Our Montgomery County birth injury attorneys know the challenges parents face when their newborn is injured during or after their delivery, and focus on producing results for each family who suffers these traumatic circumstances, so they can pursue the financial recovery they deserve for the short- or long-term care they or the baby needs going forward.

What are the Most Common Types of Birth Injuries That Occur in Gaithersburg, Maryland?

There are dozens of things that can go wrong during the birth of a child, and that is never truer than when negligence is a factor during the delivery.

The reality is, medical malpractice can exist at every level of emergency care, hospital admissions, or even scheduled childbirth circumstances that can devastate new parents during a time when they should be celebrating their new baby’s arrival.

Common causes of birth injuries in Gaithersburg, Maryland may include but are not limited to:

  • Bruising and forceps marks
  • Lacerations, scratching, or scarring
  • Bone fractures
  • Facial paralysis
  • Brachial Plexus Palsy, also known as Erb’s Palsy
  • Oxygen deprivation
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Intracranial hemorrhage
  • Spinal cord injuries

  • Head and neck injuries
  • Brain injury and/or damage
  • Cephalohematoma
  • Nerve damage
  • Paralysis
  • Subconjunctival hemorrhage
  • Caput Succedaneum

Unfortunately, some babies are unable to survive birth injuries that occur during or after their delivery, which leaves parents reeling from the traumatic loss that is seemingly impossible to overcome.
