Mother files birth injury lawsuit

Operation Unified Response

A birth injury lawsuit has been filed by a mother who claims that her child was left with permanent brain damage and other injuries as a result of medical negligence during the birthing process.

According to the lawsuit, the mother, a gestational diabetic woman pregnant with her third child, was admitted to the hospital approximately three weeks before her due date, with ruptured membranes.

According to medical records, the unborn child was significantly larger than average, which may increase the risk of complications during vaginal delivery and may put the child at risk of injury or other health problems.

During delivery, medical personnel performed shoulder dystocia resolution maneuvers and applied a vacuum extractor. According to medical records, the child suffered cardiac arrest during the labor and delivery process. Ultimately, the child suffered acute kidney failure, respiratory failure, subgaleal hemorrhage resulting in permanent brain damage, Horner’s Syndrome and brachial plexus palsy.

Brachial plexus injuries occur when there is stretching, ripping or compressing of the nerves that send signals from the spine to the shoulder, arm and hand. This type of birth injury may occur during a difficult delivery process.

The lawsuit claims that negligence on the part of medical personnel contributed to the injuries suffered by the child.
