Of Long Beach Birth Injuries

Birth injuries can involve various parts of a child’s body, and the severity of the injuries can vary depending on numerous factors. Some injuries will heal relatively quickly with proper care, but many other injuries can require entire lifetimes of care.

Common examples of birth injuries include, but are not limited to:

  • Eclampsia
  • Fractures
  • Caput Succedaneum
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Preeclampsia
  • Plexus Injury
  • Perinatal Asphyxia
  • Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)
  • Infant Cephalohematoma
  • Erb’s Palsy
  • Uterine Rupture
  • Cephalohematoma
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Klumpke’s Palsy
  • Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Anoxia
  • Shoulder Dystocia
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN)
  • Hypoxia
  • Detached Placenta
  • Bell’s Palsy

Mothers can also be the victims of birth injuries, with vaginal tears being one of the most common kinds of injuries mother sustain. Vaginal tears are usually classified into four degrees: first-degree tears involve skin-deep tears possibly requiring stitches, second-degree tears involve tears to muscles of vagina and skin around the anus, third-degree tears involve damage to muscles controlling the anus, and fourth-degree tears involve damage to lining or muscles of the anus.

A mother could also sustain post-partum haemorrhage (PPH), ruptured uterus, post-natal depression (PND), prolapsed uterus, and post-natal post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Don’t accept that blame and the legal repercussions that come with it.
