Brain Birth Injuries

brain birth injuries Brain Birth Injuries

The birth of a child should be a joyous and exciting time, but birth injuries occur all too often. Brain birth injuries are particularly serious and affecting about 3 percent of all childbirths in the United States.

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

Causes of Brain Birth Injuries

There are a number of birth complications that can lead to a brain injury, including:

  • anoxia (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, these birth complications can escalate and have serious long-term implications and result in a permanent brain damage. It is the responsibility of the attending medical personnel to anticipate and respond to such risks.

When the Doctor or Medical Staff is Negligent

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 victims of medical negligence, then you should not have to foot the bill for the resulting medical costs.
