What are the most common types and causes of birth injuries?

Recent statistics indicate that birth injuries have become less common over the past few decades with advancements in medicine, but there are still approximately 6-8 birth injuries for every 1000 live births. The most common types of birth injuries are:

  • Soft tissue injuries to the scalp and extremities due to applying a vacuum to the head during delivery and excessive force and pressure during deliver
  • Scalpel cuts during Cesarean deliveries
  • Brachial plexus injuries such as fractures in the arms, clavicle or cervical spine and paralysis of the arms known as Erb’s Palsy
  • Cranial nerve and spinal cord injuries often related to the use of forceps during delivery
  • Laryngeal nerve injuries due to head movements during delivery

There are many different factors that contribute to birth injuries including:

  • The use of forceps or vacuum suction during delivery
  • The size and shape of the mother’s pelvis
  • Breech vaginal deliveries
  • Prolonged labor
  • Excessive traction
  • Improper resuscitation
  • Extremely premature babies
  • Large-for-date babies

Regardless of the specific circumstances of your child’s delivery, your doctors, nurses and patient care techs have a duty to provide a certain standard of care. Depending upon your situation, the doctor must determine what type of delivery is safest for both you and your child and execute such a delivery without negligence. Following childbirth, the child must be thoroughly examined for any physical or neurological deficits that may have resulted during birth. Birth injuries often have significant and long-term complications if left untreated as soon as possible. Our trial-tested negligence attorneys have helped numerous parents recover compensation for their child’s injuries and are ready to answer any questions you may have about your own situation.

Quick and fair resolution to a unique case. On advice of my own attorney, I engaged Joseph Osborne of Osborne & Francis of Boca Raton, FL. Mr. Osborne had considerable experience in cases such as mine and the results showed that. Mr. Osborne and his staff were very helpful, kept me up to date, and listened to my input. The settlement was very fair as far as I am concerned.

“I am so thankful for EVERYONE, the entire staff at Osborne & Francis Law, for mentoring me through the mediation process with my hip replacement failures. I didn't realize how MUCH pressure they relieved me of by helping me deal with the reality of this traumatic time in my life, as it was OVER so quickly with a positive result. My family is grateful to have their mom HAPPY & FOCUSED on the future, rather than worrying over what happened in the past! FAST FORWARD, we are LIVING LIFE to the fullest once again!”

“Attorneys Greg Francis and Ryan Fletcher at Osborne & Francis Law Firm represented me in my personal injury case.The defendant drew a line in the sand and was adamant on a settlement amount I was almost willing to accept. After the dust settled and the smoke cleared, we settled for 3 times that amount!!! When they say ‘Real Tough Lawyers,’ they mean it.”

“I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer/ firm — everything was done professionally exactly how I wanted. Due to COVID my personal attorney Mr. Garcia was still able to make things work in a timely manner and he never made me feel like he wasn’t working. Overall I’m happy with how my case turned out and I would recommend him and this law firm to anyone. 100% satisfied.”
