Cephalohematoma in Medical Malpractice Cases

Cephalohematoma often requires no treatment, but in the case of newborns, can be a result of birth injury which may require more attention, lead to further complications, or be grounds for a medical malpractice case. 

The most common cause of cephalohematoma is trauma to the head of a baby during delivery. This trauma may occur because of the negligence of an attending doctor or medical staff member. If so, you may have grounds to file a medical malpractice lawsuit and recover damages.
