In the United States, 27 out of every 1000 babies suffer some sort of birth injury. A “birth injury” is any type of damage to an infant’s body before, during or just after birth. Sadly, birth injuries are often preventable and result from medical staff negligence or malpractice. Birth injuries that are typically associated with medical mistakes or malpractice include:

  • skin irritations
  • temporary paralysis
  • fractured collar bone
  • fractured arm
  • Erb’s (Brachial) Palsy
  • temporary facial paralysis
  • Klumpke’s Palsy
  • Brachial Plexus Palsy
  • Caput Succedaneum
  • Cephalohematoma
  • brain damage
