When the negligence of a medical professional leads to a birth injury, our attorneys help you get the compensation you deserve.

Birth injuries can happen before, during, or shortly after a child is born. They are more likely to occur when certain factors come into play, such as:

  • A failure to identify, monitor, or act on fetal distress
  • A failure to plan for an emergency C-section
  • The misuse of cervical ripening or induction agents, such as Cytotec (misoprostol) or Pitocin (oxytocin)
  • The use of excessive force during a delivery
  • The misuse of instruments during a delivery
  • Lack of blood or oxygen to the brain
  • Exposure to bacteria
  • Respiratory distress
  • Placenta previa

Some of the most common types of birth injuries are:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Brachial plexus injuries
  • Bone fractures
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Brain damage
  • Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)
  • Facial paralysis
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Nerve injuries
  • Oxygen deprivation
  • Disfigurement
  • Meningitis
  • Cephalohematoma
  • Intracranial hemorrhages
  • Caput Succedaneum
  • Horner’s syndrome

No matter the birth injury, our attorneys fight for your right to compensation. Our lawyers will also work with you and trusted doctors to diagnose your child’s condition and get appropriate care.
