The birth of a child is supposed to be a joyous and momentous event in your family’s lives. But for some families, it’s a tragic day because the healthcare providers who were supposed to monitor and deliver their babies safely failed to do their jobs properly.
Although not all birth injuries are caused by provider negligence, many are. For example, some babies are forcefully delivered in ways that seriously injure them. Those injuries can lead to lifelong disability. Other babies may be harmed because they aren’t delivered correctly or according to what modern medicine dictates, which may include a C-section delivery.
Two of the most common lifelong birth injury-related disabilities include cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy. Both of these conditions can significantly impact the lives of the children who develop them, and the costs associated with treating and managing them can be enormous.
There are many things that can go wrong before, during, and immediately after childbirth, and doctors, midwives, and other healthcare providers must be aware of those risks and ready to take immediate action. When they fail to do so, both mothers and their babies can suffer serious harm.
