What are some common types of birth injuries?

Birth injuries are, unfortunately, not uncommon.  Whenever a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional fails to provide sufficient medical care before, during, and after birth, he or she may be held responsible for causing a birth injury.  One of the most common types of birth injuries is cerebral palsy.  Other common birth injuries include Erb's palsy, shoulder dystocia, facial paralysis, fractures, cephalohematoma (bleeding that occurs underneath the skull), and caput succedaneum (severe swelling or bruising of a baby's head).  Contact the Birmingham, Alabama cerebral palsy and birth injury lawyers at Lanny Vines & Associates, LLC today if your child has suffered due to the negligence of a medical professional.

How can I tell whether my child has cerebral palsy?

Cerebral palsy is usually recognized between the ages of two and three, although some babies might show developmental disabilities much sooner.  If your child displays any of the following signs, you should contact our Alabama cerebral palsy injury lawyers to determine if you have a case.  Signs of cerebral palsy include:

  • Struggling with fine motor skills.
  • The inability to sit upright.
  • Uncontrollable muscle spasms.
  • The inability to hold the head up.
  • Weakened facial muscles and drooling.

Depending on the type and degree of cerebral palsy that your child has, he or she may be responsive to a number of treatments, including medication, physical therapy, speech therapy, the use of crutches or a wheel chair, and specialized care from a caregiver.  To discuss the possibility of filing a lawsuit against a negligent doctor, nurse, or hospital, contact our Birmingham birth injury lawyers today.
