Catastrophic birth injuries affect too many families. If your baby was injured by a doctor’s negligence during delivery, you may be entitled to compensation.

What Can Go Wrong During Delivery and Injure Your Child for Life

As some mothers can tell you, giving birth is often filled with many unexpected surprises. While some women in labor experience minor deviations from their intended birth plans, others undergo devastating events that can end in tragedy.

Lack of oxygen to the baby, misuse of medical equipment by the doctor, and a variety of other factors can cause a baby to experience trauma that can cause injury and affect her for her entire life. 

Was Your Child’s Birth Injury Caused by Your Doctor?

You trust that your obstetrician knows what she is doing and will always put the concerns of you and your unborn child first, but unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. Sometimes, doctors are under pressure to finish with patients quickly and errors can occur. Furthermore, the hospital may encourage Caesarian sections over natural birth in order to make more money and your child could become endangered because of this. Unfortunately, some babies suffer catastrophic injuries before they have even made it through one day of life, all because of doctor negligence. These types of injuries include:

  • Fractures
  • Bleeding in the brain
  • Shoulder dystocia/brachial plexus palsy
  • Cerebral palsy due to lack of oxygen to the baby’s brain during delivery
  • Bruising, facial nerve injury, and lacerations caused by improper device use

Unfortunately, one minor mistake can result in a life-changing injury that can cause devastation and hardship for both the baby and her family for the rest of their lives.

Don’t Let the Doctor Get Away With It

We know that no one is perfect, but when an error leads to something as major as a catastrophic birth injury, someone needs to take the blame. The Andrew Kim Law Firm believes you should receive compensation that can pay for the medical treatment you and your baby require now and for the rest of her life. Contact us today if you agree.
