What is a Birth Injury?

The birth of a child is a wonderful thing, but it's not without risk. Doctors, nurses, and other medical staff are expected to provide an acceptable standard of care to the mother and baby before birth, during labor, and after birth. A birth injury refers to any injury or illness that a mother or baby suffers due to the malpractice or negligence of a medical professional, which can include doctors, nurses, hospital staff, and others.

Most Common Types of Birth Injuries

At our firm, we realize that there is nothing quite as heartbreaking as watching your child suffer from a preventable injury. We provide caring representation in all birth injury cases across Kentucky.

Some of the most common birth injuries are:

If your child has been diagnosed with or suffered any of these conditions as a result of birth malpractice, contact the law firm of Paul A. Casi II, P.S.C. at (502) 234-7451 so that we can fight for the compensation your child deserves.

Types of Obstetrical Emergencies

There are certain situations where the life of a baby or mother may be in danger during childbirth. Although these emergencies are rare, they must be handled quickly and properly to prevent serious problems.

Your doctor should be able to accurately recognize the signs of an emergency during childbirth and should respond quickly to provide appropriate care. If that includes an emergency cesarean section, or another act, it should be performed as soon as possible to avoid further complications or loss of life.

As Louisville birth injury attorneys with more than 35 years of combined experience, we know what to look for and how to build effective cases against doctors for failures to handle emergencies during childbirth.

We can take on cases involving all types of obstetrical emergencies, including:

  • Placental abruption, which occurs when the placenta begins to pull away from the wall of the uterus. This presents a problem for both mother and baby, as the mother may be at risk of hemorrhage and the baby may suffer from a lack of oxygen. In some cases, this can lead to maternal wrongful death.
  • Umbilical cord prolapse occurs when part of the umbilical cord comes out of the uterus before or along with the presenting part of the baby. It is a rare but dangerous condition, as the umbilical cord may become compressed, and the baby may experience a lack of oxygen.

Our team also handles cases involving pre-eclampsia, sepsis, blood clots, and amniotic fluid embolism.

We will review medical records and talk to you about what occurred to begin putting together a clear picture of whether negligence may have been involved. If your doctor or facility failed to provide standard care, we can seek to hold them accountable for your child’s medical care, ongoing treatment, and other damages.

Signs That Your Child Suffered a Birth Injury

Did your child have a low Apgar score? Have CT or MRI scans revealed evidence of brain damage? Have tests revealed injuries to other organs, such as the lungs or kidneys? Has your child suffered from seizures, poor feeding, or low tone? These may be signs of a birth injury involving asphyxia or hypoxia.

If you have reason to believe that your child has suffered an injury due to a problem during birth, speak with an attorney. At Paul A. Casi, II, P.S.C., our Louisville birth injury attorneys have 35 years of combined legal experience to handle even the most challenging birth injury cases. Let us help you find out what went wrong.

Securing Your Child’s Future Treatment & Care

Children who suffer birth injuries are typically left with lifelong disabilities. These are disabilities that require around-the-clock supervision and care and extensive medical treatment. These children typically require extensive physical, speech, and occupational therapy. They also need specialized equipment and medications. Our goal is to get you the financial compensation necessary to cover the costs associated with your child's lifelong care.

Together, we can hold accountable those whose malpractice causes birth injuries. Call (502) 234-7451 to schedule a free consultation and learn more about how our birth injury lawyers near you can help you.
