Understanding Birth Injuries in Arizona

Birth injuries can deeply affect not only your child but your whole family. In Arizona, the frequency and gravity of these injuries are alarming, with significant numbers of infants affected annually. These injuries vary in severity and can disrupt many aspects of a child’s health, necessitating extensive care and substantial financial resources. At Snyder & Wenner, PC, we’re dedicated to helping you address these challenges through comprehensive legal support.

Did You Know?

Incidence Rate

Birth injuries occur at a rate of approximately 1.9 per 1,000 live births nationally. If similar rates apply to Arizona, with around 80,000 births annually, approximately 150 to 160 newborns could be affected by birth injuries each year in Arizona.

In Arizona, like elsewhere, the most commonly reported birth injuries include brachial plexus injuries (such as Erb’s Palsy), fractures (particularly clavicle fractures), and cerebral palsy, which is often associated with oxygen deprivation during labor and delivery.

In the broader context of medical malpractice claims, which include birth injuries, Arizona sees numerous cases each year. Data suggests that the majority of medical malpractice lawsuits, including those for birth injuries, tend to be settled out of court rather than going to trial, which is consistent with national trends.

Hospitals in Arizona, particularly those with high labor and delivery volumes, implement various protocols to reduce the incidence of birth injuries. These measures are crucial as birth injuries account for a significant portion of hospital-based interventions and extended neonatal care.

The cost associated with managing birth injuries can be substantial. For severe cases like cerebral palsy, lifetime care costs can exceed $1 million, depending on the level of disability. This figure underscores the economic impact of birth injuries on families and healthcare systems in Arizona.

Types of Birth Injuries and Their Common Causes

Birth injuries can arise from medical errors, complex deliveries, or unexpected complications. Key injuries include:


Often resulting from oxygen deprivation or birth trauma, leading to developmental delays and motor issues.

Brachial Plexus

Occurring when delivery complications damage shoulder nerves, possibly causing arm paralysis or weakness.


These may happen during difficult births, especially with improper force, affecting bones like the collarbone.

Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)

A severe outcome of birth-related oxygen deprivation, potentially causing lasting neurological damage.
