What is a Birth Injury?

Birth injury describes an injury an infant sustains during labor or delivery. In the context of our practice, birth injury cases involve some sort of negligence on behalf of the doctor, hospital, or other healthcare professional. When an attorney can prove that there was an established doctor-patient relationship, the doctor breached his or her duty of care, and that breach proximately caused the injury, we can potentially secure financial compensation on behalf of the victim.

Birth Injury Compensation

Infants that sustain birth injuries, such as hypoxic brain injury or brachial plexus injuries, often develop permanent disabilities or disfigurement. For example, lack of oxygen to the brain can cause brain damage that results in cerebral palsy. Individuals with cerebral palsy will have a lifetime of medical expenses that a birth injury claim award could pay for. If your son or daughter was injured during labor or delivery, seeking a birth injury claim is like pursuing the money you will need to provide care for the rest of their life.

Standing Up for Victims of Birth Injuries

If your child suffered injuries during the pregnancy, delivery, or post-partum period as a result of a doctor or medical professional's negligence, those responsible should be held accountable for their actions. A birth injury due to negligence or malpractice can have life-altering consequences.

We handle cases involving the following types of birth injuries:

These injuries can have any of a number of causes, like improper use of vacuum extraction equipment or forceps, the failure to properly monitor fetal heartbeat, umbilical cord compression, errors during cesarean delivery, and other various forms of medical negligence.

Our Nashville birth injury lawyers are also prepared to handle wrongful death lawsuits for parents whose son or daughter died due to an injury sustained during labor or delivery. We have a thorough understanding of how medical malpractice and wrongful death laws overlap and can help you craft a compelling claim.
