Miami Birth Injury Lawyer
Complications that occur in pregnancy or during labor and delivery can result in severe injuries — many of which are lifelong and require the parents to make special provisions for their child. Not only is this type of care extremely expensive and time consuming, it puts emotional and financial stress on the entire family. Such injuries include cerebral palsy and brain damage. Another common injury occurring as a result of negligence is a Brachial Plexus, or Erb’s Palsy injury following shoulder dystocia.

Birth injuries include any physical harm or damage resulting to a baby during fetal development, prenatal care or during the delivery process. Birth injuries can occur due to natural or unforeseeable causes, or they can be a result of medical negligence. A number of mistakes made by medical professionals during birth can cause birth injuries, including:
- Failure to respond to signs of fetal distress
- Failure to perform a timely cesarean section delivery
- Use of excessive force during delivery
- Miscalculating a baby’s size or the size of the mother’s pelvis
- Improper use of forceps or vacuum extractor during delivery
- Failure to diagnose or treat newborn conditions
If such a problem does occur, the impact is serious and the effects on the baby and the family can be devastating for the rest of their lives.
