One of the most well-known types of birth injury, cerebral palsy is a permanent condition which adversely affects motor skills, senses, muscles, mental development, and other functions. It is caused by brain damage to the child either while in the womb or at the time of birth. Negligence and excessive force used by medical personnel can result in cerebral palsy.
Brachial palsy (or Erb’s palsy) is paralysis of the arm or hand resulting from damage to the nerves surrounding the neck and shoulder. If excessive force is used to pull the baby from its mother’s womb, nerve damage can result. Additionally, doctors should advise c-section births when a baby’s size may make it difficult to pass through the mother’s pelvis.
If your baby has suffered a severe birth injury due to medical malpractice or negligence, our lawyers will help you file a birth injury lawsuit and claim the compensation to which you are entitled. You may obtain compensation for medical care, as well as pain and suffering.
