    What are the Common Types of Birth Injuries in West Palm Beach, FL?

    If you are unsure if the injury suffered by your newborn is related to the medical malpractice or negligence of a doctor, visiting with a birth injury lawyer in West Palm Beach can help you determine if you have a strong case for a birth injury claim. If your baby suffered from any of the following injuries, you may have the right to receive compensation for your child’s injuries.

    Cerebral Palsy

    One of the most common types of birth injuries suffered by children is cerebral palsy. This injury leads to a lifetime of challenges including tremors, difficulty walking and speaking, and pain and suffering.

    Brain Damage

    If your child is deprived of oxygen during the time of delivery, it can lead to a serious brain injury that can even result in a permanent vegetative state. Additional complications can result from a brain injury including seizures, and cerebral palsy.

    Spinal Damage

    If forceps were used incorrectly during the delivery, it can cause a head injury, traumatic spinal cord injury, or nerve damage.

    Infections

    Infections can happen in any medical situation; however, if the infection is not discovered, monitored, and diagnosed in time, it can result in serious infant brain damage.

    Issues with Swallowing and Breathing

    If a child stays in the birth canal longer than they should, they can develop infections or serious issues with swallowing and breathing in a fluid that could travel to the lungs or infect the blood. They might also suffer from a lack of oxygen.

    Cephalohematoma

    This is a traumatic and serious condition that occurs under the baby’s skin that results in bleeding under the baby’s scalp.

    These are not all of the possible types of birth injuries that can occur. Regardless of the type of injury your baby suffered, call West Palm Beach birth injury lawyer to see how we can help.
