- A failure to monitor or act on fetal distress
- Not planning for a C-section
- The use of excessive force during delivery
- Misusing instruments during delivery
- Lack of blood or oxygen to the brain
- Exposure to bacteria
- Breathing distress
- Placenta previa

Seeking Prompt Treatment
Some birth injuries heal naturally over time. However, it’s critical you monitor your child’s health to ensure they receive the medical attention they need. Keep in mind surgeries to repair nerve damage are more effective when a baby is still an infant. Also, early physical therapy helps weakened muscles develop before unnecessary strain is placed on healthier limbs. Let our lawyers handle the litigation and work with you on your family’s journey to healing.
