When it comes to birth related injuries, educating yourself is key to a successful case. Understanding both the medical and legal side of birth related injuries, will help you target your expectations. First and foremost, a birth related injury can be characterized as any injury to a newborn infant as a result from a mechanical force during the birth process. Birth related injuries differ from Birth defects, in that birth defects result from mutations within a child’s DNA and occur before the child leaves the womb. Immediate symptoms may include restlessness, excessive drooling, vomiting, lethargy, light sensitivity and seizures. Other symptoms may not be apparent right away, but may eventually show as Anemia, changes in vision, hearing loss, dizziness, hypertension, low heart rate, low oxygen levels in the blood and others. If your child experiences any of these symptoms, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. Though these symptoms may not be due to a birth related injury, if they are, it is important to document the details of all medical experiences and expenses.
