Hypoxia: A serious birth injury

Medical malpractice leads to birth injuries far too often in New Mexico. In many cases, a birth injury can be caused by non-treatment-related factors, such as an accident, poor diet, drug use, alcohol use, smoking or just by random chance. However, the very serious birth complication known as hypoxia can be caused by either medical malpractice or non-doctor-related factors. If your baby suffered a birth injury due to hypoxia, you may want to determine if your doctor and/or the medical staff were at fault. 

Does cerebral palsy result from hospital mistakes?

A birth injury can result from a variety of causal factors, but the vast majority of New Mexico birth injury cases are related to cerebral palsy or Erbs palsy (Erbs palsy is also known as brachial palsy). Both of these medical conditions can be caused by hospital mistakes or other medical malpractice during child delivery. Cerebral palsy can also occur before the delivery takes place and even after the delivery. In this article, the definitions and causes of cerebral palsy will be discussed.

4-year-old awarded $32.8M for health care mistakes

A 4-year-old in another state was recently awarded nearly $33 million from a panel of jurors. According to the toddler's lawyer, the young girl suffered a birth injury as a result of health care mistakes. Although this case was tried in another state, babies in New Mexico are also at risk of suffering birth injuries due to the negligence or other wrongdoing of hospital staff.
