Warning Signs

Kernicterus is caused by high levels of bilirubin, a perfectly natural byproduct of the normal functioning of the body’s red blood cells. When bilirubin levels get too high, the baby will unfailingly show signs of jaundice, a yellowing of the skin. Jaundice needs to be closely followed and treated properly. If it is not, it can cause brain damage, called kernicterus.

The signs are obvious. The treatment is simple. Any competent doctor should be looking for these signs and properly handle them when they arise. If your doctor did not recognize the signs of jaundice and react properly, we can help you obtain compensation for your doctor’s negligence and the tragic damage that it caused.
