Signs Your Child Suffered a Brain Injury at Birth

A medical provider is entrusted with the duty to always act responsibly and meet the highest standards of medical care, especially when working with a pregnant mother or a newborn. Failing to do so could result in the infant suffering a stroke, cerebral palsy, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), or a number of other brain injuries. To make matters worse, it is not always obvious that a newborn has suffered a brain injury. Parents need to pay close attention to their children for warning signs that may begin showing days, weeks, or months later.

You may have reason to suspect your child was born with a brain injury if:

  • Your child was kept in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for an extended period of time.
  • Your child’s head or face has abnormal or unexplained bruising.
  • Prenatal examinations reveal your child has a swollen head.
  • Development of motor skills, like crawling or grasping, is delayed or weakened.
  • Your child’s vocalizations sound strained or slurred.

If you have reason to believe your child may be suffering from a brain injury, please schedule an appointment with a trusted pediatrician. After making necessary medical appointments and precautions, you should talk to our San Antonio birth injury lawyers about what to do next.
