Causes Of Birth Injury


When obstetricians make mistakes, babies can suffer a lifetime of problems like cerebral palsy, seizure disorders, and developmental delays. In the worst cases, these mistakes can be fatal.

You may have a claim for monetary damages if the actions, decisions or inaction of health care professionals resulted in serious injury or death during pregnancy, labor, or delivery. The Becker Law Firm represents clients in birth injury and death cases statewide and beyond.

Failure to follow these standards can lead to pregnancy complications and subsequent birth injuries.

    Should You Contact an Attorney?

    The reality is that most physicians have insurance. Just as you carry automobile insurance, doctors and hospitals have medical malpractice insurance. This protects them when they make a mistake and more importantly, it protects those who they have hurt.

    It can be difficult to properly raise a child with even minor birth injuries. Children who had their physical or mental possibilities taken away from them at birth deserve every opportunity to grow to their full potential. Those opportunities come at a cost—special therapies, adaptive technologies, and expensive surgeries. We can assemble a team of experts who will determine what your child will need to reach that potential. At the end of the case, you will have a customized life care plan, a roadmap to help you and your child navigate a better life.
