About Birth Injuries

Birth Injuries are classified as a type of medical malpractice. In order for someone to have a viable medical malpractice claim, a doctor or healthcare provider (physicians, nurses, hospitals, psychologists, x-ray technicians, or a variety of other medical professionals) must have committed a negligent act that deviated from the accepted standard of medical care and that negligent act must have resulted in significant injury.

For example, if a medically necessary C-section was delayed, that delay must have been caused by the inappropriate actions of the OBGYN and/or hospital staff that no other reasonably prudent healthcare provider would have done under the same or similar circumstances.

These breaches in the standard of care must be demonstrated to be the proximate cause of the birth injury. This means that if not for the negligent act(s), the child would not have suffered from these injuries.

Common birth defects, traumas, and injuries include the following:

  • Erb’s palsy
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Toxic exposure
  • Genetic syndrome
  • Cephalohematoma
  • Other infant brain injuries
