Birth Injury Types
Injury to newborns during pregnancy, labor, delivery, or the post-delivery period is called "birth injury." The brain is frequently involved in the damage. This can be diagnosed shortly after delivery or take some time before it is noticed. Birth injuries can leave you unable for the rest of your life.
Obstetrical neglect usually refers to mistakes made before, during, or shortly after a child's birth. Obstetrical malpractice can result in severe injuries with long-term consequences.
Cerebral palsy (CP) is a neurological condition that affects mobility, muscle tone, and posture. Damage to the brain causes cerebral palsy. This might be due to a shortage of oxygen or brain damage sustained before or shortly after birth.
A child's diagnosis of CP may come later in life. Contact a cerebral palsy attorney to find out if your cerebral palsy was caused by obstetrical negligence.
Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy
HIE stands for hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, a brain injury caused by a lack of oxygen. "Hypoxia" refers to a significant shortage of oxygen. As a result, the newborn may experience developmental or cognitive delays, motor disability, and even persistent seizures, depending on the severity of the HIE.
A skilled medical malpractice lawyer should examine birth-related hypoxia, including a thorough study of medical records and brain imaging.
Kernicterus, Stroke, and Hypoglycemic Injury
A perinatal stroke is a neurological condition caused by brain damage that occurs before or soon after birth. It is critical to discuss the chronology of the disease and the subtype of the stroke with a medical malpractice lawyer specializing in these sorts of cases to determine the etiology of a stroke.
Hypoglycemic brain damage ensues when an infant's brain does not receive enough glucose. To determine if the harm might have been avoided, examine the infant's whole clinical state, the timing of the symptoms, the brain imaging, and any action that took place.
Kernicterus is a sort of brain injury that can happen to a youngster who has been exposed to a lot of jaundice. The damage happens when bilirubin levels in the blood rise to dangerously high levels, causing a brain problem. So it's critical to look into every case of kernicterus.

An impairment that is little or only lasts a short time
Victims and their families nearly invariably experience pain and suffering due to medical mistakes and neglect. Therefore, a formal lawsuit may not be the best action if the resulting harm is not permanent. In these situations, you should contact the appropriate regulator (for example, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario) or the hospital's Patient Relations department to express your concerns.
