Causes of Brain Injuries
Brain injuries are connected to medical malpractice either from a birth injury or from one later in life, often during surgery. Brain injuries from birth can result from a lack of oxygen to a newborn's brain during pregnancy or delivery.
Oxygen deprivation can result from the following:
- Maternal infection during pregnancy
- Compression of umbilical cord during delivery
- Placental abruption or uterine rupture before birth
- Maternal high blood pressure during pregnancy
- Breeched vaginal position of the baby
- Improper administration or dosage of epidural or labor inducing drugs during delivery
- Failure to timely perform C-section
- Fetal macrosomia unable to navigate birth canal
Other brain injuries can result from errors made during surgery, improper medication, or delays in the diagnosis of any of numerous brain maladies.
