Did Negligence Contribute To Your Birth Injury?

Some birth injuries are due to complications and cannot be avoided, despite the best efforts of medical professionals. Some birth injuries, however, are the direct result of negligence on the part of obstetricians, nurses and other medical staff.

Birth injuries can be caused by negligence before, after and during labor. Medical negligence can result in birth injuries such as:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb's palsy
  • Brachial plexus injuries
  • Hypoxic brain injuries (lack of oxygen to the brain)
  • Infections
  • Fractures
  • Forceps injuries

The mother can also suffer injuries during pregnancy, birth and postpartum care. Our lawyers represent clients whose babies have suffered birth injuries as well as mothers who have suffered sphincter injuries, gestational diabetes, postpartum infections and other conditions caused by negligent medical care.
