Birth Injuries in Texas
Austin Medical Malpractice Attorney At Your Service
One of the greatest moments of a parent’s life is the birth of their
child. While most child deliveries are often executed properly, sometimes
complications can occur during both pregnancy and delivery.
Common birth injuries include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Perinatal Asphyxia
- Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN)
- Bone fractures
- Spinal cord injuries
- Wrongful death
If your child has suffered a birth injury due to the negligent actions
of medical staff, it’s imperative to speak to an experienced and
skilled Austin medical malpractice attorney. At Komie & Morrow LLP,
we over 60 years of collective experience and have successfully represented
thousands of clients and obtained the results they desire.
Common Causes of Birth Injuries
Many people often make the mistake of classifying birth defects and birth
injuries in the same category. However, that is not the case. Birth defects
occur relatively early in the pregnancy and typically unavoidable. On
the other hand, birth injuries are often preventable and caused by human error.
Common causes of birth injuries include:
Delayed birth – Often resulting in too much pressure on the baby’s head
during difficult labors
Oxygen deprivation – Due to the baby spending an extended amount of time in the birth
canal, resulting in a kinked or prolapsed umbilical cord, low birth weight
or underdeveloped lungs
Medical errors – Whether it’s monitoring issues, the wrong medication or dosage,
or improper manipulation of the baby’s body during delivery, even
a mild injury can affect the child and the family’s life forever
