Forms of Birth Injuries & Causes
A birth injury is any sort of harm brought upon an infant due to a medical
professional’s mistake. In some incidents, a birth injury can actually
occur before the child is born. Regardless of when the harm actually occurs,
it often results in serious consequences and lifelong disabilities. Physical
manifestations of birth injuries can be paralysis, weak muscles, and a
lack of coordination; mental debilitations, such as severe learning disabilities,
can also be caused by a birth injury.
Some commonly occurring causes of birth injury cases are:
Failure to diagnose: Some birth injuries do not occur in a single moment but rather due to an
obstetrician’s failure to recognize a problem early on in the pregnancy.
In such cases, the child may have already been harmed extensively, usually
due to oxygen deprivation or malformations, by the time they are born.
Twisting or pulling: Doctors assisting a woman in labor can rush the procedure by excessively
pulling and twisting the newborn. Too much force or stress on a joint
can cause immediate and permanent damage, such as shoulder dystocia, in
which the infant’s shoulder muscles and nerves are stretched to
the point of paralysis.
Incorrect equipment use: Medical equipment used to assist in child birth must be handled carefully.
Selecting the wrong equipment or using it recklessly can cause serious
harm to the mother and child, rather than making birth easier.
Ineptness: Unqualified and inexperienced doctors should not be assigned to a birth
alone. The appropriate procedure would be to have them assist another
doctor that has the experience necessary to safely deliver a child.
