Was Your Child Injured During Birth?

Should you suspect that your child was injured during birth, it is important to monitor your child’s symptoms and consult with a doctor in order to lessen any further consequences. The hospital, physicians, or other medical staff can be held liable for any damages related to a birth injury that was caused by medical malpractice.

If your child has any of the following conditions, they may be a victim of medical malpractice:

  • Cerebral and Erb’s palsy
  • Infant brain damage

  • Hearing or vision loss
  • Cognitive and emotional impairment
  • Bone and joint dysfunctions
