There is perhaps nothing more tragic for a parent than seeing their child suffer a traumatic injury at birth.

Common Symptoms of Birth Injuries
This is a difficult question to answer because the nature of birth injuries can vary greatly from child to child. There are, however, a few symptoms that will appear immediately after a child is born. If you notice that your child has one of these symptoms it is important to get a second opinion from another doctor and then get legal representation.
High-pitched crying, grunting or overall fussiness not attributed to other issues
Low oxygen levels
Lowered heart rate
Sensitivity to light
Bruising, swelling, or contusions to the body or head
Drooping or head sagging
These are some of the more common signs of a birth injury that will need to be diagnosed by a physician. Birth injuries can range from mild to more severe injuries. Unfortunately, there are some signs that may not appear until much later after the child is born.
It is important to report any signs of birth injury as soon as you notice them so that you can begin your fight to get the compensation you deserve.
