Delays in Development and Birth Injuries

It is normal for a parent to look at their infant and wonder if they are developing at the proper rate. Are they walking or talking when they should be? If the answers to these and other questions appears to be "no", it can be a sign of more serious problems. When a baby does not reach development milestones, such as sitting up, crawling, grabbing objects or starting to make sounds or talk, it may be an indicator that the brain of a child is not responding and developing as it should.

Many times, delays in development are attributable to labor and delivery problems which cause injuries at birth. These injuries can lead to many types of cerebral palsy, mental retardation and other severe conditions. The use of Pitocin to induce labor, improper use of forceps, premature delivery, hypoxia or any instance where a newborn has been deprived of oxygen to the brain during birth can cause injury and become evident in developmental delays.

Some of these underlying conditions are permanent and treatment is geared towards helping the child to develop as much as possible and gain control over their body and environment. Using a dedicated California birth injury lawyer may greatly assist the immediate and long-term care of you child and the ability of your family to cope if a birth injury was caused by the negligence of a medical practitioner.
