Spinal Cord Birth Injury Resulting in Paralyzation
Complications are often encountered during a delivery. How a doctor, hospital and medical staff react to these complications can impact the long-term health of the child. In rare occurrences, a medical malpractice during birth may cause a spinal cord trauma for the child, resulting in life-long paralysis and other injuries.
If the appropriate standard of medical care is not provided, the baby could suffer paralyzation from a severe spinal cord injury. If the problems could have been prevented, the child and family may be entitled to financial compensation. Request a free consultation and claim evaluation.

When the baby becomes stuck in the birth canal, the doctor must use care to avoid excessive force or overstretching of the baby, which could impact the spinal cord.
Although this type of medical malpractice birth injury is rare, the results can be devastating. The child will often suffer paralysis without any ability to move certain parts of their body. The damage to the spinal cord is usually permanent, leaving the child with a lifelong disability.
