Birth Injuries Change The Course Of Your Future

While childbirth is much safer today than it once was, it is not without risks for the mother or baby. Some of the most tragic failures of our health care happen time and again in delivery rooms throughout the country. Failure to intervene or intervening too early can lead to drastic injuries to the mother and child. In the worst cases, those injuries have lifelong consequences.

If your child was born with an unanticipated birth injury, you have questions. For clear answers to those questions and attorneys who have the experience and resources you need to get to the truth, contact Rowe, Weinstein & Sohn, PLLC. The consultation is free; the difference we make may be priceless.

Identifying The Cause

Lack of communication among caregivers, lack of understanding of complex medical issues related to pregnancy and birth, and inattentiveness due to overwork are just a few prime examples of how an injury can occur.

Other common causes of birth injuries include:

  • Failure to diagnose fetal distress during pregnancy, labor or delivery
  • Failure to perform a cesarean section in a timely fashion
  • Faulty handling of a baby whose shoulders have become lodged in the mother’s pelvis during delivery
  • Misdiagnosis of risk factors indicated during the prenatal period, including gestational diabetes or preeclampsia
  • Overmedication before or during labor
  • Administering or prescribing the wrong drug
  • Improper use of forceps and vacuum extraction devices during delivery

The lifetime medical treatment needs and other costs associated with birth injuries such as cerebral palsy can be staggering. We understand what is at stake, and you can depend on us to do everything we possibly can to see that your child has the resources they will need growing up.
