New Hampshire Neurological Injury Attorneys

How Neurological Birth Injuries Occur

Neurological birth injuries are those that affect the brain function of an infant. A child who suffers a neurological injury experiences brain damage—mild, moderate, or severe—as a result of some form of trauma. Often, these injuries occur during labor or delivery as a result of medical malpractice or negligence. One of the most common causes of neurological birth injuries is oxygen deprivation. This can occur when a doctor or other medical practitioner fails to order an emergency C-section after an infant shows signs of fetal distress. Prolonged labor is just one relatively common cause of neurological injury. Many other situations can arise that can lead to severe, life-altering injury for your child.

To speak with one of our New Hampshire neurological birth injury lawyers, call Abramson, Brown & Dugan at (603) 323-4622 and schedule a complimentary consultation today.

Common Types of Neurological Birth Injuries

There are many different types of injuries and conditions that fall under the umbrella of neurological injury. The aftereffects of an injury will vary, depending on the type, extent, and severity of the damage. However, nearly all neurological injuries will require some form of ongoing medical care.

Some of the most common forms of neurological injuries include:

Neurological injuries can also lead to seizures, hemorrhaging, and, in severe cases, death.

Effects of Neurological Injuries

Because these types of injuries can be so varied, the aftereffects can also differ greatly from one case to the next. If your child develops cerebral palsy as a result of a neurological injury, he or she may experience poor muscle tone, reduced motor skills, “floppiness” or stiffness of the body, intellectual disabilities, and spastic movements. If he or she suffers birth asphyxia, your child may have weak or “floppy” limbs, poor muscle tone, seizing at birth or right after delivery, and developmental delays.

Though it is impossible to pinpoint the exact long-term effects of your child’s neurological birth injury without individualized testing, most children who suffer such injuries require extensive, life-long medical care. This can include anything from pain management and medication to multiple surgeries and ongoing physical and occupational therapy.

Speak with an Attorney about Your Legal Options
