Residents of New Haven, Connecticut, will agree that birth injuries may be among the saddest things that can happen to parents. Most birth injuries are caused due to negligence of healthcare staff and they can happen during labor and delivery of a child. Several factors, including oxygen deprivation to a baby’s brain, wrong medication and untrained healthcare staff, may contribute to a birth injury.
Severe birth injury may affect a child for the child’s whole life with a lifetime disability that most likely will need medical care. In cases of cerebral palsy which is caused by widespread brain damage, a child may face difficulties in discharging the simplest day-to-day activities. A severe form of cerebral palsy restricts a child’s ability to walk and speak incoherently.
