Birth Injuries

When it comes to medical malpractice, birth injuries are one of the leading causes of medical malpractice claims. Mothers put their health and the health of their unborn baby into the hands of their doctor and medical staff before, during and after childbirth. One mistake by a doctor, nurse, or surgeon, and the mother and/or their child could suffer a serious injury. Some of the most common birth injuries include, but are not limited to:

  • Brachial plexus palsy/Erb's palsy
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Bone fractures
  • Hematomas
  • Untreated jaundice
  • Vaginal tears
  • Pre-eclampsia
  • Cesarean section errors

These are only a few of many injuries that a mother or her child can sustain due to a negligent medical professional.
