Nerve damage, brain injuries, brachial plexus injuries, broken bones, and
cephalohematoma are just some of the many injuries that a baby may suffer
at the hands of a negligent doctor. When doctors fail to provide their
patients with a standard level of care and injury results, they can and
should be held accountable for their actions. An attorney may file a
birth injury lawsuit on behalf of the injured child and his or her family seeking compensation
for the damage caused by the doctor or hospital.
Birth injuries may occur for a variety of reasons, including:
- Failure to plan and carry out a necessary C-section
- Improper use of birth assisting tools, including vacuums and forceps
- Failure to identify signs of fetal distress
- Failure to identify and treat a maternal infection
- Improper use of Pitocin
A birth injury can have devastating consequences not just for the injured
child, but for their family as well. In addition to the pain that comes
from watching a child suffer from a physical or cognitive injury that
could have been prevented, the financial impact of an injury can place
a severe strain on a family. Therapy, surgeries, and long-term care can
cost tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. A parent may have
to sacrifice their career in order to care for their child, furthering
an already stressful financial situation.
If your child has suffered a birth injury that you believe could have been
prevented, contact The Maher Law Firm to schedule a free case evaluation.
