While minor trauma is often inevitable during a natural childbirth, there are certain situations stemming from medical malpractice or negligence that may cause serious birth injuries to occur. A birth injury of this kind may affect a child for life, leading to an inability to lead a normal life and provide for oneself.
Pregnancy and the birthing process are supposed to be one of the most joyous celebrations of life that a family can go through. Should this not go according to plan, especially should a medical professional ne negligent or careless in any way, it can be anything from inconvenient to terrifying or even tragic. At our firm, we are here to help represent the interests of the victims of these types of birth injuries and will go above and beyond in our efforts to ensure that justice is demanded on their behalf.
During the birthing process and immediately after, it is essential that a child receives the proper levels of oxygen. If for whatever reason they do not, it can result in asphyxiation. If the symptoms of this condition are not properly diagnosed and immediately treated, it can lead to permanent damage.
