Birth Injury Statistics
Birth injuries are defined as a complication that occurs during labor or during the delivery process. According to a National Healthcare Quality Report published by the Agency for Healthcare and Research Quality, as many as 7 out of 1000 births experience a preventable birth injury. The most common birth injuries are due to improper medical technique on the obstetrician’s part. Using incorrect tools such as forceps, a vacuum, or otherwise poorly timing a child’s accurate delivery date resulting in an unnecessarily early birth – all of these can lead to traumatic and irreversible birth injuries that can permanently affect a child’s life.
Common types of birth injuries include:
- Facial Paralysis
- Brain Injuries
- Cephalohematoma (Bleeding beneath the cranium)
- Bone Fractures
- Perinatal Asphyxia (When a baby does not receive sufficient oxygen)
- Cerebral Palsy
- Erbs Palsy
- Forceps Birth Injury
A child’s birth should be pure and healthy. There is no reason to start life with a disadvantage that could be prevented. A healthy birth, on its own, is an extremely expensive procedure to endure even with insurance. Most parents pay the full cost of the procedure over years out of pocket. Keeping up with these costs is hard enough. If you’ve already contacted a lawyer and your birth injury case is in progress, you may have already realized that these cases can take time and you’re quickly running out of money to meet your living expenses.
