Birth Injury

Jackson Birth Injury Attorneys

Helping West Tennessee families traumatized by labor or delivery negligence protect themselves and their futures

Parents often look at the birth of their precious new baby as a special time in their lives. When that experience is marred by a traumatic birth injury, it can be devastating. The process of giving birth is ideally uneventful, but complications do happen. When a tender newborn’s injuries turn out to be a result of negligence on the part of the physician or other medical professionals, parents may be able to take legal action on behalf of their child.

The experienced Jackson birth injury attorneys at Bailey & Greer, PLLC, have helped countless families throughout West Tennessee by obtaining justice on their behalf in the form of compensation for their child’s injuries, for their anguish, and for their pain and suffering. Our compassionate birth injury lawyers work with medical specialists to investigate your case, to determine who is at fault, and to prepare a compelling case on your behalf.

Common causes of birth injuries

According to an article in the journal Cureus, a birth injury is defined as structural damage or functional deterioration of a newborn secondary to a traumatic event that occurred during labor, delivery, or both.

Some of the factors that can contribute to a birth injury include the following:

  • Improper use of medical equipment, such as forceps or vacuum extractor
  • Failure to properly monitor the mother or fetus
  • Fetus is too large, or the head is too large to pass through the birth canal
  • Oxygen deprivation
  • Delayed birth

Doctors, nurses, midwives, and emergency medical personnel are all highly educated, trained, and fully qualified to care for women who are giving birth and for the infants being born. Human error is always possible, but absolute incompetence and misconduct on the part of these professionals can have deadly consequences. One mistaken impression of what is occurring can cause a chain reaction of missteps that can lead to injury and heartache.

Types of birth injuries

There are several different types of birth injuries, such as brain injuries that occur from oxygen deprivation, physical and muscle-related injuries that sometimes happen with bigger babies, and head trauma from the improper use of medical implements such as forceps. Here are a few examples of various kinds of birth injury cases our firm can handle:

  • HIE (hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy)
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Brachial plexus injuries
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Cephalohematoma
  • Subconjunctival hemorrhage
  • Facial paralysis
  • Caput Succedaneum
  • Bone fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries
