Head and Brain Trauma from Giving Birth in South Dakota

It is a completely devastating situation: You spent the past nine months waiting for your baby to arrive, anticipating the first time you could hold your precious little one. But, the delivery turned out to be long and difficult, which put your unborn baby in fetal distress. Unfortunately, a baby in fetal distress for a long period of time can have significant injuries.

In a normal delivery, the baby’s head is the first part of the body which tries to enter the world. Quite often, a baby’s head experiences swelling, bruising, or even minor deformation which is not considered serious. However, the Sioux Falls personal injury lawyers at Zimmer, Duncan & Cole, LLP, have seen situations in South Dakota where a baby’s injuries were severe due to prolonged labor.

Serious Brain and Head Injuries Which May Result from a Difficult Labor Include:

  • Seizure disorders
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Subdural hematoma, when blood gathers over the surface of the brain, usually from torn or bleeding veins


While many head and brain injuries resolve themselves over a period of time, those indicated above are usually long-term problems. For more information, read our library article “How Babies in South Dakota Incur Brain Injuries.”

Errors made by medical professionals during the birthing process can lead to head and brain injuries in babies. Our South Dakota personal injury attorneys at Zimmer, Duncan & Cole, LLP, don’t want you to be scared if an issue arose during your labor. Call our Sioux Falls or Parker office at (888) 733-2992 to discuss your case and review medical records with a compassionate attorney. We urge you to seek our assistance if your little one was injured.
