The birth of a child is a time of great joy. However, the birth process is also a time in which your child risks serious and lasting injuries. During pregnancy and the birth of your child, every medical professional must take all proper measures to ensure a safe and healthy delivery for your child.
If a mistake during or prior to delivery causes your child’s serious injury, including cerebral palsy, our personal injury law firm can help. Our Austin medical malpractice lawyer is a father, and he dedicates our law practice to helping parents seek justice for harm done to children. Our firm has provided professional and aggressive representation to Austin residents since 1978.
Types of Birth Injuries
When parents discover that their child has a health issue, they will naturally have questions. This is especially true if the child’s health issues result from medical negligence during your child’s delivery. These health issues often come in the form of:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Shoulder dystocia/brachial plexus palsy
- Bleeding in the brain
- Broken bones/fractures
- Forcep injuries such as bruising, lacerations, or facial nerve damage
Children who suffer birth injuries often face a lifetime of difficulties, including physical disabilities, learning difficulties and a reduced ability to work when they come of age. Many families may not have the financial resources needed to modify their home, vehicles, and work schedules in order to care for their injured child properly.
Every parent wants to do everything possible to help his or her child, and our Austin medical malpractice lawyer understands that. Securing compensation after a birth injury can help ensure that your child has the resources he or she needs. Our experience in analyzing medical records and identifying deviations from the accepted standards of care can help hold those who let your child down accountable.
