How Birth Injuries Occur
Careless or intentional acts by a hospital, nurse, doctor or healthcare provider can cause birth injuries. If these actions cause injury to the mother or baby, as long as they don’t rise to the level of a crime, they can be reason for a lawsuit.
Those responsible for injuries stated above can be required and legally obligated to pay damages. These damages are typically designed to place the injured back in the financial position he/she was in before they were injured. Medical expenses, pain and suffering, and disability are common damages that must be recuperated, whether past or future.

There are few situations as difficult and trying for parents as the moment when they realize their child has been injured during the birthing process or subsequent neonatal care at the hospital. As the realization sets in that your child will face challenges others won’t, you need answers to some basic questions:
For example, not performing a Cesarean section when indicated can result in your baby not getting adequate oxygen to the brain, causing brain damage. Often this causes permanent damage and lasting problems. Other common birth injuries involve the doctor pulling too hard on the baby during delivery, causing nerve damage and other problems.
Not all babies born with problems are suffering from birth injuries. For example, problems like heart defects, cleft palates, and other problems are significant problems but are not generally related to medical error during labor or delivery.
