Common Birth Injuries

Did Your Baby Suffer Injuries During Delivery?

How The Moore Law Firm Can Help You

Few moments in life are as wonderful as the birth of your child. Sadly, this precious occasion can be turned into a nightmare when doctors and medical staff fail to pay adequate attention to your labor. Seven out of every 1,000 babies delivered in the United States are injured by negligent or inattentive medical personnel during birth. For these babies and their families, the often life-long injuries sustained during this time can be both costly and emotionally damaging.

At the Moore Law Firm, our medical malpractice attorneys have over 50 years of combined experience in aggressively seeking compensation for families who have been impacted by these avoidable injuries. Doctors and medical staff are responsible for reducing complications and ensuring a smooth birth. When they fail to do so, you have a right to seek compensation for all of your damages.

Types of Birth Injuries

Common avoidable birth injuries include:

  • Brain injuries
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Brachial palsy
  • Dystocia
  • Developmental delays
  • Death

Some complications may arise during labor due to your baby’s size or the shape of your pelvis. Your doctor should know the signs of these potential complications and be prepared to deal with them prior to your labor. Even when these problems are unnoticed prior to labor, modern doctors and hospital staff are equipped to deal with the unexpected.

You And Your Baby Deserve The Highest Care

Frequently birth injuries are caused not by medical complications but by misconduct or neglect on the part of medical professionals. Many birth injuries are caused by a lack of oxygen reaching your baby during delivery. Others are caused by inappropriate handling or misuse of forceps in completing delivery, or too much medication reaching your baby from inadequately monitored epidurals and IVs. When you go into labor, you trust that you and your unborn child will receive the best care available.

Doctors, medical staff, and the hospitals they work for are required to provide you with the best care available. If they fail to do so, you and your child may suffer injuries that impact your quality of life and lead to significant medical expenses. Doctors should pay for the results of their negligence.
