Trial Lawyers For Severe And Medical Malpractice Cases

Medical malpractice during birth can lead to a brain injury

Many children in Louisiana who are otherwise born perfectly healthy suffer brain injuries during birth that affect them for the rest of their lives. These injuries are not natural occurrences or unavoidable instances; they are received due to the medical malpractice of doctors and nurses.

Brain injuries are serious, sometimes life threatening damages that often cause long term disabilities. An infant can receive a brain injury during the birthing process due to a number of different medical mistakes in the delivery room. These mistakes include examples such as: improper use of medical tools, poor prenatal care, negligent choices made by medical staff that result in complications, delayed C-section or even dropping the baby on the floor after he or she is born. Some medications can also lead to brain injuries, such as the commonly used drug Pitocin. 

Some brain injuries can be received after birth while the baby is in the care of hospital staff. This often happens during routine processes during the first few hours of a child’s life. It is important to pay attention to your infant and watch for signs of brain injuries or other signs of medical malpractice and negligence.

A brain injury is very serious bodily damage that can potentially affect a child their entire life and cause a permanent disability. The medical staff can be held liable in the event that their actions caused a serious injury. If you or someone that you know believes that their child suffered a brain injury due to medical malpractice, speaking with an experienced attorney might be very beneficial.
