What Causes Birth Injuries in Georgia?
Doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers have an obligation to comply with the medical standards of child care. Pregnancy requires adequate management and constant monitoring from the initial sonograms until the time of birth. Any kind of discrepancy from those protocols lead to severe or even fatal injuries.
The most common causes of birth injuries include:
- Oxygen Deprivation – Caused by undeveloped lungs or a prolapsed umbilical cord, these type of injuries can range from mild to severe
- Delayed Birth – Babies can experience trauma from being in the birth canal longer than anticipated, but if the compression lasts for too long, a number of birth injuries can occur
- Medical Malpractice – Health care providers should be trained and experienced in prenatal, intrapartum and peripartum care, but instead, they demonstrate negligence and misconduct during critical birthing situations
