Your Child Injury Questions Answered

We have straight answers to difficult questions to help you make critical decisions, navigate legal process and help you get justice.

Following an accident, there are always more questions than answers. At Thomas J. Henry, we’re here to answer any questions you have about your injury case.

Childbirth injuries are not always obvious immediately afterward. Moms and dads will oftentimes notice certain things that are out of the ordinary once they take their newborn baby home – sometimes weeks or months later. In addition, some symptoms and signs of a birth injury aren’t apparent until much later.

Here are signs and symptoms of a childbirth injury:

  • Fever
  • Coughing
  • Constipation
  • Hearing loss
  • Vision issues
  • Sinus inflammation
  • Low weight gain

Other physical symptoms of a birth injury in a child include:

  • Weak movement
  • Poor reflexes
  • Spasms
  • Muscle stiffness
  • Hands held in claw-like poses

Common conditions that can result from birth injuries include:

  • Cerebral Palsy and Erb’s Palsy
  • Nerve damage
  • Damage to the skull
  • Brain damage
  • Future learning disabilities
  • Delayed early development (crawling, walking, talking)

Birth injuries can be caused by many different factors. Common causes of childbirth injuries include:

  • Infection
  • Lack of oxygen
  • Neonatal sepsis
  • Preeclampsia
  • Dangerous medications
  • Traumatic delivery
  • Improper manipulation of the baby (potentially with tools including vacuums, forceps)
  • Failure to monitor baby’s vital signs

If childbirth injuries were preventable — for the mother or baby — the doctors, nurses, surgeons, and medical institution can be held accountable.

Injuries during childbirth can happen to anyone. However, some women find themselves in a high risk pregnancy. These situations require a higher level of attention and care on the part of the physician, and if high the high risk pregnancy symptoms and signs are not spotted or found in time, there could be grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Women with prior health conditions, such as:

  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney disease
  • Autoimmune disease (lupus, multiple sclerosis)
  • Thyroid disease
  • Obesity
  • HIV/AIDS
  • Teenagers
  • Women over 35 having their first child
  • Alcohol use during pregnancy
  • Smoking (and secondhand smoke)

Injuries to the mother that can occur during pregnancy include:

  • Abnormal uterine bleeding
  • Fissures
  • Infection
  • Preeclampsia or eclampsia
  • Vaginal tears or lacerations
  • Death

Mothers can also experience mental injuries as a result of a traumatic birth, including depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Private schools differ with public schools in that they do not receive immunity. For instance, if your child is seriously injured on the playground or on an off-campus field trip, parents may sue the private schools due to negligence and receive compensation for their child’s injuries.

Did you know that if your child is injured at a public school the school may not have to pay any damages for your child’s injuries? Public schools are protected in some situations by governmental immunity. If your child has been injured due to public school negligence, contact our offices. Our experienced child injury attorneys will help determine if your child has a case against the school.
