Types of Birth Injuries

Posted Friday, August 7, 2020 by Chris Thayer

Unfortunately, medical negligence either before, during, or immediately after the birthing process can cause serious injuries in the infant resulting in permanent damage. If you discovered that your baby was injured during birth, you may have the legal right to pursue a claim under the law.

**Common Types of Birth Injuries Resulting From Medical Malpractice

**Not every medical condition or diagnosis an infant receives is the result of medical malpractice. In some cases, children are born with medical conditions or illnesses that have no relationship to any type of action or inaction on the part of the medical attending staff. However, there are certain types of injuries that occur often due to the fact that a healthcare provider or medical practitioner made serious negligent errors in the birthing process resulting in a birth injury. Some of the types of common birth injuries resulting from medical malpractice include the following:

There are many other medical complications, illnesses, and injuries that may occur as a direct result of the medical negligence of a nurse, surgeon, doctor, or another medical professional. If you or your baby suffered any injuries or losses as a result of medical negligence, you may have the legal right to file a claim to pursue justice on behalf of your newborn.
