What are the Most Common Kinds of Birth Injury?
Due to the vulnerability of the child, there are many different kinds of birth injury. Some of the most common injuries are purely physical and can involve bone fractures, cuts and minor lacerations, bruising and more. Most of these injuries are short-term if treated correctly. There is also the risk of brain damage, which can lead to conditions like cerebral palsy. Whatever kind of birth injury your child has suffered, from minor physical injuries to serious, life-altering conditions, call Tylers Solicitors today.
What are the Common Causes of Birth Injuries to the Child?
In most instances, injuries during birth are caused by mistakes made during the process itself. This could be anything from waiting too long or acting too quickly during birth. It’s also common for mistakes to be made during birth treatments, such as c-sections.
It’s also possible that birth negligence occurs before birth begins. For example, if certain conditions were noticeable during pregnancy but were never mentioned or treated. If there were signs that it could be a difficult birth, which were then never acted on or prepared for, you could also construe this as an example of medical negligence during birth.
If your doctor, surgeon, midwife or nurse has treated you or your child negligently, you may be able to claim compensation. If your child has suffered any kind of birth injury, or the mother has sustained avoidable injuries, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Tylers today.
