Birth injuries are devastating physically and emotionally for the entire family. An occasion such as the birth of a child is filled with hope and promise. A birth injury due to the negligence or carelessness of a medical professional is an all too common occurrence. The most common birth injuries may result in permanent injuries such as cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, retarded neurological development, and an impairment of motor skills.
Such injuries occur as a result of mistakes or complications during pregnancy or labor and delivery and are often the result of the failure of doctors and nurses to recognize the signs and symptoms of distress. Failure to act in a timely fashion or in a proper fashion results in such birth injuries as brachial palsy, fractured bones, and facial paralysis.
Neurological injuries are also common and may result from oxygen deprivation, blood loss, or damage to the umbilical cord. A child born with brain injuries may suffer from seizures, cerebral palsy, and severe mental and cognitive impairment.
As experienced birth injury lawyers, we’ve witnessed the devastation to children and their families caused by such negligence. We have an expert team of medical professionals, trial attorneys, and staff to help you if you’ve suffered such a devastating loss. When we meet with you and evaluate your case we’ll thoroughly review the medical records and determine whether your child’s injuries were due to a failure to anticipate birth complications, a failure to recognize fetal distress, an unacceptable delay in ordering a cesarean section, the misuse of forceps or vacuum extraction, or the improper administration of drugs during delivery such as Pitocin.
We’ll be at your side throughout this difficult process and keep you informed. If medical negligence or medical malpractice is found, we will aggressively pursue justice for you. Our firm is committed to child safety and healthy babies.
