Birth Injury Law

Birth Injury Issues:

Birth Injury

Birth injuries result from a medical complication during labor or birth. For example, if a mother's pelvis is too narrow and the delivery of the baby is lengthy, it might cause physical damage or temporary loss of oxygen to the baby, which results in brain damage. A birth injury may also occur when a physician does not act quickly to a patient's needs during labor or when there was a lack of care during the pregnancy or birthing process.

Birth Injury Legal Issues:

Birth injuries may result in devastating effects on the mother and/or child. A child can have lifelong paralysis, brain damage, and could even die if inadequate medical attention was given to the patient. Other birth injuries may include:

  • Spinal cord damage
  • Bone fractures
  • Bruising
  • Skin irritation and infections
  • Paralysis
  • Internal Bleeding
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Brachial Plexus

What an Injury Lawyer can do for you:

If you or someone you know has experienced negligence on the part of a medical professional that caused a birth injury, a personal injury lawyer can help protect your legal rights. A personal injury lawyer can also help you receive the proper compensation for the birth injury, to cover the child's long term disabilities, special education and intensive therapy.
