Birth Injury — A Form of Medical Malpractice
Defendants in birth injury cases can be hospitals, nurses, clinics and OB/GYN physicians. As in other types of medical malpractice cases, it is important to get the facts. An attorney will consult with medical experts, interview the medical staff at the hospital or clinic, and determine whether and how the provider deviated from the proper standard of care. Medical or hospital negligence cases can be complex. That is why parents whose child suffered a birth injury should work with an experienced and knowledgeable attorney.
Examples of Birth Injuries
Birth injuries can range from mild to profound. Each requires medical attention so the injury can be corrected to the greatest extent possible. Babies can suffer injuries such as these:
- Spinal injuries
- Brain damage
- Forceps injuries
- Erb's palsy
- Cerebral palsy
- Brachial plexus injury
A medical malpractice lawyer will consult with medical experts to determine the long-term cost of the injuries and their effect on your child's life.
