According to New York state officials, on average approximately one quarter of a million babies are born every year in New York. Nearly a third of all babies born in the United States are afflicted with some kind of birth defect or birth injury. Moreover, birth injuries and defects are the leading causes of death in newborns. There are more than 4,000 documented types of known birth defects.

Common birth injuries include:

  • Subconjunctival Hemorrhage
  • Caput Succedaneum
  • Cephalohematoma
  • Facial Paralysis
  • Brachial Palsy
  • Fractured Bones
  • Brain Injuries
  • Hearing Impairment

While not all birth injuries can be attributed to medical malpractice, there are many cases where the negligence of a healthcare provider is indeed at fault for the injury to a baby. One common birth injury is excessive bruising caused by aggressive deliveries. Marks left by forceps and other instruments used during the birthing process may harm more than help the newborn and leave lifelong scarring.

There are many different causes of birth injuries. Premature birth, prolonged labor, and the weight of a baby are all factors that contribute to possible birth injuries. If your child was injured during birth, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. Please contact Kleinick Law today for a free initial consultation.
