Texas Birth Injury Lawsuits, Texas Small Child Death Lawsuits, Texas Small Child Injury Lawsuits and Texas Infant Death Lawsuits Have Become Increasingly Difficult Under Texas Law

Texas birth injury lawsuits, Texas small child injury lawsuits, Texas small child death lawsuits, and Texas infant death lawsuits are some of the most difficult types of Texas lawsuits to handle because of economic restraints and emotional issues.  The economic restraints that have been placed on these cases by the Texas Supreme Court and Texas Legislature have substantially increased the cost of filing and litigating these cases as well as have substantially reduced the compensation that families can receive for the death, pain and suffering, and mental anguish of their child.  

These cases also have a difficult emotional aspect that goes along with them.  Parents and families who should be celebrating the birth of a new child, are often caught off guard when their child dies during or shortly after birth or is born with or suffers severe disabilities.  It is often all the parents can do to grieve their loss or take care of their new child.  Many don't realize that someone may be responsible for their child's death, birth injury or birth defect.  They also often do not have the time or energy to file a claim or seek justice for the negligence bringing light to the mistakes that crippled or killed their child.  However, it is often important for these families to act to prevent similar mistakes from killing or crippling other children.

Texas Cerebral Palsy Birth Injury Lawsuits

"Cerebral" refers to the brain and "palsy" to muscle weakness/poor control. Cerebral palsy itself is not progressive, but is a developmental problem that can occur during fetal development, the birthing process, or infancy.  Once a child has cerebral palsy, the child will not get worse over time, however, conditions such as muscle spasticity can develop which may get better or worse over time. Although cerebral palsy is not "curable", training and therapy treatments can help improve function.  For more information on Cerebral Palsy Birth Injury Lawsuits go to our Texas Cerebral Palsy Birth Injury Lawsuit Information Page.

Texas Brachial Plexus Birth Injury Lawsuits

Brachial Plexus Injuries occur when the brachial plexus, a network of nerves between the neck and shoulder, is damaged. Because the brachial plexus conducts nerve signals from the spinal cord to the arm and hand, when it is damaged impairment of the arm and hand can occur causing a limp arm. The brachial plexus is a network of nerves formed by fibers located between the shoulder and the neck. Most brachial plexus injuries happen during birth when excessive lateral traction is applied to the fetal neck region during a vaginal birth and a traumatic stretching of the brachial plexus occurs causing damages to the nerves.  Brachial plexus injuries are more common in infants that are larger than average in size as they have more trouble moving through the birth canal.  For more information on Brachial Plexus Birth Injury Lawsuits including Erb's Palsy Birth Injury Lawsuits, please go to our Texas Erb's Palsy and Brachial Plexus Birth Injury Lawsuit Page.

Texas Infant Brain Injury Lawsuits and Causes of Hypoxia During Birth (Infant Death and Birth Injury Hypoxia Brain Damage Lawsuits)

Several reasons can cause an unborn child to suffer hypoxia resulting in a brain injury  during the birthing process including a difficult labor, unreasonable delay in performing a C-section, delay in delivering an extremely large baby, gestational diabetes in the mother, failure to properly and timely resuscitate the baby, maternal or fetal bleeding complications, excessive administration of Pitocin, and placenta previa. It is important during any birth to have medical professionals that are able to protect the safety of the mother and child by not allowing any of these factors to become a problem. If problems arise and these difficulties occur during the birth of your child and the child sustains a brain injury, you may want to contact a Birth Injury Lawyer with the skill and dedication to help you get the compensation.

Texas Medication Birth Defect Lawsuits, Federal MDL Defective Medication Birth Defect Lawsuits, and International Defective Birth Defect Lawsuits

A growing body of evidence indicates that several drugs and medications, if used during pregnancy, may cause serious birth defects.  These drugs include Topamax, Depakote, and several selective serotonin-reuptake inhibitor SSRI antidepressants.  Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are commonly used as antidepressants. Drugs included in the SSRI class are Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Symbyax, Celexa, Cymbalta, Effexor and Lexapro.

Several other medications, products, and drugs may also cause birth defects.  Some of these medication and products have ample warnings that warn pregnant women to avoid taking these products while they are pregnant, however, some manufacturers have hidden the real dangers of their product in order to sell more of their product and value profits over healthy babies.  For these manufacturers, they may have short term profits, but over the long term they will suffer for the long term birth defects that they have caused.
