Birth Injury Attorney

During the birth process, a baby or mother may suffer a physical injury that is caused by negligence on the part of the medical professionals attending to them. If you believe that your doctor acted irresponsibly and caused injury to your or your child, then you deserve compensation for your losses.

Common Birth Injuries to Children

Doctors and medical professionals that carefully monitor a pregnancy should be able to foresee preventable complications. By failing to exercise proper caution or even making a medical error, one of the following injuries may occur to the child:

  • Brachial Plexus Injury
  • Bruising
  • Cephalohematoma
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Fractures
  • Paralysis
  • Shoulder Dystocia

Many of these injuries can have a permanent effect on a baby, incurring medical bills, as well as emotional and physical suffering for the rest of the child’s life.

Common Birth Injuries to Mothers

The mother may also experience injury during birth, such as:

  • Damage to the spinal cord
  • Episiotomy
  • Infections
  • Preeclampsia
  • Placenta Acretia or Previa
  • Ruptured Uterus
  • Sepsis
  • Vaginal Tearing
