Facial Paralysis: New York Birth Injury Lawyers
Facial Paralysis (Facial nerve palsy due to birth trauma) in newborns is a birth defect caused by a compression or damage to the facial nerve either while in the mother's womb or through a traumatic delivery.
A common way to diagnose facial paralysis is by watching the newborn baby as it cries. Damage to the facial nerve, also called the seventh cranial nerve, will show on the baby's face. The newborn child will not be able to move the side or portion of the face, including eyes and mouth, that has been inflicted by facial paralysis.

Many cases of facial paralysis are not permanent. Usually the nerve fiber has not been damaged or torn to an extent for the baby to suffer lifelong consequences due to the traumatic birth delivery or other cause of facial paralysis. In these cases, the side of the baby's face that is afflicted by the paralysis sustains the lack of movement for several weeks until the paralysis slowly wanes and the infant is able to control more and more of his/her facial muscles.
