Maryland Birth Injury Attorneys

The arrival of a healthy newborn baby is the hope of every new parent.

Most babies are born without any complications. But sometimes, bad things do happen during the birthing process. Sadly, these problems can lead to birth injuries.

Some birth injuries are caused by the negligence, or improper actions, of the doctors and nurses responsible for making sure that the newborn child is safe. At Jezic & Moyse, we have fought for families to win payment for birth injuries that occurred because of medical malpractice.

Types of Birth Injury

Birth injuries come in many forms. For every 1,000 births in the United States, there are around seven birth injuries. These injuries can include:

  • palsyCerebral Palsy – CP can be caused by a lack of oxygen during the birthing process. It leads to problems with functions like movement, balance and posture.
  • Shoulder Dystocia – This injury occurs when a baby’s shoulder is caught in the mother’s birth canal during birth. It can occasionally be detected before birth.
  • Brachial Plexus Injury – Brachial plexus injury, including Erb’s palsy, usually means damage to the nerves around the baby’s neck area.
  • Spastic Quadriplegia – This is a form of CP that affects all four limbs of a baby. Like many birth injuries, it can sometimes be detected by abnormal development in the child.
  • Hypoxia – Hypoxia means the lack of oxygen. This can lead to brain tissue damage and sometimes occurs along with other birth injuries, like shoulder dystocia.

When Negligence Leads To Birth Injuries

When a medical staff, including doctors and nurses, fails to use proper delivery techniques, the results can be terrible for a child. Harmful things include improper use of forceps and failing to perform a C-section in time. Medical professionals are considered to be negligent if their actions led to a lack of oxygen or if they failed to recognize that the baby wasn’t getting enough oxygen.

While the injuries to a baby during birth can be harmful to the child’s overall health, there are also financial problems that a family must face after the injury occurs. Sometimes, these costs can last throughout the entire lifetime of the injured child.

If you believe that negligence was the cause of your child’s birth injury, you might be able to win payment for those injuries.
