If your baby has been diagnosed with any type of mental disorder, delayed or impaired motor skills or Cerebral Palsy it could very well be the result of medical malpractice or doctor negligence during delivery or following the birthing process. Many injuries sustained at birth, or during the process of giving birth can result in significant medical, emotional and financial challenges over the course of a lifetime.

Causes Of Birth Injuries

Many types of injuries at birth can be prevented. For instance, Cerebral Palsy, a common type of birth injury , is the manifestation of a lack of sufficient oxygen to the fetus during labor. This lack of oxygen starts out as perinatal asphyxia. The prolonged lack of oxygen ultimately causes permanent brain tissue damage. The obstetrician team should be able to prevent this lack of oxygen by monitoring variations in the heart rate of the fetus during birth. Other types of birth injuries, such as fractures, paralysis and nerve trauma can be the end result of the doctor or healthcare practitioner being too rough or forceful while delivering the baby. Certain types of birth injuries, such as Shoulder Dystocia, are a result of the fetus being too large or awkwardly positioned in the uterus.

How A Maryland Birth Injury Attorney Can Help 

Where and how your child’s birth injury occurred dictates who is responsible or accountable for your injuries.

In other cases a third party or corporate entities such as hospitals or health care organizations are responsible. Regardless, Maryland Birth Injury Attorney Tom Kemp can help you to obtain the full amount of financial compensation for your injuries based on pain and suffering, current medical expenses, future medical costs and rehabilitation.
