We can help pursue justice for birth injuries

The birth of a child can be one of the most joyous events in a parent's life. During a pregnancy and birth, an enormous amount of trust is often placed in the hands of medical professionals. However, there are times when this trust can be shattered by instances in which a medical professional does not execute their duties in a correct manner and, as a result, a birth injury occurs.

Birth injuries can take many different forms, one of the most common being cerebral palsy. This condition is usually the result of an infant not getting sufficient oxygen shortly after birth. There are several factors which can contribute to the condition such as damage to the umbilical cord, fetal distress syndrome, and damage to the placenta. Often times, situations such as these are preventable when medical professional perform certain checks on the infant. It is when these types of checks are not done, however, when birth injuries can occur.

These types of oversights can lead to tragedy and deserve legal pursuit in the form of a medical malpractice and negligence lawsuit. Our firm understands the hardships and heartache involved in such situations and is experienced in holding medical professionals responsible for these types of incidents.

Nothing can repair the horrific feeling of having your child be injured by the negligence of the same people you were trusting to protect and care for them. However, proper legal action can possibly provide a family with a more comfortable path forward in coping with the situation and, equally as important, bring the individuals responsible for the damage to justice.
