Birth Injury Defense Lawyer Serving Greensboro

What causes Birth Injuries?

While most births in North Carolina and across the United States occur with no problems, there are birth injuries happening every day despite adequate medical care. These injuries can occur due to failure on the part of the doctor or medical staff to take proper precautions or provide the level of expected care. A birth injury can occur to your child either in the womb or during delivery and birth. If there is a lack of oxygen to the brain during delivery, or some other trauma during the birth itself, a birth injury could result. A doctor may incorrectly use forceps, injuring the child, or fail to make the proper determination as to when a caesarian section is needed, putting the child's health at risk. A doctor may even fail to provide adequate care throughout the pregnancy, falling short of a thorough review of the mother's health and what prescription drugs she may be taking that could affect a pregnancy and the unborn child. It is being discovered more and more that certain drugs are causing birth defects. Paxil, for example, is an antidepressant which has been linked to serious birth injuries, including heart defects. Other types of birth injuries that can occur are brachial plexus, microcephaly, cerebral palsy, mental retardation and others.

If your child has suffered a birth injury due to the negligence of your treating doctor or some other medical professional involved in the birth, contact a Greensboro birth injury attorney immediately.
