Dangerous Birth Injuries
The birth of a child is supposed be a joyous and wonderful event. Unfortunately, too often these happy moments are clouded when a medical practitioner is careless or negligent in delivering a baby. As a result of this carelessness, many birth injuries may occur, causing permanent damage to an innocent child.
When a medical practitioner makes a critical error before, during, or after the delivery of a child that leads to that child’s birth injury, that practitioner should be held legally accountable for such negligence. Thus, if your baby was born with a birth injury at the hands of an irresponsible medical practitioner, speak with a Massachusetts medical malpractice lawyer of Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, about pursuing such legal action by calling (617) 426-4488.
Several Common Birth Injuries
A medical practitioner handling the birth of a child has a responsibility take all necessary precautions and action to ensure they are not recklessly endangering a child or potentially going to cause him or her complications. Unfortunately, some of the following birth injuries are all-too-common when negligent practitioners are involved:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Traumatic Delivery
- Shaken Baby Syndrome
- Erb’s Palsy
- Brain Damage
- Spinal Cord Damage
Each one of these birth injuries can cause devastating consequences for both a newborn baby and its parents. Thus, anyone responsible for causing such a situation should be accountable for any of the repercussions.
