Unfortunately, things can go wrong during the birthing process. A birth injury can occur leaving your child with a spinal cord injury. In many instances, the injury could have been prevented.
A spinal cord injury can occur if a baby is in an abnormal position, such as breech. Because the baby’s spine is susceptible to injury during these moments, doctors have been trained in specified procedures that reduce the risk of injury to the baby.
However, there are situations where the doctors and medical staff fail to exercise proper care and techniques resulting in a spinal cord injury to the baby.
If your baby is a victim of a birth injury, you may be able to hold the negligent parties liable. You will have to prove that the medical staff and hospital were negligent and that their actions led to your child’s birth injury. This is a difficult process.
