The Guidance And Legal Support You Need When Your Baby Is Injured During Birth
Childbirth is a time of great anticipation for everyone in the family. You entrust the process and the care to the hospital and the medical professional you are working with. When an injury that could have – and should have – been prevented happens, it is heartbreaking.
There are steps you, as a concerned spouse or parent, can take. If the baby was harmed during delivery because the facility or provider did not fulfill their duty of care, you may have a case.

Types Of Birthing Injuries We Represent
Unfortunately, depending on the course of action that was taken or was not taken, there are many types of injuries a baby can suffer. We will review what happened. We will explain your rights and tell you if you have a case. We will talk about the timeline and the process.
In general, we take birth injury cases related to:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Brain damage due to oxygen deprivation
- Brain injuries and intracranial hemorrhages due to forceps
- Nerve injuries
- Broken limbs
- Serious injuries and death
We will investigate what happened. As a team with a solid medical malpractice focus, we are able to establish compensation that is based on lifetime care costs and the costs associated with raising a child who has suffered a birth injury.
Any injury can be devastating. We understand the full scope of your experience: the physical, emotional and financial challenges you face. Understandably, you want to know what went wrong and if it could have been prevented. While nothing can make up for the heartache and grief you’ve suffered, we may be able to help you get the support you need.
