The birth of a child is a joyous occasion. However, birth defects and injuries during birth can be devastating. Just as healthcare professionals are responsible for our health each day, they are responsible for a baby’s health before, during, and after delivery. Birth defects and injuries can lead to a lifetime of treatment, medical bills, and unnecessary pain and suffering for the child in addition to the anguish of parents who wonder what could have been done to protect their child. There are two types of long term conditions that can be prevented that sometimes occur during the delivery process. Cerebral Palsy can occur when the umbilical cord becomes wrapped around the baby’s neck, preventing oxygen from getting to the brain. Babies with cerebral palsy can have trouble moving or even swallowing. Erb’s Palsy occurs when the nerves between the shoulders and the spine are damaged during delivery— sometimes when excessive pressure or pulling is used during delivery. Babies with this disorder often have trouble with coordination and movement, and surgery is often required to correct these problems. A Fort Lauderdale birth injury lawyer at David W.
