What is birth injury?
Birth injury describes an injury an infant sustains during labor or delivery.
In the context of our practice, birth injury cases involve some sort of
negligence on behalf of the doctor, hospital, or other healthcare professional.
When an attorney can prove that there was an established doctor-patient
relationship, the doctor breached his or her duty of care, and that breach
proximately caused the injury, we can potentially secure financial compensation
on behalf of the victim.
Birth Injury Compensation
Infants that sustain birth injuries, such as hypoxic brain injury or brachial
plexus injuries, often develop permanent disabilities or disfigurement.
For example, lack of oxygen to the brain can cause brain damage that results
in cerebral palsy. Individuals with cerebral palsy will have a lifetime
of medical expenses that a birth injury claim award could pay for. If
your son or daughter was injured during labor or delivery, seeking a birth
injury claim is like pursuing the money you will need to provide care
for the rest of their life.
Standing Up for Victims of Birth Injuries
If your child suffered injuries during the pregnancy, delivery, or post-partum
period as a result of a doctor or medical professional's negligence,
those responsible should be held accountable for their actions. A birth
injury due to negligence or malpractice can have life-altering consequences.
We handle cases involving the following types of birth injuries:
These injuries can have any of a number of causes, like improper use of
vacuum extraction equipment or forceps, the failure to properly monitor
fetal heartbeat, umbilical cord compression, errors during cesarean delivery,
and other various forms of medical negligence.
In addition, our compassionate Nashville birth injury lawyers are also
prepared to handle
wrongful death lawsuits for parents whose son or daughter died due to an injury sustained
during labor or delivery. We have a thorough understanding of how medical
malpractice and wrongful death laws overlap and can help you craft a compelling claim.
