Sacramento Birth Injury Lawyer
Common Causes of Birth Injuries
Although some birth injuries are unavoidable and can happen to anyone, many are caused due to the negligence of the medical providers whose responsibility it is to ensure the safety of their patients. Birth injuries often occur during labor and delivery, often when the labor goes on too long or the baby is larger than normal. Some common causes of birth injuries include:
- Improper use of forceps during delivery
- Failure to carefully monitor the baby’s vital signs during labor
- Failure to perform a caesarean section as soon as warranted
- Inadequate prenatal care
- Inappropriate prescription of drugs causing injury to the baby
If you think your baby’s injury at birth may have been caused due to medical malpractice, contact a Sacramento personal injury lawyer to discuss your case. You may be entitled to compensation for the injuries your child has suffered which can help you get through the difficult future you and your child may face.
