Has your child suffered a birth injury?

Birth Injury Lawyers

The birth of a child should be one of the happiest times in a family’s life. Sadly, each year several of every 1000 births result in injury because of trauma during birth. Unexpected birth injuries can result from negligent medical care during the prenatal stage, labor or delivery.

 

 

Common types of birth injuries/defects include:

 

 

» Cerebral palsy
» Erb’s Palsy (Brachial Plexus Palsy)

» Fractures
» Bleeding in the brain
» Brain swelling
» Bruising and lacerations from forceps
» Facial nerve damage
» Injury to the brain cells due to lack of oxygen (Hypoxic-ischemic Encephalopathy HIE)
» Asphyxia
» Bone injury/fracture
» Cranial or spinal cord injury
» Facial paralysis
» Infant hematoma
» Injuries from vacuum birth
» Intra-abdominal injury
» Newborn jaundice
» Premature Preterm Rupture of Membranes (PPROM)
» Shoulder dystocia
» Spinal birth defects
» Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome
» Umbilical cord strangulation
