The birth of a child is a wonderful and joyous occasion. Though more than four million babies are born every year in the United States, a birth should not be viewed as routine by any medical practitioner, as traumatic injuries may occur during delivery. Although some injuries may not be preventable, medical negligence or medical malpractice may contribute to some injuries, permanent disabilities or even death. If you believe negligence or malpractice caused your child a birth-related injury, contact Burnetti, P.A. for a free consultation.
Pregnancy complications during childbirth may result in birth trauma. Some of the most serious birth injuries include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Facial paralysis
- Child brain damage
- Orthopedic injury
- Cerebral palsy
- Spinal cord damage
- Brachial plexus palsy
- Temporary paralysis
- Group B strep
An injury law firm can help determine what may have happened during pregnancy and birth that contributed or caused an injury. By reviewing medical records, including prenatal care, delivery, and after delivery care, and by consulting with experts, a birth injury lawyer can help analyze how a child was injured during the birth process, including if there was a delivery room error; if the harm was preventable; and if the nurse practitioner, midwife, anesthesiologist or doctor may have been negligent in your child’s birth.
Birth traumas can cause permanent physical damage, plus severe emotional and financial distress for the injured child and family members. Because of this, Burnetti, P.A. works hard to ease the worries and concerns of birth injury clients.
Burnetti, P.A. is positioned to assist clients by partnering with experts in the medical community to assess the long-term care needs, plus providing aggressive representation to obtain the financial resources and peace of mind in knowing that a child will be cared for throughout their entire life.
