Laurel Birth Injury Lawyers

Birth injuries may be caused by the negligence of physicians, obstetrical nurses or other medical professionals or hospital staff. Some birth injuries are unavoidable, but medical errors are a causal factor in a number of birth injuries. Birth injuries and fetal demise occur in some cases because medical professionals fail to properly respond to signs of fetal distress, fail to timely perform a necessary cesarean section or make other critical errors.

Birth injuries that may result from medical negligence include:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb's palsy
  • Brachial plexus injuries (complications from shoulder dystocia)
  • Birth defects
  • Brain damage
  • Fetal demise (death)
