What is a Birth Injury?

What is a Birth Injury?

Giving birth is a stressful and fragile time for all parties involved. If something goes wrong before, during, or shortly after the delivery of a baby, the consequences of the accident could be permanent. Although doctors and nurses can make mistakes, it is the parents and families who have to live with the consequences. Each year in California, many families struggle to re-adjust to normalcy when their baby experiences lifelong issues due to negligent birth care.

Our powerful team of birth injury lawyers fight for our clients. We believe half justice is an injustice and we go to great lengths to ensure our clients are protected.

Potential Birth Injuries

What exactly classifies a birth injury? Infants can suffer from a wide array of injuries at birth, including:

  • Bleeding inside or on the brain
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Brain damage
  • Skull fracture
  • Facial paralysis
  • Brain swelling

Some of these injuries are less noticeable than others. If you’re concerned your newborn or child may be injured, it’s very important to speak to your doctor immediately. If you believe your child’s injury may have been caused by a medical mistake, call Lawyers for Justice, PC right away so our birth injury lawyers can help.

Birth Injury Symptoms

How do you know what to look for when trying to detect a birth injury? Below are some of the most common symptoms of birth injuries:

  • If the baby has a “floppy” appearance or there is any indication there is a lack of muscle tone
  • Limbs may appear limp
  • If a breathing tube needs to be inserted to revive the baby
  • If the infant develops seizures within 48 hours of delivery
  • If the infant has issues breathing on their own after delivery.
  • If the baby has bruises, scratches, other marks, or swelling anywhere on their body

Please note that this is not an exhaustive list of birth injury symptoms. Some infant injuries can be recognized immediately, while other children’s injuries could take months or years before becoming more prominent. All parents want the best for their children. If you suspect your child is displaying signs or symptoms of developmental delays, consult with your doctor immediately. And if you think your child’s delays could be linked to an injury they experienced at birth or because of medical malpractice, call the birth injury lawyers at Lawyers for Justice, PC today. We can help parents and children recover the compensation that is owed to them that may alleviate some of the child’s obstacles in the future.
