Understanding Birth Injuries

Approximately 28,000 infants suffer birth injuries in the U.S. every year. These range from minor injuries to trauma that will have a lifelong impact on a child’s life. If your child’s injuries resulted from obstetrical negligence, we can assemble a powerful team of attorneys, nurse consultants, and medical, technical, economic, and life care experts to present a compelling case on your behalf.

We can take on lawsuits involving any of the following. Call our firm today at (602) 483-6114:

  • Birth injuries caused by oxygen deficiency during pregnancy or as a result of trauma during birth. This can result in serious and permanently disabling brain damage, ranging from learning disabilities to cerebral palsy. This brain damage may not be evident until the child is several months or years old.
  • Erb’s palsy, brachial plexus palsy, or other shoulder injuries that may heal shortly after birth, or may cause serious and permanent paralysis.
  • Delayed cesarean section (C-section) or a failure to perform a C-section. If ultrasounds or other tests indicated the baby’s head was too large for the birth canal, or the baby’s heartbeat showed signs of distress, the doctor may have been negligent in waiting to recommend or perform a C-section.
  • Use of excessive force during delivery, which may cause a forceps injury and permanent brain, spinal cord, or other trauma. Excessive force also can cause the mother’s uterus to rupture.

When handling these cases, our Phoenix birth injury attorneys rely on physical evidence and witness statements to determine exactly what occurred and how negligent medical care may have been involved. It is important to act quickly so we can begin building a compelling case on your behalf.
