GET QUALIFIED LEGAL ADVICE ON DIFFICULT INJURY MATTERS

While childbirth is widely considered to have become safer and less problematic due to medical and technological advances, serious injury or death can still happen during the birth of a child. Such a tragedy is shocking and devastating under any circumstance, but some injuries are preventable.

inner-content-img3If you have experienced a birth injury that you believe may be related to medical malpractice, contact us. As attorneys with decades of experience in the field, we can help you assess whether a lawsuit is appropriate in your case. If it is, we have the legal and medical knowledge, the resources and the real-world experience needed to get results through settlement or trial. Our knowledge of birth injury matters includes:

  • Infection
  • Cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy or brachial palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Head trauma, facial injury, nerve injury or hematoma
  • Bone injuries and fractures, including those in the clavicle or collar bone
  • Failure to treat gestational diabetes
  • Failures related to ultrasound and imaging
  • Pitocin administration
  • Failure to supervise fetal monitors
  • Failure to intubate properly

Appropriate medical care during the birthing process can eliminate many birth traumas that would otherwise occur naturally with a large baby, shoulder dystocia, breech presentation or other abnormal presentations.

For example, prenatal monitoring of the infant’s vitals, and the avoidance of forceps or vacuum extraction, and emergency cesarean section are some standard medical interventions that have reduced the number of birth injuries.
