Dallas Birth Injury Attorney
Causes of Birth Injuries
Hospitals throughout America deliver thousands of babies every day. The professional medical doctors, nurses and medical staff are trusted with these procedures. We rely that they will consistently do standard medical procedures that will keep the mother and baby safe and healthy, however this is not always the case. Due to negligence, it has been found that doctors, nurses, obstetricians or other medical professionals at times fail to provide the standard of care that is expected of them. A birth injury can occur to your child either in the womb or during delivery and birth.
Some common causes of birth defects include:
- Lack of Oxygen
- Problem with a Caesarian section
- Incorrect use of forceps
- Inadequate Maternal care
- Lack of monitoring prescription drug use by the treating physician
- Exposure to dangerous chemicals or drugs
The above situations can lead to brain damage, spinal damage and heart defects. Medical provider negligence can also cause a number of serious injuries, such as Erb's palsy, cerebral palsy, brachial plexus, placental abruption, nuchal cord injury, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy, shoulder dystocia, microcephaly, trisomy 18, and others.
