Vernon Birth Injury Lawyer

In Canada, according to the National Post, the loss of life during labour and delivery is relatively low. All told, there are approximately five infant deaths for every 1,000 babies that are born. The rate of maternal deaths is even lower, with only six deaths out of every 100,000 deliveries. But those numbers only scratch the surface of the impact of a catastrophic delivery.

The rate of medical injuries which occur in these cases is significantly higher. They can impact both the mother and the child and have permanent repercussions. While some catastrophic births are unavoidable, many result from negligent medical care.

If your family is suffering from a tragic complication at birth, you may benefit from discussing it with a birth injury law firm. The Preszler team of Vernon personal injury lawyers proudly serve as an advocate for local families facing this difficult time. Contact us right away to discuss your case.

When birth injuries occur

In some cases, medical mistakes can happen during labour or delivery. If the mother and the child are not properly monitored, serious complications may arise. However, the reasons for a catastrophic birth can begin much earlier. A medical issue or injury can arise from mistakes made early on in the pregnancy. If a doctor or medical professional is negligent in treating the mother during pregnancy, the mistake could have a lasting impact– which is only detected when the child is born. A birth injury lawyer might be able to identify the negligent treatment that caused this.

Common birth injuries

There is a wide range of possible birth issues for both the mother as well as the child.

  • Bone fractures of the humerus, proximal femur, or cranium
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Intracranial hemorrhaging
  • Muscle damage and soft tissue tears
  • Facial paralysis
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Brachial plexus injury
  • cerebral palsy
  • Hypoxic injuries
  • Ischemic injuries
  • Umbilical cord damage
  • Uterine rupture
