The Different Types of Birth Injuries

Birth injuries, unfortunately, come in various types, each presenting unique challenges. Our Bucks County birth injury attorneys are well-versed in handling cases involving:

Erb’s Palsy

Erb’s Palsy results from damage to nerves in the neck and shoulder during childbirth, leading to weakness or paralysis in the arm.

Cerebral Palsy

This form of palsy is often caused by brain damage before, during, or shortly after birth and results in poor muscle coordination and body movement.

Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)

HIE is a brain injury resulting from oxygen deprivation during childbirth, potentially leading to long-term neurological complications.

Brachial Plexus Injuries

These injuries occur when the nerves in the upper arm are damaged, often during a challenging delivery.

Facial Paralysis

Facial paralysis can result from pressure on the baby’s face during delivery, causing temporary or permanent damage to the facial nerves.

Bone Fractures

Fractures can occur during the birthing process, especially if excessive force is applied during difficult deliveries.

Where and When Do Birth Injuries Happen?

Birth injuries can happen at different stages of pregnancy and delivery, arising from medical negligence, improper prenatal care, labor mistakes, or the misuse of medical tools. Identifying the specific circumstances and timing of the injury is essential to determine liability and build a compelling case.

What to Do When Birth Injuries Are Caused by Medical Negligence

The Bucks County birth injury attorneys at Raynes & Lawn possess the knowledge and experience needed to thoroughly investigate these complex cases. Our goal is to hold negligent parties accountable and secure compensation for the mother and/or child’s long-term care.

Types of Damages Recoverable From a Birth Injury Case

  • Medical Expenses: Covering the costs of initial treatment, ongoing therapies, and specialized equipment.
  • Ongoing Care Costs: Providing for long-term care and support, including physical and occupational therapy.
  • Loss of Earning Capacity: Seeking compensation for the potential impact on the child’s future earning potential.
