There are multiple types of birth injuries, including:

- Perinatal asphyxia
- Facial paralysis
- Subconjunctival hemorrhage

What Causes Birth Injuries?
There are some factors that can contribute to the risk of a birth injury, such as:
- Abnormal fetal position
- Difficult / prolonged labor or deliver
- Shape of mother’s pelvis
- Babies born prematurely—before 37 weeks
- Babies born abnormally large—over 8 pounds, 13 ounces
However, a healthcare professional should be able to manage these situations and protect the health of both mother and baby whenever possible. There are reasonable expectations for the standard of care provided by a medical professional in these situations. In some cases, birth injuries do not constitute medical malpractice claims. You should speak with our attorney at Traywick Law Offices to learn more about your case and your options.
