The birth of a child is supposed to be a joyful event. But when something goes wrong in the days leading up to delivery or once labor begins, it can cause serious, often life-threatening, complications for both the mother and child. If you're the parent of a child who was injured during childbirth, your son or daughter may be facing a lifetime of major medical bills. If your child was born with Cerebral Palsy, Brachial plexus injuries (including Erbs or Klumpke palsy), birth hypoxia and brain damage, shoulder dystocia or other conditions, you may have a medical malpractice claim against the doctors, nurses, hospital and other medical professionals who handled your care. Contact personal injury lawyers or medical malpractice attorneys who have experience and a proven track record representing victims of birth injuries to learn more about your legal options.
