Aggressive Representation For Victims Of Birth Injuries
There is nothing as exciting as preparing for the birth of child. If you had a smooth pregnancy, you hope for a smooth delivery. No one can ever be ready for complications during the birth, especially when problems during deliver forever alter the life of your baby.
When problems arise, doctors and medical staff must move quickly to help both the mother and the child. They receive extensive training on how to handle these situations, yet sometimes they make mistakes. Doctors and hospitals seldom admit to error. How do you know who is responsible? Who will help pay for the care your child will need and impact it will have on your child’s life?
At Dozier Law Firm, LLC, we can help you find out. If physician negligence was responsible for your child’s birth injury, we will aggressively pursue compensation on your behalf. Unfortunately, we have seen far too many birth injury claims. We understand the pain, devastation and financial costs associated with these types of injuries.
The Most Common Causes Of Birth Injuries
We are adept at handling medical malpractice claims causing cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy/ brachial plexus palsy, broken bones and even death. The most common causes of birth injuries are:
- Failure to perform a caesarian after delayed birth
- Forceps injuries from forced extraction
- Shoulder dystocia and obstructed labor
- Medications given to the mother prior to and during delivery
- Improper monitoring of mother and child prior to and during delivery, including fetal heart rate
Many of these injuries are avoidable with continuous monitoring and proper manipulation of a baby’s body during delivery. Our lawyers are very knowledgeable about these kinds of injuries and can advise you after investigating your case as to whether you have a valid medical malpractice claim.
