Birth injury refers to injury of a child before, during and after delivery. In the U.S., it is reported that 6 out of 1,000 births involve birth injuries.

As an example, Mr. Rosen represented an infant's family who was born with lifetime brain injuries as a result of the negligence of the obstetrician and hospital. He successfully recovered $4,300,000.00 in damages for the family.

 

Causes of Birth Injuries
The following are some of the conditions that cause a birth injury accident:
  • Prematurity- a baby born before they are 37 weeks old
  • Abnormal birthing - such as a buttocks first delivery
  • Large babies- a baby weighing over or about 8 pounds
  • Dystocia- difficult childbirth
  • Prolonged labor- This is called failure to progress and occurs when labor goes on for over 20 hours
If a birth injury has occurred as the result of medical treatment that is negligent or not according to accepted standards of medical care and results in serious injury due to the doctor, hospital or other medical professional deviating from the acceptable standards of care, you may be entitled to a considerable amount of compensation.

Common Birth Injuries
Some of the common birth defects include:
  • Bruising or forceps marks- bruising on the head or face because of the trauma of going through the birth canal
  • Brain injury - This occurs when the baby has insufficient oxygen. Prolonged deprivation of oxygen leads to brain damage and brain disorders like epilepsy and cerebral palsy
  • Facial paralysis- When a mother is in labor, the pressure on the baby's face could cause injuries on their facial nerve. Facial paralysis is also caused by the use of forceps for delivering the child.
