Oregon and Southwestern Washington Birth Injuries Attorneys

As the baby passes through the birth canal, the entire body is subject to stresses that can cause serious nerve damage, if not monitored appropriately and relieved in a timely manner. The obstetrics staff must constantly monitor vital signs indicating increased heart rate and other signs of fetal distress that can result in permanent nerve damage leading to birth injury conditions such as cerebral palsy or Erb's palsy.

If your baby suffered nerve damage during delivery in a hospital in Oregon or southwestern Washington, it could be a sign of negligence on the part of the medical staff assigned to ensure a safe delivery in your hospital. Call the Portland birth injury trial attorneys at Miller & Wagner, LLP, for a free consultation to evaluate your case.

Possible causes of damage to nerve bundles outside of the spinal column (peripheral nerve damage) resulting during delivery include:

  • Toxins: baby's exposure to toxic chemicals that effect nerve development in the fetus
  • Infections: If the baby develops an infection, it can affect the development of nerves, with a negative impact on motor skills.
  • Injuries: An injury to the baby during delivery, often from the improper use of forceps or vacuum extraction equipment can result in pinched and damaged nerve bundles.
