Infant Brain Damage
Lawyers for Los Angeles Birth & Brain Injury Claims
Infant brain damage may occur due to labor or delivery negligence or any form of medical malpractice related to childbirth. In general, natural childbirth may be a physically traumatic event for a baby, as he or she must pass through the birth canal. Some minor physical trauma is natural and is often limited to slight bruising. However, in complicated deliveries or in the presence of medical malpractice a baby may suffer from brain damage due to oxygen deficiency during delivery or perhaps direct head trauma due to improper use of forceps or a vacuum extractor in an assisted delivery.

Infant Brain Damage Caused by Malpractice
At times, a birth injury may be unavoidable. Genetic conditions, pregnancies involving drug or alcohol abuse, and similar situations may make it virtually impossible for a doctor to safely deliver a baby, but even in complicated situations a doctor is required to act in accordance with medical standards. A mistake or reckless act can cost a baby his or her future.
