This condition, which is commonly misdiagnosed as a cephalohematoma, is readily identifiable by x-ray and can be repaired with surgery. If a doctor or hospital fails to identify the condition, and it goes untreated, a baby may suffer from seizures, mental retardation and hydrocephalus.
The trial lawyers at Bottar Law, PLLC, have decades of experience investigating, prosecuting and trying to verdict medical malpractice and birth injury cases involving skull fractures. If your baby sustained a skull fracture during birth, you and your family may be entitled to compensation for lifelong health care, medical expenses, medical bills, loss of income, and pain and suffering.
