What Kind of Malpractice Causes Birth Injuries in New Jersey?
New Jersey Attorney Roy Konray answers the question, “What kind of medical malpractice causes birth injuries?” The truth is that birth injury cases can be difficult because it is not always easy to connect the injury to the negligent physician who caused the injury. A birth injury is an injury that occurs during labor or delivery. The two most common types of birth injuries in NJ are cerebral palsy (caused by oxygen deprivation in the hours or minutes leading up to delivery) and shoulder dystocia (due to the negligent way in which the baby was extracted during delivery).
