Complications of Spinal Damage at Birth

When a doctor delivering a baby is not careful and conscious of his or her movements, that doctor might end up causing spinal damage to an infant. After a baby sustains such damage, they might also develop a number of other health issues and complications as a result. Sadly, these additional complications resulting from spinal damage caused by the errors of a Massachusetts doctor can be extremely burdensome, something which our legal team at Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, understands.

Complications Arising from Spinal Damage

The complications arising from spinal damage at birth can be devastating and sometimes permanent, depending on the type of damage that occurs. Some of these consequences might involve the following:

  • Non-development of muscles around the spinal cord
  • Permanent back or neck damage / problems
  • Scoliosis
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Brain damage / under-development
  • Cognitive disability / damage
  • Difficulty socializing later in life

Unfortunately, a baby may have to deal with such complications as the result of a doctor’s negligence. When doctors and/or other medical professionals are negligent in the care they provide, they should be held liable for this medical malpractice.
