Birth Injuries

Child­birth is sup­posed to be a pos­i­tive time for fam­i­lies. Unfor­tu­nately, this isn’t always the case. Sta­tis­tics show that approx­i­mately 27 out of every 1,000 babies born every year in the United States suf­fer some type of birth injury dur­ing the deliv­ery process. Depend­ing on the cir­cum­stances, birth injuries can some­times result in per­ma­nent dam­age includ­ing paral­y­sis, cere­bral palsy, Erb’s palsy and more.

If your child suf­fered seri­ous injury dur­ing birth, it is impor­tant to under­stand that you may have legal rights and options. You may be eli­gi­ble to recover com­pen­sa­tion for your med­ical expenses, men­tal anguish, and other losses. Please con­tact one of the expe­ri­enced med­ical marl­prac­tice attor­neys at Cline Far­rell Christie & Lee today for a free case evaluation.

Com­mon Birth Injuries & Their Causes

Birth injuries can vary in sever­ity from minor to dev­as­tat­ing. In the most severe cases, birth injuries can even result in death. Some of the more com­mon birth injuries include:

Med­ical mis­takes rep­re­sent one of the lead­ing causes of pre­ventable birth injuries. When health­care pro­fes­sion­als fail to exer­cise a stan­dard level of care, bad out­comes can and do occur. Mis­takes that occur dur­ing the deliv­ery process often have dev­as­tat­ing and, in some cases, life­long consequences—physical, finan­cial, and psychological—for babies and their families.
