A Strong Resource For Families After A Birth Injury
Every person involved in the delivery of a child, from the OB/GYN to the labor and delivery nurse, must take the appropriate steps to facilitate a healthy delivery. If any of these professionals fail at any point in the labor or delivery process, tragedy can result. Birth injuries can be fatal, or can create serious delays and disabilities for a child. If your son or daughter was harmed in labor or delivery, experienced lawyers can help you get the financial resources you will need for your child’s care.
At the law office of Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP, our attorneys have decades of experience helping victims of birth injuries. We represent victims throughout Delaware and the surrounding areas.
Causes Of Birth Injuries And How We Can Help
Birth injuries can happen when health care providers fail to take the appropriate action to prevent injuries and complications during and after childbirth. Injuries can occur when doctors fail to perform a timely Cesarean section or they delay delivery, when they fail to monitor the well-being of the baby or mother, or when they fail to recognize fetal distress and don’t take immediate action.
Negligent care can result in the following types of birth injuries:
- Hypoxia (lack of oxygen to the brain, which can cause profound developmental delays)
- Cerebral palsy
- Cortical blindness
- Brachial plexus injury
- Chorioamnionitis for the mother
