The birth of a child is a moment of tremendous joy, but it is not without its risks. There are many things that can go wrong during delivery that can leave a child with serious, long-term and even fatal injuries. Your doctors and their support staff have an obligation to provide care that meets certain standards. When they fail to meet those standards and they cause an injury to your child, they need to be held accountable.
Common birth injuries include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb's palsy
- Shoulder dystocia
- Brain damage from oxygen deprivation (hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy)
Understanding the difference between unavoidable accidents and preventable mistakes requires an experienced attorney who knows how to look at medical records and make clear and persuasive determinations regarding the standard of care that was provided by your physician and his or her support staff.
