Failure to do so can lead to an underdeveloped brain, oxygen deprivation, or body overheating, which may cause some of the most common types of birth injuries.
When the child is not cared for properly during development, irreparable brain damage may occur due to:
Any failure to diagnose a brain injury or unreasonable delays in treatment can be grounds for legal action. The actions taken by doctors during labor and delivery can have a profound impact on the child's future, and they can and should be held accountable for mistakes that have negatively affected your family.
