The long-term consequences of birth injuries

People sustain many different types of injuries in medical centers, from surgical mistakes to medication errors. Having said that, for those who sustain a pregnancy-related injury, or give birth to a child who was injured during the birthing process, the experience can be particularly devastating. At the Annapolis Law Firm of Michael H. Bereston, we have seen firsthand how upsetting and challenging life can be for families who are going through these burdens firsthand.

Sadly, birth injuries can have long-term consequences for mothers, children and the entire family. In some cases, these injuries lead to the loss of life. However, even those who survive may struggle with a variety of setbacks, which may follow them for the rest of their lives. For example, children deprived of oxygen during the birthing process may have a completely different future as a result of brain damage. Or, a child may suffer from nerve damage due to a physician's errors while his or her mother was giving birth. Sometimes, physicians fail to spot problems that should have been seen sooner or they fail to take proper precautionary measures.

From financial problems brought on by additional health care expenses and therapy to physical pain and devastation due to the loss of life, these injuries are often extremely painful in many ways. Because pregnancy-related injuries are so serious, medical professionals who are responsible for this suffering cannot get away with their behavior. On our birth injuries page, you can read about cerebral palsy and many of the other types of ways that mothers and babies suffer.
