Information About Types and Symptoms of Birth Injuries
Cerebral palsy, shoulder dystocia and facial paralysis are three of the most common birth injuries, but there are many others. Any time negligence or reckless medical care causes an injury during the birth process, a child has suffered a birth injury.
While the symptoms of a birth injury vary greatly depending on the type and severity of the injury, it’s important to be alert to the following signs:
- Delayed motor skills
- Paralysis or limited facial or limb movement
- Clenched fists
- Difficulty holding head up
- Poor coordination or muscle movement
Once a birth injury is suspected, it’s important to quickly speak with a knowledgeable attorney to understand the next steps. Taking legal action after a birth injury may be the only way to secure the compensation necessary to fully treat the symptoms of the injury. Physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, additional surgeries and long-term in-home care may all become available once you receive the compensation you deserve if your baby has been injured by a negligent doctor, nurse or other hospital staff member.
