Common birth injuries include:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Anoxia
  • Hypoxia
  • Perinatal Asphyxia
  • Cephalohematoma
  • Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN)
  • Bone fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Wrongful death

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


Our Austin medical malpractice attorney possesses the comprehensive knowledge of the law to help you navigate through the complexities of these type of cases.
