Common Birth Injuries

When someone goes to the hospital to give birth, this is supposed to be a happy time. Furthermore, this is one of the few happy moments when someone shows up at the hospital. Other times, people might be sick or injured. This time, it is for the birth of a healthy baby. On the other hand, there are times when the birth might not go according to plan. In this situation, serious birth injuries can result. There are a few key birth injuries that people should note.

Nerve Injuries to the Baby
One of the most common injuries is actually nerve damage to the baby. When the baby is born, his or her arm might get stretched farther than it should. When this happens, this can lead to nerve damage to a critical bundle of nerves called the brachial plexus. Damage to the brachial plexus can lead to the loss of function to the arm. This might end up with the arm permanently balled up in a fist or stretched out with the hand extended. This might even be a lifelong disability.
Hypoxic Damage to the Brain
It is also possible that the baby might suffer from severe oxygen deprivation during the birth process. While other organs might recover, the brain might not. This is referred to as hypoxic brain damage. If a baby suffers brain damage during the birthing process, this might lead to developmental disabilities that could have otherwise been avoided. This could result in the parents providing care for the child for the rest of his or her life.
Bone Fractures During Birth
Finally, a birth injury lawyer in Toronto can also address issues related to bone fractures suffered during the birthing process. If a baby is not in the right position during birth, or if maneuvers are used to make the birthing process easier, the child might end up suffering bone fractures. Some of these bone fractures can be quite severe, leading to nerve damage and severed blood vessels. This can lead to major complications that everyone should note.
Birth Injuries Are Serious
These are only a few of the numerous birth injuries a baby might suffer during the birthing process. Some of these injuries might require surgery and could leave him or her with disabilities that last the rest of his or her life. Remember that no family has to face this situation alone. Trained professionals are willing to help.
