Killino Firm is highly experienced in birth injury cases and medical malpractice lawsuits. They’ll provide you with the aggressive and compassionate representation you deserve.
While it is necessary to recognize that not all birth injuries are the result of medical malpractice, it’s also as important to let the experts be the judge of your case. Professionals know best how to determine the cause of birth injury, and an experienced attorney in Miami will get to the heart of the events that led to your infant’s birth injury.
The majority of birth injuries could have been prevented with diligent medical care on the part of the medical staff. Some of the most common birth injuries include:
Brain-related injury. Oxygen deprivation can occur when the brain is starved for oxygen. The leading brain-related injury is cerebral palsy, affecting almost one million children; many of these cases could have been prevented with preventative measures by the doctor. Some common causes of preventable CP include:
- The physician’s failure to treat or detect maternal infection
- The physician’s failure to properly plan for or carry out a C-section
- The physician’s failure to diagnose and treat a prolapsed umbilical cord
- Improper use of birth assisting tools
Injuries from delivery are a common occurrence and can be prevented through their proper use or through reduction of use when not necessary. Vacuum extractors and forceps were invented to assist in delivery, however too often they are being used to speed up delivery for the convenience of the doctor or nurse. Injuries from improper use include lacerations, skull fractures and more.
Brachial Plexus Injuries or BPI, occur as the result of damage to the nerves that are located in the upper spine and travel to the neck, shoulders, arms and hands. BPI damage during birth can result in mild to severe temporary or permanent injury. If your infant has been diagnosed with BPI, contact the birth injury attorney from Killino Firm in Miami.
Spinal cord injuries are also common as the result of forceps being improperly used or used when not necessary. These can cause paralysis as well as other neurologic problems for the infant.
Fractures can occur when a physical pulls too hard on the infant during a breach of difficult birth or when the shoulder is forcefully pulled on for too long. While these types of injuries most always heal quickly with proper medical care, the negligent physical must be held accountable for their actions.
