Pursuing Justice After A Birth Injury

You buy every book on pregnancy and parenting and you have closets and drawers lined with clothes, incrementally growing in sizes based on months. You tick days off your calendar in an excited countdown. Then, a day you have been anticipating for months ends in a birth injury that changes you and your baby's life forever.

Do not be afraid to pursue compensation.

If your infant has been injured as the result of negligence on the part of an OB-GYN, a midwife, a nurse or a hospital, the party or parties responsible should be held to account for their careless actions. That is why we have civil courts and that is where the lawyers at Scott M. Brown & Associates can help.

Types Of Birth Injuries

The moment of birth is a critical juncture that could affect your baby for the rest of his or her life. Common injuries include:

  • Eclampsia or pre-eclampsia, which are dangerous to both the mother and the baby
  • Shoulder dystocia, which could result in Erb's palsy
  • Hypoxia, a deprivation of oxygen to the body
  • Infections
  • Severe brain damage, which could lead to permanent conditions like cerebral palsy
