Birth Injuries

The birth of a child should be a joyous occasion, but unfortunately, it can sometimes result in unexpected and devastating outcomes. Our fertility malpractice attorneys are dedicated to helping families navigate the legal complexities surrounding birth injuries and seeking the compensation they deserve.

Understanding Birth Injuries

Birth injuries can occur due to various factors, including medical negligence, improper monitoring, or inadequate medical care. These injuries can have a profound impact on both the child and their family, leading to emotional distress, financial burdens, and long-term care needs. Some common types of birth injuries include:

  • Cerebral Palsy: This condition affects a child’s muscle control and movement, often resulting from oxygen deprivation during childbirth or other medical errors.
  • Erb’s Palsy: Caused by damage to the nerves in the upper arm, usually due to excessive force or stretching during delivery.
  • Brachial Plexus Injuries: Injuries to the network of nerves that control movement and sensation in the shoulder, arm, and hand. These injuries can cause partial or complete paralysis.
  • Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE): A brain injury resulting from oxygen deprivation before, during, or after birth, which can lead to long-term developmental delays and disabilities.

Impact on Families and Lifelong Effects

The consequences of birth injuries are not limited to the immediate physical harm suffered by the child. Families often endure immense emotional pain, financial strain, and the burden of providing lifelong care for their injured child. These injuries can have a lasting impact on the child’s quality of life, necessitating ongoing medical treatments, therapy, assistive devices, and specialized education.
