Birth injuries are often tragic and may result in life-long injury. In some cases, they occur due to negligent medical care or a mistake made by a doctor, nurse, or other health care provider attending a baby’s birth. Determining if your child’s injury was the result of negligence and not simply the risks of birth require experience in recognizing if the injury included such things as excessive use of a vacuum extractor, improper use of delivery forceps, delays in nonproductive births; C-sections, misdiagnosis of trauma or disease, and complications arising from a vaginal birth after cesarean. In the event that negligence is a factor, LG’s birth injuries attorneys can file suit on your behalf and will expertly present proof of negligence in a court of law. Considering filing an action against your doctor requires great thought and assurance that liability exists due to his/her negligence. Carelessness or negligence error is not always the cause of a birth injury or condition, some birth injuries are avoidable with proper anticipation and recognition of certain risk factors, such as the baby’s position and size. Miscalculations made during the delivery process can lead to many serious complications and injuries, which may in turn cause specific disorders, lifelong problems, and even death. Conditions that may result from birth injuries include:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Brachial Plexus Injury
- Shoulder Dystocia
- Fractures & Broken Bones
- Facial Cuts and/or Bruises
