As with all medical malpractice cases, birth injury cases are complicated. There are many medical conditions that can lead to fetal distress, and ultimately to birth injuries. Failure to diagnose pre-eclampsia and gestational diabetes, failure to properly position a baby for delivery, failure to properly deliver the child, and failure to properly monitor a child's vitals can create circumstances ripe for a variety of birth injuries:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Hypoxic or Anoxic injuries
  • Abrupted placenta
  • Erb's palsy
  • Complicated or delayed C-section
  • Brachial plexus injury
  • Shoulder dystocia

How much is my case worth?

Generally, if the liability issue (who was at fault) is clear, we base a case's value on your past medical expenses, future medical expenses, lost wages, loss of your future earning capacity, and pain and suffering. Based upon our extensive experience with personal injury cases, we are normally able to provide you with a range of estimated value.

In addition to the risks faced by the child, improper medical treatment during the birthing process can present significant risks to the mother. Our attorneys routinely work with a number of medical experts to determine the cause and long-term effects of birth injuries. While we recognize that no amount of money can compensate for an injury to a child, we are dedicated to helping ensure that our clients get the respect, response, and resources they need to take care of the financial responsibilities that result from birth injuries.
