Birth Injuries

baby-499976_960_720-300x240.jpgWhen a child is born, families expect to celebrate the birth of a healthy baby. Unfortunately, medical errors and other mishaps can occur during the birth that can bring this exciting time to a screeching halt. If a physician fails to take all of the necessary precautions and perform every step correctly during the delivery, the child may be seriously injured and feel those effects for the rest of his or her life.

When a newborn does not have access to enough oxygen during delivery, he or she may be develop cerebral palsy (CP). This is an incurable neurological disorder that affects the child's ability to move, balance and develop muscles. This disorder will require expensive, lifelong treatment. Many parents need to hire outside assistance in caring for their child.

Another commonly seen disorder that results from a birth injury is Erb's palsy. This condition occurs when nerve damage around the neck and shoulders happens due to difficulties during the delivery. Victims of Erb's palsy may face paralysis of the shoulder or upper arm. This is a very painful condition that will require months of recovery and rehabilitation. Luckily, this is usually not permanent.

It is important to hold doctors accountable for any negligence that has caused a birth injury to your newborn. These conditions can be the source of overwhelming medical bills for years to come. If your child has a birth injury due to the negligence of a medical professional, you should seek the legal assistance of an experienced birth injury attorney at Cohn, Lifland, Pearlman, Herrmann & Knopf who can help you get justice.
