Birth Brain Injury Claims
Going into labour is a stressful enough consideration for any mum-to-be. While most deliveries are wont to go without a hitch, there are rare circumstances where a difficult labour necessitates medical or surgical intervention. Such occurrences are usually in the interests of mother or child, sometimes both if high heart rate or raised blood pressure give cause for concern.

Birth Brain Injury Claims Due To Poor Obstetric Care
Poor obstetric care is the single most common motivator for birth brain injury claims. Contributing factors range from mis-diagnosis of birth defects prior to delivery, or failure to spot them; oxygen deprivation arising from a forceps delivery complication and in rare cases, negligent amniocentesis procedures. Such oversights can range considerably in their eventual effect. Lack of oxygen/ blood flow to the brain at birth leads to conditions known as hypoxia and ischemia – both of which have been identified as the root cause of many debilitating conditions, including cerebral palsy. As a rule, ‘birth brain trauma’ is applicable to any injury sustained as a result of questionable medical or ante-natal care.
