Detroit Medical Malpractice and Brain Injuries

Detroit Medical Malpractice and Brain Injuries

The birth of a child should be a joyous occasion, but nearly 3 percent of all childbirths in the United States involve birth injuries. Sadly, such injuries are more serious and prevalent than many expectant parents realize. Detroit medical malpractice

Injuries to the brain are particularly serious and life-threatening to newborn babies. Brain injuries can significantly slow mental cognition, impede physical growth, and even result in death.

Many of the brain injuries that occur during birth are the unfortunate result of medical malpractice. Such would be the case if the medical professionals assisting the birth did not detect and respond promptly to any of the following conditions:

  • anoxia, or a lack of oxygen during the birthing process
  • physical trauma to the head during or after delivery
  • cranial hemorrhaging
  • oxygen deprivation
  • fetal distress
  • umbilical cord around the neck

Without timely intervention, these conditions escalate and result in serious long-term implications, including permanent brain damage or brain injury.

The devastating injuries that may occur due to medical malpractice can change the lives of both children and their parents forever. If your infant has been the victim of medical negligence on the part of a doctor or nurse, then you should not be held responsible for the significant medical and ongoing care costs associated with the birth injuries.
