There are many different causes including delayed caesarean sections, breached delivery, and fetal distress; many of which could have been avoided with appropriate medical care.

General errors can be made during the pregnancy and delivery process, including inadequate prescreening, pregnancy related hypertension, and misinterpretation of the bio-physical profile on a test.

Mistakes can also be made in the delivery, when the baby’s shoulder gets caught on the pelvic bone, which can lead to a number of different types of injuries, including damage to the brachial plexus, Erb’s palsy and brain damage. Cerebral palsy may develop due to delayed delivery and this is a group of disorders that permanently affects the baby’s muscle coordination or body movement.
