Our Brain Injury Accident Attorneys are Ready to Help
When physicians swear an oath to “do no harm,” this promise goes double for medical professionals present during labor and delivery; they are responsible not only for a mother’s life, but also for her infant’s first breaths. Sadly, medical negligence and malpractice sometimes voids this promise, occurring far too often and causing a range of birth injuries, including brain injury at birth. If you or someone you love has been affected, contact a Cammarasana & Bilello birth injury attorney to evaluate your legal options.
Risk Factors for Infant Brain Injury at Birth
Our Brain Injury Attorneys will assist you in understanding several warning signs that may indicate potential infant brain injury. These include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Placental Abruption
- Changes in Baby’s Heart Rate
- Compressed Umbilical Cord
- Diabetes in the Mother
- Hematological (blood) Disorders,
- Anemia or Sickle Cell Disease
- Hypertension Disorders, including Pre-Eclampsia or HELLP Syndrome
- Hypoxia (lack of oxygen to the fetus)
- Ligohydramnios (decreased levels of amniotic fluid)
- Uterine Rupture
The Role of Medical Professionals
Nurses, doctors, surgeons and other medical professionals cannot eliminate a woman or child’s risk factors, but they are required to address them accordingly. Failure to respond to signs of medical distress can result in birth injuries and permanent damage, including brain damage at birth. For some children, this may mean nervous system defects, cerebral palsy, and developmental problems related to the brain; for others, it equals learning disabilities, hearing loss, seizures, vision problems, and hyperactivity.
