One of the most important issues surrounding birth injury litigation is finding the cause.
- Overly aggressive delivery: In some cases, the doctor uses forceps or vacuum extraction methods incorrectly or unnecessarily, or simply pulls the child too hard during delivery, causing shoulder dystocia, brain damage or other physical injuries.
- Improper fetal monitoring during delivery: In other cases, the doctor fails to monitor the mother and child during labor, which leads to injuries that include brain damage, hypoxia and cerebral palsy due to lack of blood flow or oxygen to the child. Fetal distress during labor and delivery, as well as infections and umbilical cord compression are other common birth injuries that result from doctor negligence.
- Post-birth errors: Doctors often make mistakes after children are born. Failure to properly manage high bilirubin can lead to kernicterus, for example.
These are just a few possible causes of birth injuries. With more than 25 years as a law firm, we have handled many Texas birth injury cases.
