Bone Fractures

Assembling a determination if your infant has a fractured bone can be difficult at times. Infant’s bones are so pliable that they occasionally break. Your newborn may have been a victim of birth trauma and suffered from bone fractures due to a doctor or nurse mishandling your fragile baby. It is imperative to file a claim if your infant is suffering in such an event and if your infant has suffered a bone fracture due to a medical professional’s lack of care.

Types of bone fractures may include:


  • Bone breaks in two pieces
  • Bone cracks but does not separate
  • Bone cracks into two or more pieces
  • One part of the bone is within another bone

When a bone fracture occurs during the birthing process, there are usually clear cut signs that make it obvious that the infant suffered a bone fracture while being born or shortly after the process. However, less severe bone fractures may take a short time to notice instead of noticing them immediately. Bruising, stiffness, and snapping sounds are all indications that your newborn may have experienced a mild sprain or fracture. More severe bone fractures will be evident right away. A spiral bone fracture, for example, is one of the more severe bone fractures that occur during a traumatic birth.

In most cases, a fractured bone during birth is caused by some sort of trauma to the bone itself if the caregiver does not perform the essential procedures throughout the process of birth. For example, rushing the process, pulling the baby out the wrong way, or delivering a very large baby instead of performing a Cesarean can all result in bone fractures. Even directly birth, bone fractures can occur if any medical staff members treat the baby carelessly by dropping him or her or mishandling the infant some other way. Birth trauma may occur as a result of internal bleeding within the mother, or even disease among other types of causes.
