Facial Paralysis Attorney | Birth Injury Lawsuit for Nerve Damage

Birth Injury Law FirmDeliveries can be a dangerous process. That is why most woman choose to give birth to their child in the safety of a hospital with  medical doctors on hand to protect the life and health of the unborn child and the mother. However in some instances actions of practicing obstetricians who have been given the duty to protect the health of the unborn result in serious birth injuries. One of the most common birth injuries caused by the medical malpractice of a practicing physician during delivery is facial paralysis also referred to as bell’s palsy. Common signs and symptoms associated with facial nerve damage at birth include uncontrolled drooling, incomplete closure of the eye, facial asymmetry, and lack of motion in the face.

Negligent use of Forceps During Delivery:  One of the leading factors contributing to facial paralysis at birth is the wrongful use of forceps during the delivery process.  There are strict guidelines that have been put in place delineating instances where forceps should or should not be used during vaginal delivery.
