Birth-Related Infections

Our Lawyers Deliver Results

Infections sustained by babies before, during or shortly after being born are a common cause of birth injuries. Some of the most common (and potentially dangerous) birth-related infections include:

  • Candidiasis
  • Cytomegalovirus (CMV)
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C
  • Herpes
  • HIV
  • Listeriosis
  • Meningitis
  • Parvovirus B19
  • Rubella
  • Sepsis
  • Toxoplasmosis
  • Zika virus

Health Risks

Because of the health risks posed by such infections, doctors should take appropriate action as soon as they notice that the mother or the baby has one of these infections. That's why responsible physicians frequently prescribe antibiotics or other medications to treat such potentially harmful infections. Otherwise, children can be born with serious, permanent birth injuries, including:

  • Brain injuries
  • Cognitive problems
  • Microcephaly
  • Physical disabilities
  • Paralysis
  • Vision impairment

Symptoms

Children can develop serious birth injuries due to infections. That's why doctors take immediate action the second they notice something wrong. Common symptoms of a neonatal infection to a newborn baby include:

  • Excessive tiredness
  • Vomiting
  • Poor feeding
  • Fever
  • Rashes
  • Hearing loss
  • Decreased movement

Your Rights

If your child has health problems caused by an infection, you may be eligible for financial compensation for your child's care and services. That's because in many causes, birth injuries occur due to the reckless or negligent behavior of the child's doctor or other health care professionals.
