Modesto Birth Injury Lawyer

Schedule Your Consultation Today!

If your child was injured at birth, you might be adjusting to the reality that he or she will never be entirely self-sufficient. Your child's injury may have resulted in a permanent impairment, making it impossible to achieve independence, and your child may be financially dependent on you for the rest of your life. Furthermore, a serious birth injury may mean that your child will require ongoing medical treatment for years or decades into the future, treatment which can be incredibly costly.

When the Injury Could Have Been Prevented

Many parents who find themselves in your situation make a single mistake which ends up costing them greatly in the long-run: they assume that the obstetrician, nurses, and hospital personnel did everything that reasonably could be done to prevent the injury. While some birth injuries are entirely unavoidable, many can be directly attributed to the careless, reckless, or otherwise negligent actions of one or more of the attending healthcare providers.

Do not hesitate to contact us at the Law Offices of Steven A.

Examples of Birth Injuries Caused by Malpractice

There are many scenarios in which medical malpractice may be the cause of a child's birth injury. For example, if the doctor pulls too hard on the baby's head during delivery, nerves in the child's neck and shoulder may be stretched or torn--resulting in the brachial plexus injury known as Erb's palsy. Similarly, if the obstetrician fails to take effective action to resolve a distressed labor, such as if the umbilical cord is compressed and cutting off the oxygen supply to the baby, the child may later be diagnosed with cerebral palsy as a result of brain damage caused by oxygen deprivation.
