Childbirth should be a beautiful moment in the life of a family. A mother brings a new child into the world. But, while this moment is beautiful, it’s also an incredibly fragile moment even for the most experienced medical professionals. When the medical staff fails to perform their job satisfactorily, whether that be before, during, or immediately after birth, the consequences can be disastrous often leading to a birth injury. The fallout causes pain and trauma for the child and mother at the moment, but can also extend for years or even the entire lifetime of the child.
If you or someone you love has been the victim of birth injuries, you need to have the best team possible by your side to help you through these trying times. The Law Offices of David P. Kashani, APLC take great care to provide the best services to victims suffering through the tragedy and injustice of a birth-related injury.
The moment of birth, as well as the moments immediately before and after, can be an incredibly vulnerable time for both the mother and the child. In these crucial instances, a competent doctor and their staff navigate a minefield of potential problems to deliver a child safely into the world. However, an incompetent medical staff can cause injuries that can impact the entire life of the child. Potential birth injuries caused by negligence include:
- Brain damage
- Birth hypoxia
- Brachial plexus
- Cerebral palsy
- Erbs Palsy
- Klumpke palsy
- Failure to perform timely caesarean
- Breech birth complications
- Vacuum extraction injury
- Incorrect medication or dosage
- Shoulder dystocia
- Damages caused by lack of oxygen
Any single injury can cause a significant amount of pain and agony, as well as completely alter the course of a child’s life or even lead to the child’s death. These are incredibly drastic consequences for the negligence of the medical professionals in whose hands rest the life and wellbeing of your child.
Damages Caused by a Birth Injury
The cost of caring for and raising a child is high enough for a healthy baby. For babies who suffer a birth injury during the birth process, those costs skyrocket. Not only must the child receive immediate medical treatment following the injury, but often must continue to receive treatment. Depending on the severity of the injury, the child may require a lifetime of care. The trauma doesn’t just affect the child. The pain extends to the mother and the rest of the family, who must take responsibility for caring for and raising the child under the most trying circumstances.
