Louisville Cephalohematoma Lawyers

Cephalohematoma refers to a swelling in the head, particularly when bleeding occurs and collects right underneath the scalp area. It can be caused by a number of circumstances, but is most often seen in births that involved the use of forceps or first-time births for new mothers. Unfortunately, many cases of cephalohematoma are the result of a doctor’s negligence or recklessness and could have been prevented.

Cephalohematoma often occurs in births when doctors are not careful when delivering a baby, and this condition can affect a baby’s comfort and overall health. Fortunately for parents, sometimes a negligent doctor can be held accountable for negligence through a lawsuit. If your baby has suffered from cephalohematoma during birth, learn more about your financial and legal options by contacting the Louisville cephalohematoma lawyers of the Sampson Law Firm today at 502-584-5050.

Results of Cephalohematoma

Cephalohematoma can sometimes heal on its own over time, but in many cases, it can cause a newborn baby:

  • Pain
  • Discomfort
  • Swelling
  • Cranial fracture
  • Infection
  • Jaundice

These consequences of cephalohematoma can be troublesome, not only physically for the baby, but also financially and emotionally for the baby’s parents. Treatment often is quite expensive, and parents may suffer emotional strain from worry or anxiety. But you should not have to face a birth injury like cephalohematoma on your own when it was the fault of a negligent medical professional.
