Handling Your Birth Injury Case
Has your baby been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, Erb’s Palsy, or
brain damage that occurred during the pregnancy or the birth process?
If so, you may have a birth injury claim against your doctor, his/her
staff, or the hospital and its staff. Birth injury or birth trauma claims
are extremely complex and require prompt and thorough investigation. You
need a Pennsylvania birth injury lawyer to represent you and your child
during this difficult time.
Handler, Henning & Rosenberg LLP, our team is experienced in investigating and litigating birth injury
cases. We have the experience you need to navigate through this difficult
and complicated process.
Types of Birth Injuries
In a birth injury case, damages may be recovered for you or your child
if the involved health care professionals failed to follow or abide by
the usual standards of care and thus caused your child a significant injury.
The Pennsylvania birth injury attorneys at our firm are highly skilled
in handling injury cases arising from birth incidents.
Cerebral palsy – This diagnosis involves a complex brain injury caused by lack
of oxygen to the brain or by infection. This injury can cause cognitive
deficits, seizures, spasticity in the arms or legs, inability to eat and,
in very severe cases, inability to breathe without the assistance of a
ventilator. The causes of cerebral palsy are many and varied. A significant
number of babies have cerebral palsy because of mistakes during prenatal
office visits and/or during the labor and delivery process.
Brachial plexus palsy – The nerves of a baby’s arm run from the neck, under the
shoulder, through the armpit and down the arm. These nerves can be torn
during delivery such that the child is left with a permanent disability
in movement and growth of the arm, hand or shoulder. This is a brachial
plexus injury (also known as “Erb’s Palsy”) and is often
caused by negligence during childbirth.
Other birth-related injuries – During childbirth, instruments which are used to assist the delivery
of the baby can cause skull fractures, bleeding in the baby’s brain,
spinal cord injuries or facial scarring. Additionally, certain drugs administered
by the doctor or nurse during labor can cause injuries to the mother if
not properly monitored and controlled (for example, rupture of the uterus;
and abruption or tearing of the placenta). Sometimes, these birth injuries
are caused by medical negligence.
Injured babies require immediate and extensive care, and, unfortunately,
the medical bills add up very quickly. If your child has suffered serious
birth injuries, we are here to help you.
