Birth Injuries

Medical Negligence During Birth

Injuries which occur during birth may at best cause undue upset, complications and medical costs for the parents and these deserve to be addressed with compensation. Sadly, many birth injuries are a lot more severe than this and can cause serious conditions which the child must live with for the rest of his or her life. Medical errors occurring before, during and just after childbirth that result in injury to the child constitute medical negligence. An Atlanta personal injury attorney can advise as to your best course of action for pursuing compensation and damages. Common birth injuries and their effects include:

  • Brain damage

  • Nerve damage
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Bell’s palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Klumpke’s palsy
  • Infant hematoma
  • Bone fracture or injury
  • Soft tissue injury
  • Scarring
  • Cesarean section injuries
  • Vacuum birth injuries
