What Is A Birth Injury?

Understanding Birth Injuries in Birmingham

A birth injury is any type of physical or psychological harm that is caused during labor and delivery. It can occur when a medical professional is negligent or inexperienced and falls short of their duty of care.

These injuries can range from mild to severe and can be caused by a variety of factors, such as:

  • Medical mistakes
  • Chemical exposure
  • Poor nutrition
  • Birth assistance devices.

Common examples of birth injuries include:

  • Brachial plexus
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Bone fractures
  • Asphyxia
  • Erb’s Palsy

Here are some common questions people have about birth injuries in Birmingham:

Why Do I Need A Birmingham Birth Injury Attorney?

You don’t have to go through your case alone when you can seek justice with our skilled attorneys’ help. Our lawyers will explore all legal avenues available, fight aggressively on your behalf, and thoroughly investigate each aspect of the case. We’ll do everything possible to secure the best outcomes for you and your family.

Who Can Be Held Responsible for A Birth Injury?

The responsible party or parties may depend on the specific circumstances. It could be the doctor who delivered the baby, or it could be the hospital where the delivery took place. In some cases, it may be possible to hold more than one party responsible.

How Do I Know If My Child Has Suffered a Birth Injury?

Birth injuries may not be immediately noticeable—some may show up right away, while others may take months or years before they become apparent. Signs of a potential birth injury include developmental delays, seizures, paralysis, loss of motor function, difficulty breathing, and swallowing problems.

Is There a Time Limit for Filing a Birth Injury Case?

Yes. In Alabama, there is generally a two-year statute of limitations from when the injury occurred. If you think your child was injured as an infant, you must file your claim within two years of their birth date for it to be considered valid. Acting quickly is important because this time limit cannot be extended.
