The Effects of a Brain Injury at Birth

A brain injury during birth can result in mental retardation, cerebral palsy and various developmental delays of your baby. Detecting a birth injury of this nature may take months or years, as the signs of a brain injury may not immediately present themselves. An injury to the brain of your newborn can be the result of medical malpractice during the delivery process. If detected quickly, techniques such as brain cooling can be performed to reduce the effects of an injury. Failure to correctly diagnose and treat a brain injury is form of negligence and the responsible person can be legally liable for their actions.

A lack of oxygen to the baby's brain can be caused by neglecting to perform a timely C-section, improper delivery methods, labor and delivery problems and failure to correctly monitor the baby's heart rate, among others. It can be devastating to have your newborn suffer a birth injury and those responsible for causing it need to be held accountable. In the event that medical malpractice has resulted in a brain injury to your child, a California birth injury attorney from Bostwick and Peterson LLP can seek justice for you and your family.
