Houston couples who are anxiously awaiting the birth of their child can feel nervous excitement about the future. The birth of a child can be a joyous occasion for most families but occasionally a birth trauma can lead to unexpected injuries.
There are many different kinds of birth injuries that can occur because of a negligent medical provider. A baby can suffer a brain injury if they are subjected to a lack of oxygen before or after they are born. The use of forceps or a vacuum can lead to physical deformities. A baby can suffer from cerebral palsy from lack of oxygen. A delivery accident can lead to a newborn with Erb’s palsy. These and other serious complications can arise when a negligent medical provider does not do his or her job.
