Learn how medical malpractice causes birth injuries and what to do if you believe your child has suffered a birth injury.

Top Birth Injuries Caused by Medical Malpractice

When medical practitioners do not know what’s happening in the delivery room or how to respond to events appropriately, mothers and children may be injured as a result.

Common birth injuries caused by medical malpractice include the following:

  • Anoxia, hypoxia, or another form of oxygen deprivation
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Persistent pulmonary hypertension
  • Prolapsed uterus or perineal tears for the mother
