Motor Skill Deficiencies Caused by Birth Injury – Birth Injury Lawyers in Detroit & Southfield Michigan

Motor skill disorders result from brain injuries, damage to the nervous system, or other abnormalities. Often, it is a birth-related injury that causes a motor skill deficiency.

What Is a Motor Disorder?

Motor disorders manifest as unintended or uncontrollable body movements or contractions, such as:

  • Jerking
  • Twitches
  • Spasms
  • Balance problems

Motor Skill Deficiencies and Birth Injury

Complications before and during birth can result in different motor disorders. For example, a baby can suffer oxygen deprivation or be harmed if the labor and delivery team uses excessive force. Other causes include:

  • Misuse of forceps
  • Maternal infection
  • Abnormal fetal position
  • Umbilical cord complications
  • Brain bleeds

Many birth injuries are preventable. Doctors and nurses have a duty to properly care for the mother and baby from pregnancy through birth. When medical professionals are negligent and violate their duty of care, their actions or inaction can cause permanent damage or disability, or even death.

Legal Compensation for Birth Injuries

Children who survive a birth injury often face a lifetime of medical treatment and services, costly expenses that their families must bear. A medical malpractice suit can not only hold negligent doctors and hospital staff liable but can also recover compensation for economic hardship.

To win a birth-related medical malpractice case, the plaintiff (usually a parent suing on behalf of the child) must prove the defendant healthcare professionals violated their duty of care and that the child’s injuries are a direct result of that breach of duty.
