No expectant parent wants to consider the possibility of their newborn sustaining an injury during birth. Unfortunately, such injuries can occur. According to birth injury statistics for New York, seven in every 1000 newborns will sustain injuries during labor or birth.

Parents often face emotional and financial struggles when this happens. They also may have many questions. There are many instances in which an injury that occurred before or during childbirth could have been prevented. As such, parents want to know if another party’s actions or negligence contributed to these unfortunate circumstances.

    How Birth Injuries Occur

    The term birth injury is something of a misnomer. That’s because such injuries can actually occur before or after a birth, and not merely during it.

    There are numerous potential causes for birth injuries. This is true even if a mother had an otherwise healthy pregnancy. Identifying these situations and determining if liability is present is one of the most important reasons to consult with a New York birth injury attorney.

    What types of incidents may occur before a birth that cause a birth injury?

    • A medical professional fails to adequately plan for the child’s delivery.
    • Medical professionals fail to identify or act on signs that a baby is experiencing distress or medical complications.
    • A birth mother exposing a child to harmful chemicals in the workplace.
    • Prescription drugs having an adverse effect on the unborn child.
    • A medical professional applying excessive force during the delivery process; for example, using unnecessary tools like forceps.
    • A medical professional providing negligent care during labor and delivery.
    • Insufficient oxygen reaching the child’s brain during labor and delivery.
    • Attempting vaginal birth despite a child being too large to do so safely.
    • The newborn presenting in positions other than head first during delivery, which may result in complications.

    What types of accidents occur during birth?

    • Oxygen Deprivation
    • Intellectual Disability
    • Birth asphyxia
    • Brain swelling
    • Facial nerve damage
    • Skull fracture
