What Are Birth Injuries?

Infants are particularly susceptible to injury, and especially so during the birthing process. There are many different kinds of birth injuries and while some are temporary, many serious birth injuries can be permanent. In more extreme cases, a birth injury can result in the loss of the infant’s life. With so much at stake, it is vital that healthcare providers be held accountable for their actions.

Examples of birth injuries include:

  • Brain injuries, including birth hypoxia and cerebral palsy
  • Breech birth-related injuries
  • Caesarian-related injuries, including failure to perform a timely caesarian
  • Delivery injuries
  • Facial paralysis
  • Fractures
  • Medication injuries, including dosage-related injuries

The manifestation of symptoms can vary from infant to infant. While some infants will show clear symptoms immediately, others won’t have symptoms until months or years later. Because of this, many people are unaware that their child’s injuries are related to medical malpractice at birth and fail to seek compensation from the parties responsible. This is where an Illinois medical malpractice attorney familiar with birth injury cases can help.

Hold Healthcare Providers Responsible

Unfortunately, birth injuries often happen as a result of the negligence of healthcare providers. From failure to detect and treat infection to misdiagnosing a prolapsed umbilical cord or carrying out an emergency C-section, there are many circumstances in which carelessness can lead to birth injuries. At Panio Law Offices, we work hard to advocate for our clients so they can focus on their family and healing. With a proven track record of success behind us, we are proud to provide our clients with the personal attention you only get with a small firm while delivering big firm results.
