Birth Trauma

Birth trauma or birth injury refers to injuries of the tissues and organs of a newborn that occur during childbirth, which can occur as a result of mistakes by doctors and medical staff. The consequences can be devastating to parents, families, and the development of the child.

If your infant was disabled or fatally injured during childbirth, you need to ensure that you are able to pursue a successful legal claim against every doctor, person, or facility which is responsible. Children who suffer birth injuries may never have the opportunity to develop as they otherwise would have. Even those without obvious physical injuries may be left with seizures, behavioral problems, speech and language impairments, learning disabilities, developmental delays, cognitive impairments or intellectual deficiencies.
