• What causes a birth injury?

Birth is inherently risky, and sometimes even the best medical care cannot prevent injury. Factors that tend to increase the likelihood of injury are:

  • Birth complications.
  • Cesarean deliveries.
  • Infections during pregnancy.
  • Jaundice.
  • Large size.
  • Low birthweight.
  • Multiple births.
  • Premature birth.
  • Use of fertility treatment before pregnancy.

While some birth injuries are unavoidable, others are caused by negligent or inadequate medical care. Determining whether a healthcare provider’s negligence contributed to a birth injury can be complicated, particularly when multiple risk factors are also at play. The counsel of an experienced Michigan birth injury lawyer can help families understand their options and how to pursue them.
