Birth Injury Sustained Because of Medical Malpractice
A birth injury in Bluefield, or anywhere in West Virginia, is attributable to medical malpractice in many cases. Under normal circumstances, when under the care of a competent medical professional, a severe, disabling birth injury is preventable. Whenever an allegation of a birth injury is due to alleged medical malpractice, the defense attorney will almost always attempt to blame the injury on a birth defect. Birth injuries include:
- Brachial Palsy
- Brain Injuries (which can lead to Cerebral Palsy)
- Caput Succedaneum
- Erb’s Palsy
- Facial Paralysis
- Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy
- Klumpke’s Palsy
- Phrenic Nerve Paralysis
Fortunately, it is fairly easy to determine whether or not a birth injury is due to a genetic predisposition to having a given disability or is the result of medical negligence resulting in injury or disability to an otherwise healthy infant. According to the CDC, birth defects are “structural changes in one or more parts of the body.” You can find a list of common birth defects here. Obviously, structural changes are much different than injuries.
