Utah Birth Injury Attorney
A birth injury may be the result of improper prenatal care or may occur during the birth process. More often than not, a birth injury is a direct result of a health care provider’s failure to properly diagnosis or treats a particular condition.
For instance, genetic issues in a baby during a pregnancy are sometimes undiagnosed by a physician when all the warning signs and symptoms should have caught. Another common scenario is when a doctor fails to properly treat an infection in a mother and the infection is passed to the child. Prior and during the birth, a physician should properly spot, diagnose, and treat an signs that the baby is in distress. This may include properly performing a C section. Following the birth of a child, a doctor should properly treat the baby for any infections or post-birth complications.
Common birth injuries include:
- Erb’s Palsy
- Cerebral Palsy
- Shoulder Dystocia
- Brain Bleeds
