Birth Injuries

There is no greater joy than having a child.  It is one of life’s gifts.  And we all want the best for our children.  Recognizing that a child was injured at birth – and that injury may cause lifelong disability – is an incredibly difficult reality.

In many cases, the birth injury is caused by medical malpractice at birth.  This negligence on the part of the obstetrical team can come in a number of different forms.  Sometimes, it’s what they did wrong.  Sometimes, it’s what they failed to do or failed to do timely.

There is no cost to have us get medical records and determine if there was negligence.  At the least, you deserve answers.

We can help with the following birth injuries:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Erb’s Palsy
  • Brain Injury at Birth
  • Failure to Timely Perform C-section
  • Spastic Quadriplegia
  • Too Much Pitocin
  • Baby Skull Fractures
  • Brachial Plexus Injury
  • Child’s Death during childbirth
  • Poor APGAR
  • Encephalopothy

Sometimes, the injury is obvious.  Trauma during birth leading to broken bones or skull fractures can lead to long NICU stays and raise clear questions. Sometimes, however, the injury was hypoxia related – failure for the baby to receive oxygen.  This is not always immediately obvious.  Often, parents suspect an issue but do not pursue it just after birth, even when there is a NICU stay.  Parents naturally want to get their baby home and begin to live the life they’ve imagined with their child.  However, developmental delays often raise issues and questions.

If you are experiencing delays in your newborn or toddler, and you suspect a birth injury may have been the issue, call us.  There is no sense in not investigating it.  Unfortunately, negligence happens in our society.  That’s what insurance is for.  It takes money to secure a comfortable life for your child.  Don’t be afraid to see if you can secure this for your child.  Call us.
