Do I have a Birth Injury Claim?

There are two different types of birth injuries: those caused by pregnancy complications or unpreventable natural agents and those caused by medical mistakes. In order to file a claim on your behalf, we must be able to prove that negligence occurred. If you suspect there may be a problem, there very well may be and we are here to help you evaluate whether you have a claim, and if so, what to do about it.

Examples of mistakes that can result in serious birth injuries include:

Complications that can increase the risk of birth injuries include:

  • Breeched baby
  • Premature labor
  • Complications with the mother
  • Head stuck in the birth canal

These types of labor and delivery complications can put the baby and the mother at risk. When complications arise, doctors and nurses must be very careful not to make mistakes that would put the mother and baby at an even greater risk of danger.

how not to be a lawyer

according to eric t. chaffin

“My father was a union witness at an arbitration in a steel mill. After the hearing, my father, dressed in blue jeans and a sweatshirt, stuck out his hand to shake hands with the company’s lawyer. The lawyer refused. The lawyer was not upset because my dad got the best of him but because he frowned upon working class people. I was the first person in my family to graduate from college. My dad used this story to remind me to respect others, to remember where I came from and as an example of how not to conduct myself as a lawyer.”
