Birth Injury?  Contact a malpractice attorney

If your baby suffers from conditions such as cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy or brain damage, those disabilities might be the result of medical malpractice during labor and delivery.

The severity of a birth injury may range from mild to severe, resulting from many causes. The attending physician and staff must properly address many potential complicating factors and work to make sure proper prenatal care is administered. Tragically, a delivery marked by medical malpractice or misdiagnosis can lead to infants suffering from seizure disorders, mental retardation, developmental problems and neurological disorders.
