What Is a Birth Injury?

Birth injuries are physical traumas that can occur during childbirth. Both the mother and the infant can be harmed. 

These forms of trauma can be severe and can include the following:

  • Brain damage
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Forceps contusions
  • Bone fractures
  • Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy
  • Wrongful death

Birth injuries can cause long-term effects on a child and their family. In many cases, these injuries could have been avoided with attentive and consistent care. 

Common causes of birth injuries include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Improper monitoring of vitals
  • Inadequate or untimely treatments
  • Mishandling of tools, such as vacuum extractors or forceps
  • Oxygen deprivation
  • Failure to timely recognize symptoms that may signal problems in delivery

When the cause of the injury results from a medical practitioner's negligence, the family may have the right to file a claim against the responsible party or their employer. Taking action allows the family to seek financial recovery for economic and non-economic damages. Because these matters can be extremely complex, reaching out to a San Diego birth injury lawyer can help ensure that the case is appropriately handled.

Building a Case Against Responsible Parties

Pursuing a birth injury case is an important but complicated endeavor. Developing a legal strategy requires accessing and analyzing complex medical documents and other evidence to determine the liable party. 

A thorough assessment of the case is needed to determine whether a medical practitioner's actions or inactions departed from those of a similarly trained and experienced professional. If a doctor, nurse, or other practitioner acted below acceptable standards in the field, they could be considered negligent and held accountable. Additionally, depending on the circumstances, a hospital or corporation may also be liable for damages. 

At Lowe Lazar Law, we have the knowledge and resources to craft compelling legal strategies for our clients. We investigate, call on experts, and research relevant laws to ensure that we pursue every avenue.
