Nothing in this world is more heartening for a parent, than to see their child suffer because of irresponsible behavior or medical errors by a medical practitioner/doctor. Doctors and nurses are well trained and have the best technology to support them during the child birth process. Unfortunately, these medical practitioners do not use the technology when required or use it inappropriately during labor and delivery process resulting in serious birth injuries or at times even death.
Medical negligence can cause fetal distress or birth trauma which may result in brain injuries. In most scenarios the child has to live their whole life with a permanent birth defects like cerebral palsy, shoulder dystocia or brain damage.
The birth of a new baby is a wonderful news. Bringing a new baby home is a joyous time for the family. Unfortunately for 5 families out of 1,000, their joy is eclipsed by a birth injury. Cerebral palsy is the most commonly affected and most deadly birth defect which affects one baby in every 500 babies. Cerebral palsy causes permanent damage to the baby’s brain. The family of the little baby has to live with such serious birth injuries because of medical errors or negligence by medical professionals, and they have a right to justice.
A birth defect is a problem which develops in a baby even before its birth. Birth injuries are not the same, they are injuries sustained by the baby due to physical trauma during their birthing process. These injuries can surely be avoided. Baby can suffer from minor bruising to facing serious issues like permanent damage to nerves, brain or spinal cord.
