What Causes Birth Injuries?

If negligence or substandard medical treatment occurred at any point during your pregnancy, labor, or delivery, this may cause a serious birth injury. Cerebral palsy, brachial plexus injury, cognitive impairment, brain damage, Erb’s palsy, and developmental delays may be linked to birth trauma. While some birth injuries are unavoidable and may occur even when a doctor or nurse provides standard care, some such injuries are linked to substandard medical care.

Our Minnesota birth injury lawyers investigate cases involving:

  • Delayed C-section
  • Failure to recognize signs of fetal distress
  • Delayed response to fetal distress
  • Improper use of vacuum or forceps in an instrument-assisted delivery
  • Failure to recommend a C-section in a high-risk delivery
  • Improper management of shoulder dystocia
  • Medication errors
  • Misdiagnosing fetal position in the uterus
  • Failure to diagnose or treat an infection
  • Failure to diagnose or treat severe jaundice
