Brain Damage During Birth

Call (440) 220-4439 to Speak to Our Birth Injury Lawyer in Cleveland

The brain is the most complex organ in the body, and there is still much that the medical community simply doesn’t know regarding brain injuries and the impact they will have on an individual patient. This holds true with infants and children, who may experience varying complications and disabilities as the result of brain damage sustained during birth. Minor brain damage can heal on its own or may have little to no impact on a child’s life. Significant damage may leave a child in need of lifelong care.

Identifying & Treating Infant Brain Damage

undefinedBrain damage may occur during childbirth as a result of a lack of oxygen or blood flow to the brain, or as a result of trauma to the head. The former is more common and may be caused by umbilical cord compression, prolonged labor, obstructed airflow, or other complications. Identifying the specific cause is important, as this will help us determine whether malpractice was involved.

Medical malpractice may be linked to infant brain damage in the following scenarios:

  • Failure to recognize and respond to fetal distress during labor or delivery
  • Mismanagement of shoulder dystocia or other complications
  • Failure to recommend or perform a C-section in a timely manner
  • Improper use of forceps or vacuum extractor in an instrument-assisted delivery
  • Negligent monitoring of a newborn after delivery

Brain damage during birth can cause serious, life-altering conditions such as cerebral palsy, developmental delays, and mental retardation. In extreme cases, a child’s life may be lost.
