Skull Fractures During Birth Injury Attorneys
Skull fractures during delivery are rare but they can occur. They are often associated with the misuse of a vacuum extractor or forceps. Even if the skull fracture itself was not caused by medical negligence, the failure to detect and treat it may be. Prompt diagnosis is necessary because a skull fracture can lead to an intracranial hemorrhage (bleeding in the brain), which creates increased pressure. If the increased pressure is not alleviated, it can lead to brain damage or even death.
Some of the most common signs of a skull fracture include:
- Dented or deformed head
- Cranial lump
- Bruising around the eyes or ears
- Blood or other fluid leaking from the ears, nose or eyes
