Earning Results Through In-Depth Research And Aggressive Advocacy
A birth injury can cause a range of problems, including:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Brachial plexus injury
- Broken clavicle
- Injuries to the mother
- Wrongful death
Many of these injuries are catastrophic and will require a lifetime of expensive medical care from specialists. If medical malpractice caused the injury, you may be entitled to compensation for losses such as medical bills, long-term care, pain and suffering, and lost earning capacity. Working with medical experts, as well as life-care planners and economists, we will calculate your past and future damages for a birth injury.
We will also perform a thorough investigation to find out what went wrong during your child’s birth. We examine medical records for evidence of labor and delivery negligence such as failure to perform a C-section, failing to call an appropriate specialist, failing to properly monitor the fetus, or improper delivery techniques. We can help you get answers and a measure of justice for your child.
CEREBRAL PALSY LAWYERS
WHAT IS CEREBRAL PALSY?
Cerebral palsy (CP) is caused by damage to a baby’s brain. The injury can occur at the beginning of pregnancy, during labor, or within the first two years of the babies life. Cerebral palsy can be caused by oxygen deprivation during labor or after birth. A family can be awarded compensation if their attorneys can prove in court that signs and symptoms of the risk factors that cause CP went unrecognized.

SHOULDER DYSTOCIA – ERB’S PALSY & KLUMPKE’S PALSY
Shoulder dystocia occurs occurs during the birth process when one or both of the babies shoulders get lodged behind the mother’s pelvic bone during birth. This can cause nerve damage to the brachial plexus ( a large network of nerves that run from the spinal cord to the arms and shoulders). When the nerves of the upper brachial plexus are damaged, it can results in Erb’s palsy.
