Malpractice Birth Injuries and Neonatal Brain Bleeds
A brain hemorrhage is bleeding that occurs inside the skull (intracranial), in a brain ventricle (intraventricular), or between the brain and its lining (subarachnoid).
According to Current Medicinal Chemistry, around 3.5 of every 1,000 live births involves a neonatal brain hemorrhage, making this a common neurological complication for babies. While there are many risk factors for neonatal brain bleeding, one of the biggest is premature delivery, usually more than ten weeks early. In other cases, a newborn brain hemorrhage may occur because of:
- Incorrect use of forceps
- Inappropriate use of a vacuum extractor device
- Conditions that cause a long, difficult labor or extended time in the birth canal
- A physical injury to the baby’s head, such as dropping the newborn
How Medical Negligence Can Cause or Contribute to a Newborn Brain Hemorrhage
In addition to a negligent mistake that can cause any of the conditions listed above, the doctor or trained professional might also commit medical negligence when they fail to:
- Monitor a baby with risk factors for brain bleeding
- Run tests and diagnose a baby with symptoms
- Treat a baby with a brain hemorrhage with the appropriate action
At the Birth Injury Lawyers Group, our team can assess your child’s delivery and birth injury to determine if you have a case against the doctor or hospital. These evaluations are a part of our free consultations. Call (800) 222-9529 now to learn more.

Timing in Arizona Birth Injury Medical Malpractice Claims
In Arizona, medical malpractice victims generally have two years to begin a lawsuit under Arizona Revised Statutes 12-542. However, a different law, Arizona Revised Statutes § 12-502, extends the filing deadline when the victim of medical malpractice is a minor (under 18 years of age). When this occurs, the victim or their family may have until the victim’s 20th birthday to sue.
The Birth Injury Lawyers Group will ensure you adhere to the applicable timeline if we represent you in your case.
