Medical Negligence During A Birth
Helping You Seek Justice And Compensation
Take Legal Action When You, Your Child Or Your Partner Has Suffered Harm
Some birth injuries occur due to split-second decisions made by medical practitioners during childbirth. Others are the result of treatment provided weeks or months in advance. In either case, you have a right to hold the negligent party accountable.
Some of the most common birth injuries include:
- A lack of oxygen in the fragile first moments of life
- Cerebral palsy
- Shoulder injury to the child
- Erb’s palsy, or paralysis to the arm
- Failure to perform a C-section when necessary, or the failure to perform a timely C-section
The mother can also sustain injuries during birth, such as hemorrhaging that may require a hysterectomy. In some cases, expectant parents are also turned away from the hospital due to a failure to admit and monitor a pregnant woman in need of medical attention.
