Kankakee Cephalohematoma Attorneys
During the birthing process, the medical team assisting in the delivery is responsible for two lives. Both mother and newborn are incredibly susceptible to any external threats, and it is the responsibility of the medical professionals monitoring the delivery to ensure that they are not at risk for infection or illness. Any negligence or failure to assist properly during the delivery can lead to birth injuries that, under a more responsible professional’s care, may have been avoided. One of the more common injuries that babies suffer during the birthing process is a cephalohematoma.
Seeing your newborn injured can be an emotionally and psychologically devastating experience. If your child was hurt by a careless medical professional, contact the Kankakee cephalohematoma attorneys of Spiros Law, P.C., at (815) 929-9292 to discuss your options for legal action against the responsible party.
Dangers of Cephalohematoma
Cephalohematoma is a type of birth injury that is sustained by a blunt trauma to the skull of the newborn, resulting in significant bruising. The pooling of blood on the scalp of a baby can be dangerous for the child’s health after delivery, and may be connected to complications including:
- Fractures to the skull
- Brain damage
- Infection of the injury site
Treatment for these injuries and their side effects can be financially and emotionally draining. When they are caused by the careless behavior of a medical professional, you should not be forced to pay for the associated costs on your own. A Kankakee cephalohematoma attorney can help you hold the responsible medical professional accountable for his or her inexcusable mistakes.
