Injuries Suffered During Birth

Even under optimum conditions, the risk of injury to mother and child during the birthing process is high. Approximately three to five infants in every 1000 suffer some form of harm during birth, including:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Erb's Palsy
  • Fetal acidosis
  • Hypoxic injuries
  • Abrupted placenta
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Paralysis
  • Coma

Infants can also suffer mental damage in addition to the physical injuries they sustain. This occurs frequently in cases where the child is deprived of oxygen for too long during birth, such as when the umbilical cord of the mother is wrapped around their neck, or when they are facing the wrong way. They may be left with adverse behavioral issues, or end up suffering from mental retardation or a persistent vegetative state. If you, or your child, have been injured during the birthing process, it is in your best interest to consult with a Clifton personal injury lawyer today. Should the injuries have been caused by medical negligence, you may be able to obtain compensation for you and your child.
