Birth Injuries Overview
When are Birth Injuries the Fault of The Doctor?
Birth injuries may be caused by the negligence of physicians, obstetrical nurses, or other medical providers or hospital staff. Birth injuries often occur because medical professionals fail to properly recognize or respond to signs of fetal distress. Birth injuries may also occur due to a failure to timely perform a necessary C-section. Other critical medical errors can contribute to the injury of babies and mothers.
When mistakes are made, the results can be catastrophic. Birth injuries that may result from medical negligence include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Failure to recognize signs of fetal distress
- Shoulder dystocia
- Uterine rupture/c-section
Both babies and mothers may suffer serious injuries or death as a result of medical negligence.
