Brain Injury – Malpractice Attorneys in Phoenix – Arizona

Brain Injuries - Arizona Medical Malpractice Lawyer - Arizona Burg SimpsonTraumatic brain injuries are a major cause of infant disabilities. These injuries can be the result of an extended labor or blunt force trauma. Brain injuries suffered during childbirth are easily preventable. While prompt medical care and exhaustive rehabilitation can help some infants recover fully, other children are left permanently disabled.

Symptoms a newborn with a brain injury can exhibit include:

  • Larger than normal forehead
  • Misshapen spine
  • Distorted facial features
  • Unusually small heads (more prominent in smaller infants)
  • Seizures
  • Neck stiffness
  • Difficulties in focusing the eyes

If your child has been critically injured during birth, get in touch with a Phoenix malpractice lawyer at Burg Simpson in Arizona by calling 602-777-7000 or by filling out our Free Case Evaluation form.

Several things, including medical errors, can cause a brain injury during childbirth. Generally, one or more of the following is involved:

  • Asphyxiation/Oxygen
  • Physical Trauma.
  • Infection/Toxins.
  • Jaundice.
  • Stroke.
  • Brain Malformation.

If your baby endured a brain injury during delivery, reach out to the experienced medical malpractice lawyers at Burg Simpson Arizona’s office as soon as possible by calling 602-777-7000.

Birth brain injuries can include:

  • Subdural hematoma: A pooling of the blood between the brain and its outer covering.
  • Brain hemorrhage: Bleeding in or around the brain. These can be classified as subarachnoid, intraventricular, and intraparenchymal.
  • Skull fracture: Skull fractures can be closed, open, depressed, or basal.
  • Cerebral hypoxia: Brain damage caused by oxygen deprivation.

If you have had a traumatic or prolonged delivery that contributed to brain damage to your child, speak to a Phoenix malpractice attorney immediately by calling 602-777-7000.

More than half of infant brain injuries could be prevented with proper monitoring during delivery and prompt responses to any warning signs that emerge. Some of the most frequent mistakes that can occur during delivery include:

  • Improper administration of medications or anesthesia during delivery.
  • Misdiagnosis or missed diagnosis.
  • A lack of vigilant observation of the fetus, and potential fetal distress.
  • A delayed Caesarean section procedure.
  • Lack of timely administration of oxygen after birth.
  • Missing an infection in the newborn.
