We take care of everything when it comes to birth injury cases


The birth of a child is a precious moment for parents and family members. During the delivery, parents put their trusts in healthcare providers such as ob-gyn and nurses to ensure safe delivery. These healthcare professionals are expected to exercise due caution to ensure the safety of the baby. However, not all deliveries go smoothly. There have been many cases of delivery errors that led to birth injuries such as cerebral palsy, Erb's palsy, shoulder dystorcia, facial paralysis, fractures and brain injuries. Some of these injuries heal over time while others leave permanent damage to the baby.

Our law firm has helped many parents who have dealt with birth injury cases. When we handle such cases, we exert time and effort to determine the extent of injuries sustained and what errors caused those injuries. Because of our limited medical knowledge, we work with third-party healthcare professionals to examine medical records and determine if an erroneous act led to birth injuries. For example, if the ob-gyn did not perform a timely caesarean section, we can use this in the medical malpractice claim to further solidify our assertion that an error led to the injury.

The choice of filing a medical malpractice claim depends on the parents. It is important for parents to understand that delivering a baby has inherent risks. Not all birth injuries result from doctor errors. Some were complications common in surgeries and other medical procedures.

Before parents proceed with a legal action, it is important for them to determine if an error caused the injury. If that is the case, they may file a legal action and make responsible parties accountable. To learn more about birth injury, they should visit our website. Parents may also wish to consult one of our knowledgeable legal professionals for sound advice.
