Birth Injuries

The day that your child is born should be one of the happiest moments of your life. However, not all births go as planned and serious medical complications may arise. These complications put your baby’s health at risk. When a doctor or medical professional does not handle the situation properly, your infant may suffer injuries or illnesses that can leave your child permanently injured or disabled. In the worst cases, improperly handled childbirth complications may result in death.

Birth Injuries

If your child has suffered a birth injury because your physician did not react to a dangerous situation in the proper manner, then you have a legal right to pursue damages. Many people fail to realize the tremendous costs associated with lifelong care and therapy which is often necessary for children that suffer birth injuries.

As the parent of an injured infant, it is up to you to take action. Our personal injury attorneys are available to assist you through the process of recovering damages on behalf of your child. It is necessary for parents to act quickly and take aggressive legal action against the negligent doctors who caused your child’s injury. Your actions may help prevent similar tragedies from occurring in the future.

There are a number of causes of tragic birth injuries, many of which are related to medical negligence on behalf of the acting physician. When a doctor fails to provide reasonable care for the mother and child during labor and delivery, they may be legally responsible for any injuries or disabilities that occur.

Physicians may fail to account for:

Abnormally large fetal head
Infants with abnormally high birth weights
Infants with abnormally low birth weights
The size and shape of the mother’s pelvis
Prolonged labor
Unusual birth position
Premature birth
Delivery complications
If your child has sustained a birth injury due to medical negligence at the time of birth, then you are able to hold your doctor or healthcare provider accountable in a court of law.
