Few things in life are more tragic than learning that your baby was born with catastrophic injuries. Most often, the injuries are the fault of the obstetrician or midwife or hospital personnel who either directly caused the injury or should have known about the condition before birth.

Do You Suspect Malpractice?

Did A Doctor Harm Your Infant Or Fail To Foresee Complications?
There are two main categories of birth injuries. The first involves children who are harmed through the negligence of medical professionals in prenatal care, during childbirth or in the neonatal care unit:
- Cerebral palsy from oxygen deprivation during delivery
- Erb's palsy as a result of excessive force or improper delivery technique
- Untreated jaundice or lung ailments after birth
- Failure to perform a timely cesarean section
The second type of birth injury is just as tragic. Often babies are hurt before they are born or show evidence of birth defects or conditions that might necessitate special birth procedures. It is the responsibility of the hospital, obstetrician or other medical professional to discover these problems and resolve them before birth.
The child may survive, but have to cope with lifelong disabilities, or the child may be destined for a short life or endless health complications. Birth injuries create financial as well as emotional hardships for a family, especially when a child needs round-the-clock care. We pursue fair damages that account for losses, suffering and future needs.
