Common Surrey birth injuries

A birth injury is usually discovered during or after delivery, but they can occur at any point during the pregnancy. These injuries often occur during labor or delivery. However, medical errors that occur during pregnancy might not become apparent until after delivery.

While some catastrophic events occur with no one at fault, many stem from the negligence of the medical profession. When these errors occur, a birth injury lawyer may be able to help the victim’s family recover monetary compensation from the responsible person or entity.

The nature of a birth injury depends entirely on the circumstances. Treatment may be available in some cases, while others can have a life-long debilitating impact. In some cases, a child could suffer more than one of these injuries. Some of the most common birth injuries include:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Brain injuries
  • Hypoxic/ischemic injuries
  • Uterine rupture
  • Umbilical cord compression
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Lacerations and bruising
  • Cephalohematoma
  • Facial paralysis
  • Intracranial hemorrhage
  • Brachial plexus injury
  • Fractures
