Birth Injury Lawyer in the Bronx
Aggressive Representation in Birth Injury Cases
Seven of every 1000 births result in a birth injury and many of these are caused by medical malpractice. Some women have a pelvis that is too small for a natural birth. When this occurs the baby’s head can get stuck in the birth canal and be shut off from oxygen. This results in nerve damage and sometimes cerebral palsy. The obstetrician should have anticipated this situation and performed a Caesarian section. Where there is a breech birth, the arm can be paralyzed as the result of stress on the shoulder and the nerves involved, termed a brachial plexus injury. The obstetrician should have observed the positioning of baby and performed a Caesarian section.
During pregnancy the baby receives every drug the mother does through the blood and other body systems. In spite of this fact, many medical and psychiatric professionals still prescribe anti-depressants to pregnant mothers. The effects of these drugs can permanently damage the child. If your baby has suffered a birth injury, you are urged to seek compensation by contacting a Bronx personal injury attorney.
