The birth of a child should be among the most joyous times in a parent’s life. 

But despite its status as an advanced nation, the United States lags behind many other developed countries when it comes to preventing serious and fatal birth injuries to mother and child. In fact, the U.S. has the highest maternal death rate of any industrialized country, making it the most dangerous developed country in the world for mother’s giving birth, according to a USA Today investigation.  

When it comes to infant mortality, the U.S. ranks 33 out of 36 developed nations, with a birth risk that is 71 percent higher than average, according to a report by the Kaiser Family Foundation.  

Birth injuries are a type of medical malpractice claim, which allege injury caused by a medical professional as a result of neglect, providing the wrong treatment, providing inadequate treatment, failure to diagnose, or other common cause of preventable medical injury. These claims seek to ensure all of the necessary resources are available for the current and future treatment needs of mother and child, and/or to correct instances of negligence in an effort to prevent other families from suffering similar negligence in the future.  

Families dealing with a birth injury are often overwhelmed. But the cost of medical care and treatment can be astronomical as hospitals continue to bill for treatment of conditions caused by medical error. Reaching out to an experienced birth injury lawyer in

Denver is the best thing you can do to protect your rights as you focus on family and recovery.  

Birth Injuries - Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice claims focus on whether a treatment provider deviated from the standard of care that would have been expected of another professional under the same circumstances.  

Medical errors are the leading cause of accidental death in the United States, accounting for between 250,000 and 440,000 preventable deaths each year. By some estimates, about 1 in 4 medical malpractice claims involve obstetrics or gynecology, making birth injuries among the most common types of medical malpractice claims in the United States.

Common types of birth injuries include:

  • Fractures and Broken Bones: These are the most common birth injuries and are most likely to occur in breech deliveries or for large babies. Treatment can be complex for newborn infants.   
  • Injuries to mother: Obstetric emergencies, like severe bleeding and amniotic fluid embolism, as well as high blood pressure and infection, are among the biggest threats to mothers in the week after delivery.  
  • Force Injuries: Can result in broken bones or nerve damage.  
  • Cerebral Palsy: This permanent condition results from infant brain damage before or during childbirth.  
  • Erb’s Palsy: This brachial plexus injury is caused by nerve damage to the shoulder, arm or hand during delivery.  
  • Preeclampsia/Eclampsia: Can result in high blood pressure, seizures, and death of mother of child.  
  • C-section injuries: The U.S. has the highest rate of c-section births in the developed world. More than 20 percent of all births are by cesarean section in the United States. These births are much more costly and come with substantial health risks.
