The birth of your child is a joyous and momentous occasion. Unfortunately, although you’ve prepared as much as you can at home and for the birth, injuries can occur during birth to your child. Improper use of forceps or other events that happen can cause lasting brain or birth defect injuries to your child. When this happens, it can mean a life altering experience for you and your child. It can mean years of therapies and in some cases, can lead to unfortunate death of the child. When your child has been the victim of a brain injury or birth defect injury, it’s important to consult with a Boston personal injury attorney to ensure that those who are responsible for the injury are held accountable.
Symptoms of Brain Injuries in Infants
There are a few telltale signs you can look for if you suspect your child was injured during birth. Brain damage in infants can show up as an abnormally large forehead, very small head, neck stiffness that the child is showing, or they could have seizures or their facial features may be distorted. Brain or birth defect injuries during birth can be caused by a number of things such as the improper use of forceps to help your baby out, or by the fact that your child was left too long in the birth canal.
