Medical negligence during the birthing process can lead to neurological disorders, such as cerebral palsy and brachial plexus injury (“Erb’s palsy”). Symptoms of these disorders range from mild to severe, with some children’s injuries being so severe that lifelong care is needed. A number of other serious birth injuries may occur when a doctor uses too much force to deliver a baby, or when the doctor fails to monitor the baby’s condition during labor or delivery. These injuries include fractures, tissue damage, paralysis, asphyxia, and brain damage. Birth injuries are often preventable, which is why you need an attorney who will investigate whether your child’s injury was the result of medical negligence.
Representing clients who are struggling to care for their injured child requires a team of lawyers, nurses and others trained to review the facts of these cases, including medical records. It can be very difficult to prove that even the most severe birth injury is the result of medical malpractice. That’s why you need attorneys on your side to investigate medical records and find the best medical experts to examine your child’s injuries. At The Levin Firm, we also work with highly-regarded experts to determine the type of medical malpractice and how and why it happened. At times, we will work with other law firms that have particular expertise to assure that our clients receive the most thorough and zealous representation.
