Broken Bones During Delivery
Newborns are extremely vulnerable, but during delivery, their small bodies stand up to a lot of force. Sometimes, however, the pressure is too much and their bones break. There are instances when breaking a newborn’s bone, especially the collarbone, is done intentionally to help the birthing process. However, if your infant was born with broken bones, you deserve to have your questions answered.

Due to the fact that newborns are so delicate, there is some risk inherent in all childbirths, but substandard medical care is never acceptable. If your child suffered from a preventable injury during childbirth, it is important to hold the responsible parties accountable for your child’s suffering.
Especially in the case of a broken collarbone, or clavicle, an infant’s broken bone can heal quickly and without complications if treated promptly. Delay in detection of the break or in treatment could complicate the child’s recovery, and not all breaks are so easy to fix. A broken thighbone often takes longer to heal and could require complete immobilization of the newborn’s leg.Call our New York City Birth Injury Lawyers
