What Is a Birth Injury?
As the name suggests, a birth injury is an injury to a baby caused during labor and/or delivery. Birth injuries caused by doctors, nurses, or midwives can take what should be one of the most memorable times in your and your child’s life and turn things upside-down. Tucson healthcare providers who are negligent during the birthing process can cause life-long injuries and, in certain cases, the death of your baby.
What types of birth injuries are there?
Some of the more serious Tucson birth injuries include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Neonatal stroke
- Brachial plexus injury
- Facial paralysis
- Spinal cord injury
Doctors, nurses, and midwives in Tucson have to act as a reasonable, prudent provider to prevent these common birth injuries. Although there is no cure for any of these injuries and the attendant life-long consequences, prompt intervention is critical to a better developmental outcome. Unfortunately, there is no guarantee that early diagnosis and treatment will result in a better outcome, it is very important you get your baby the best care possible to reduce the effects of a medical negligence induced birth injury in Tucson.
