New York brain damage attorneys

A child who experiences a birth injury that causes brain damage is one of the most devastating realities of life.There are many indicators that suggest an injury occurred as a result of improper medical care, or insult to the brain during the birthing process. These include:

  • Poor sucking after birth
  • Seizure within the first 24 to 48 hours of life
  • The child is floppy at birth
  • The infant’s skin is blue or dusky at birth
  • The infant needs resuscitation at, or shortly after birth because he/she is not breathing
  • The baby who was born full-term, but does not go home at the same time as the mother
  • There is no family history of brain damage or low IQ
  • An uncomplicated pre-natal course
  • The mother’s water was ruptured for more than 24 hours; and there is meconium (fecal) staining on the baby at the time of delivery.

New York Traumatic Brain InjuryIn cases of infant brain damage, the labor and delivery records must be examined for irregular readings on the fetal heart monitor, meconium staining and fetal scalp blood pH determination. The labor records must show that a trained health care professional was available to activate the fetal heart monitor, inspect and analyze the strip continuously and intervene when fetal distress is observed.

There is a long history of linking oxygen deprivation and the pH reading to babies born with brain damage. Too low pH level will establish fetal distress and in many cases an immediate C-section should follow.

The medical providers caring for the expectant mother and the fetus are responsible to assure that they provide adequate care during the pregnancy, during labor and delivery and immediately after the delivery of the infant.

Failing to do so can result in the doctors and nurses being held responsible.
