About Birth Injuries
A birth injury is defined as any injury a baby sustains before, during or immediately after childbirth. Although some amount of trauma is typical in any natural childbirth due to the often difficult passage through the birth canal, at times serious injury may occur and these injuries may have been preventable. That is when a birth injury may be grounds for a medical malpractice claim against whatever doctor, nurse or obstetrician was responsible for providing negligent care. Following are several types of birth injury cases our law firm can handle:
- Delayed c-section
- Cerebral palsy
- Brachial plexus injury
- Failure to diagnose pregnancy-induced hypertension or gestational diabetes
- Brain damage
- Premature delivery
- Negligent care of a newborn infant
