When to call a birth injury attorney

When to call a birth injury attorney

Having a child is one of life most momentous occasions.  While in the majority of cases, the labor and delivery are without complication, statistics show that nearly one in 20 infants suffer birth injuries.  The injuries may range from a mild concern that resolves with minimal or no medical intervention in a matter of hours, or a long-lasting injury that impacts the child for a lifetime.  If you have any concern about a potential birth complication, it is important to contact a California birth injury attorney right away for a consultation.  

Birth injury attorneys have years of experience and training understanding the medical/legal aspects of negligence affecting newborns, whether medical errors occur as part of prenatal care, during labor and delivery, or negligence, or as part of newborn care.  When medical errors occur that lead to harm, it may be possible to file a medical negligence or birth injury claim.

Some of the more common birth injuries include, but are not limited to, failing to diagnose and treat prenatal conditions, shoulder dystocia, brain injuries caused by hypoxic ischemic events – which may lead to cerebral palsy and life-long cognitive delays – preterm birth, and jaundice.   Each of these conditions may impact a child’s future development, physically, cognitively and emotionally.  

If you have questions, or believe that your child may have suffered a birth injury due to a medical mistake, please contact the dedicated California birth injury attorneys at Bostwick & Peterson, LLP for an immediate consultation.
