Our Birth Injury Attorneys
Our birth injury practice includes cases involving:
- Shoulder dystocia: If the baby’s shoulder becomes lodged behind the mother’s pelvic bones during delivery, mistakes by medical professionals can cause permanent disability to the child.
- Cerebral palsy: Lack of oxygen to the brain during birth can cause this permanent disability that affects movement and coordination and can result in catastrophic brain injuries. Cerebral palsy can deprive a beautiful baby of the ability to ever function normally or to be able to care for themselves.
- Failure to perform a timely cesarean section: When doctors fail to recognize and respond to fetal distress or other life-threatening problems, they put the life of the mother and child at risk.
- Pregnancy-related negligence: Including failure to diagnose and treat gestational diabetes, improper management of high-risk pregnancies, failure to accurately estimate the size of the fetus and more
