Brain Injuries

While the birth of a child is often one of the most joyous and exciting times of our lives, injuries that happen at the time of birth can put a serious damper on this cheerful and celebrated occasion. Affecting about 3% of all childbirths in the United States, birth injuries are more prevalent and serious than most people realize.

Injuries to the brain are some of the most serious and life-threatening injuries that newborns face. These types of injuries can significantly slow mental cognition, impede physical growth and in some cases, result in death.

There are a number of birth complications that can lead to a brain injury. These may include:

  • Anoxia, or a lack of oxygen during the birthing process
  • Physical trauma to the head during or after delivery
  • Cranial hemorrhaging

If the underlying condition is not detected and treated promptly, each of the above situations can escalate and have serious long-term implications and result in 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 you and your infant have been the victim of medical negligence on the part of a doctor or nurse, it is not fair that you should have to foot the bill for the resulting medical costs.
