Infant Brain Damage: What Causes It?

An infant's brain is fragile and requires attentive care. The smallest mistake can cause oxygen deprivation (also known as hypoxia) and irreversible brain damage. Signs of infant brain damage include distinct physical features, difficult temperament, developmental delay, trouble focusing, jaundice, seizures and more.

While it may not be immediately evident what medical error occurred, we will thoroughly research your case to determine if one of the following problems contributed to your child's brain damage:

  • Failure to recognize fetal distress/improper fetal monitoring
  • Vacuum extractor injury or forceps injury
  • Umbilical cord compression
  • Skull compression
  • Failure to do a timely C-section
  • Separation of placenta from the uterus

Compensation For The Future

Mild or severe brain damage can affect a child for his or her entire life. Cerebral palsy and other disabilities may mean years of therapy and rehabilitation, let alone the present medical bills that you face. To determine future expenses and to ensure that a child's needs will be properly provided for throughout his or her life, we may retain professionals who will prepare a Life Care Plan to properly present this aspect of the case to a jury. Through a personal injury claim, we can help you to obtain fair and adequate compensation to pay your past and future medical bills, pain, suffering, disability, and loss of enjoyment of life, and to help you and your family move forward.
