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
  • Compressed umbilical cord at the time of delivery
  • an abruption or rupture in the placenta or uterus before birth
  • High blood pressure in the mother over the duration of the pregnancy
  • The baby's position of feet ahead of the head
  • Incorrect dose or usage of epidural during delivery
  • Failure to perform a c-section when necessary
  • The large size of the baby in comparison to the size of the 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.
