A birth injury is an injury suffered by a newborn during the labor and delivery process. Birth injuries can be grounds for legal action when they are the result of medical negligence on the part of a doctor, nurse, or other member of the delivery team. Common errors include the improper use of forceps or suction devices and failure to ensure adequate oxygen to the fetus. Some of the most devastating birth injuries are cerebral palsy and Erb’s palsy.
A birth defect involves harm to the fetus prior to birth, during the expectant woman’s pregnancy. A number of factors can contribute to a birth defect, including heredity, the woman’s use of drugs during the pregnancy, and a doctor’s failure to diagnose or treat fetal problems in the womb. If a defect could reasonably have been prevented by a proper or more timely diagnosis, the doctor may be held liable for damages.
