Birth injuries are not always immediately recognizable. As parents notice their child’s failure to reach certain developmental milestones in early childhood, suspicions of birth trauma can arise.
Fetal distress is a common complication that occurs in pregnancy and the delivery process. Fetal distress defines incidents in which a baby does not receive enough oxygen in the womb, or during birth. In the long term, fetal distress during pregnancy, labor, and birth can lead to mental retardation, cerebral palsy, and other effects on the brain and development of a child.
Birth injuries such as fetal distress are often the result of negligence by medical staff. Doctors and nurses who fail to follow proper procedures or ignore the signs of complications throughout pregnancy can be held liable for causing a birth injury.
