Birth injuries and complications range from serious to mild and can be caused by:
- Prima gravida
- Maternal pelvic abnormalities
- Incorrect staff training
- Prolonged or rapid labor
- Incorrect monitoring of child and infant
- Improper use of forceps or vacuums
- Large fetal head
- Lack of supervision of medical staff
- Fetal anomalies
- Poor hygiene on the part of medical staff
If an injury was preventable, parents and families do have a right to seek compensation for their child’s injuries. This compensation is often vital in helping parents provide the best medical care for their injured infant. In cases when injuries are severe or permanent, especially, compensation money can be vital to provide a lifetime of medical care, at home care, medical treatment, and other needed services to provide the highest standard of care for a child.
A birth injury, especially a brain injury in Deerfield Beach or Florida, can affect a child's quality of life permanently. A child who has suffered a serious head injury, or brain injury, for example, may never be able to have a career or a job. Compensation becomes important in providing caregivers and in replacing lost potential income as well as providing a high standard of medical care.
