Birth injuries are some of the most heart-breaking cases that we take on. Bringing a child into the world is an amazing experience that cannot be compared to. Birth, however, can be physically traumatic for both mother and baby, particularly when hospital or medical staff members do not provide proper care or make a mistake during prenatal care or delivery. Complications may arise in any pregnancy or birth, regardless of what preventative measures are taken. It is a doctor’s responsibility to address these complications with care and as any reasonable professional would. When this doesn’t happen, a baby may experience any one of a number of injuries:
- Respiratory infection
- Paralysis of the face
- Brain damage
- Cerebral palsy
- Oxygen deficiency
- Injury to the skull and head
Birth Injuries in North Carolina
Birth injuries may occur due to any one of a number of factors. An incorrectly estimated due date can mean a baby is born too large or is born prematurely, in the case of a planned c-section or induced labor. Negligence or inattention from the doctor, a nurse or any employee of the hospital or medical care facility can lead to a dangerous condition going undetected and untreated. Errors during delivery and the failure of the doctor to quickly make the correct decision during a complicated delivery can lead to any one of a number of injuries, minor and severe.
A personal injury lawyer experienced with birth injury can help. An experienced lawyer may be able to help you get compensation when the level of care falls below the acceptable standard of care in your community.
