Attorney Johnnie Bond handles cases that deal with brain injuries associated with the negligent acts or oversight of medical professionals during the birth of a child. Brain injuries at birth can be the result of trauma the baby experienced during the delivery process. This trauma can include lack of oxygen or lack of blood flow to the brain resulting in dysfunction of the brain or by reduced glucose levels in the baby’s bloodstream. If left undetected due to poor oversight, these traumatic incidents could lead to other injuries. If your child has suffered as a result of these injuries caused by negligence or incompetence of medical staff, you need to speak with an attorney about your options.Injuries Associated with Birth Trauma

Our overall goal is to obtain the necessary compensation owed to victims of preventable tragedies.Signs and Symptoms of Brain Injuries Associated with Birth Trauma
Although infants cannot speak for themselves, oftentimes they display symptoms that will allow a parent to question whether brain damage possibly occurred during the birthing process. These symptoms, although not exclusive, might shed some light on the condition:
- Cerebral palsy
- Abnormal swelling or bleeding as seen on a CT scan, MRI, or ultrasound
- Extended admission in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)
- Unusual bruising
Other symptoms might appear as the child begins developing. These symptoms may be seen as delayed development. For instance, a child with a brain injury might have trouble crawling, walking, and developing proper motor skills.
