All that parents want is a healthy baby. However, a medical mistake, hospital error or medical negligence can lead to a birth injury that leaves your infant with permanent brain damage, changing the course of your newborn’s life and your life.

The most common cause of brain damage during the labor and delivery process is a lack of oxygen to the brain. This can be the result of fetal distress, an umbilical cord that has prolapsed or wrapped around the baby, or a baby who becomes caught in the birth canal.

If your baby suffered brain damage during birth, understanding what caused the injury is critical. Did the doctor or hospital fail to monitor your baby’s vital signs during labor? Did the doctor or hospital fail to deliver your baby in a timely manner? Did they respond correctly when they discovered your baby was in distress? Did you doctor fail to perform an emergency c-section at a reasonable time?
