Kentucky Newborn Clavicle Fracture Birth Injuries

Comments (0)
A Kentucky birth injury can happen at anytime and be the result of a number of factors. A birth injury can leave parents reeling and wondering what rights they have, if the birth injury was the result of negligence on behalf of the doctor or hospital staff.

Newborn Clavicle Fracture

One type of birth injury that can happen during the birthing process is a newborn clavicle fracture. This is a common birth injury that typically occurs during a more difficult and strenuous birth and can leave a newborn with a fractured collarbone.

In many instances, the baby’s shoulders become stuck at the mother’s pubic bone. A newborn clavicle fracture can occur when the delivering doctor is required to use forceps or a vacuum to help the baby out of the birth canal.

The delivering physician may be required to apply force to extract the newborn. The pulling force can result in the breaking of the baby’s clavicle. 

Your Rights

Unfortunately, in many cases, the birth injury is overlooked and can lead to future problems for the child, since the injury may not properly heal. An experienced Kentucky birth injury attorney can help you hold the negligent parties liable for your child’s injury.
