Definition of a Birth Injury
Before understanding legal rights associated with a birth injury claim, understanding what a birth injury is in the first instance is fundamental. A birth injury is defined as a physical trauma experienced by an infant. An infant can experience what is broadly classified as a birth injury before, during, or directly after the birth of a child.
A birth injury is not the same as a birth defect. A birth defect is the result of some unfortunate genetic abnormality and not a traumatic event. A birth injury is the result of some type of traumatic event when a child is in the womb, during the birth process itself, or shortly after birth. In some instances, the trauma giving rise to a birth injury is caused by medical negligence, also known as medical malpractice.
Severity of Birth Injuries
Birth injuries come in different levels of severity. There are traumas that are not particularly significant and result in more minor injuries. These are injuries that tend to heal and may not require much in the way of medical intervention.
At the other end of the spectrum, there are traumas, oftentimes caused by medical professionals, that result in profound and life-altering injuries. These birth injuries result in permanent disabilities that will persist for a lifetime.
Common Types of Birth Injuries
A myriad of different types of accidents and negligent conduct can result in birth injuries. Common of birth injuries include:
- Bruising and lacerations cause by forceps
- Facial paralysis
- Brachial plexus injuries
- Factures and broken bones
- Cephalohematoma (hemorrhage of blood between the skull and the periosteum)
- Hypoxia (deprivation of oxygen)
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
