About Infant Brain Damage

Babies, especially newborns, are extremely fragile and should be handled with the utmost care. If a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional fails to act with adequate care and attention, it could result in serious damage to your child. Babies can suffer brain damage for a number of different reasons, but the most common reason is air deprivation. During especially difficult or long births, babies may sometimes be deprived of oxygen, which can lead to temporary or permanent brain damage.

Other causes of infant brain damage include, but are not limited to:

  • Jaundice: If a baby has an excessive amount of bilirubin in his or her blood, it can cause jaundice, which may also result in brain damage.
  • Physical Trauma: The incorrect use of medical tools, especially to aid birth, can seriously harm infants and may cause significant brain damage. Or, if a child is twisted by the doctor during labor, incorrectly delivered or handled, he or she could suffer brain damage.
  • Infections: Infections in either the mother or the child can lead to brain damage.

If your baby suffers brain damage it can result in a significant change in your life and the life of your child. Some damage may be temporary, but other damage may be long-lasting or permanent. Whatever the circumstances of your baby’s injury, if it was caused by medical negligence or unreasonable errors, our firm can help.
