Causes of Birth Injuries
There is nothing more devastating than celebrating the arrival of a newborn and realizing that he or she has suffered devastating injuries as a result of a doctor's negligence during pregnancy or in the labor and delivery room.
Unfortunately, far too many parents face this reality every single year and find themselves dealing with the consequences not just in the short term but also for years to come and throughout the child’s life.
These injuries are frequently caused by one or more medical mistakes made during the labor and delivery process and could have been prevented. There are several different causes of birth injuries, including:
- Depriving the baby of oxygen
- Failing to correctly estimate the child's size and weight prior to delivery
- Using excessive force during the delivery process
- Delaying a C-section
- Improper use of forceps
- Failing to perform appropriate tests
It is important to speak with one of our experienced New Jersey birth injury attorneys as soon as possible after discovering your child has sustained critical injuries at the hands of a doctor. You may not realize the full extent of the trauma or injuries until weeks after your child is born.
Finding the right lawyer can have a significant impact on your ability to recover compensation. Contact Lynch Law Firm today for a free consultation.
