Navigating the aftermath of a birth injury is painful. Holding those accountable shouldn't be.

Many birth injuries are often the result of medical negligence—and could have been prevented. Morgan & Morgan can help you to pursue justice against the at-fault party and recover compensation for medical expenses and other damages so you can move forward with your life and your loved ones.

  • What Are Some Birth Injury Causes?

    Mistakes before, after, or during delivery can result in serious defects or injuries. These include:

    Improper Forceps Use: When a mother is having difficulty delivering her child or if the infant is improperly positioned in the womb, the attending physician may use forceps to help the child along. However, doctors have to be extremely careful, as forceps can cause nerve damage in the child’s neck or chest and other, less severe injuries to the head.

    Improper Vacuum Use: When the mother is having difficulties expelling the fetus from the birth canal, a vacuum may be needed to assist her. When the vacuum is improperly used, severe injuries to both the mother and newborn can result.

    Delay in Ordering a Caesarean Section: Emergency C-sections are ordered if the child is suffering from fetal distress, among other conditions. If the delivery team fails to recognize that the mother needs to have a C-section delivery, they may be liable if their failure to act causes injuries to the mother and/or child.

    Hypoxia: Hypoxia is a condition that takes place when the child’s brain is not receiving enough oxygen. During childbirth, hypoxia can be caused by a tangled umbilical cord, infection, or damage to the placenta. If hypoxia is not quickly addressed, the child can develop chronic mental and physical disabilities.

  • What Are Some Types of Birth Injuries?

    Many factors can result in a disability or injury to a child, but there may be a correlation between potential malpractice and the rate at which these injuries occur.

      • Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE)
