When a child suffers a birth injury due to medical negligence, the consequences can be severe and long-term.
Our firm understands how devastating a birth injury can be for a family and can help you hold those responsible accountable for the harm your child has suffered.

Why You Need a Birth Injury Lawyer
When a child suffers a birth injury because of medical negligence, there can be significant financial and emotional costs.

What Causes Birth Injuries?
Sadly, preventable birth injuries are often caused by medical malpractice. Medical professionals such as doctors, nurses, and technicians owe their patients a duty of care. When that duty is breached, the responsible party may be liable for any harm caused to the patient.
Some of the causes of birth injury due to medical malpractice may include:
- Failure to recognize the need for a C-Section
- Improper Prenatal Care
- Prolonged labor and delivery
- Failure to recognize fetal distress
- Improper vacuum and forceps-assisted delivery
- Failure to properly monitor the child
- Failure to diagnose
- Failure to Protect against premature delivery
If your child is suffering from what appears to be a congenital disability or birth injury, you may be trying to understand what went wrong and what you can do to meet your child’s needs. An experienced birth injury lawyer can help you identify if medical malpractice caused your child’s birth injury.
