Birth Injuries Have Devastating Effects
The birth of a child should be a joyous event that marks a new chapter in a family’s life. But for some, injuries occurring during labor and delivery compromise this happy time. In the most serious cases, birth complications can lead to lifelong problems and even death.
Conditions that may result from birth injuries include:
Brachial plexus inj
ury, also known as Erb’s palsy
Facial cuts, bruises, and paralysis
Fractures and broken bones
Loss of nerve or muscular function
Is Cerebral Palsy a Birth Injury?
Not all cerebral palsy is caused by a birth injury, but it is the most common serious birth injury. This neurologic disability affects muscle tone, body movement, and posture. Symptoms to watch for in a baby include developmental delays in physical milestones, floppy or stiff body parts, and abnormal posture. Another symptom is favoring the more functional side of their body for reaching, crawling, or other activity. These signs typically appear in the first few months of your child's life, but it is common for children not to be diagnosed until they are over two years old.
How Long Do I Have After a Birth Injury to Sue?
There are some special considerations in the state of New York that can extend the deadline to file a suit for birth injury up to ten years. Typically, you will have two and a half years after the day of the medical provider's negligence.
