Birth Injury Lawyer in Irvine
Every parent entering a delivery room always wants to come out with good news. That’s because the arrival of a newborn is supposed to be a beautiful moment for those involved. But for some, it’s been a constant reminder of the pain of watching their loved one get denied the chance to live a normal life.
Injuries that occur during birth tend to have long-term effects not only on the child but also on the parents and the extended family. We’ve seen cases where children need supervised care for the rest of their lives due to the injuries they sustained when they first arrived in this world. Parents, on the other hand, have had to give up their careers, make a complete U-turn in their lives, and redirect this energy into taking care of their loved ones.
At Morgan and Morgan, we’ve handled many similar cases and helped the injured obtain the kind of compensation that factors in their current and future needs. For context, not so long ago, our firm won a $38 million award for a birth injury victim.

What Are Some Examples of Negligence That Could Lead To Birth Injuries?
Negligence in birth injury cases manifests in various forms. It could be inadequate prenatal care, delayed C-sections, improper use of delivery tools, or even failure to monitor fetal distress. Whether or not you suspect negligence, you should have your case reviewed by a birth injury specialist from our team to establish the facts.
When Is a Hospital Liable for a Birth Injury?
Hospitals may be held liable for birth injuries if their staff acts negligently, usually by deviating from the expected standards of care in this profession. This can include errors in monitoring the mother and baby, miscommunication among healthcare professionals during the childbirth process, and failure to provide the proper medication.
Who Else Besides a Hospital or Healthcare Provider Can I Hold Responsible?
In addition to hospitals and healthcare providers, there have been cases where pharmaceutical companies (if a medication caused harm) and medical device manufacturers have been held liable for birth-related injuries. Depending on the nature of your case, you may also be able to take legal action against third parties, such as laboratory services, involved in the birthing process.
What Are Some Serious Birth Injuries That Could Impact My Child’s Life in the Long Run?
Cerebral palsy, brachial plexus injuries, brain damage, and spinal cord injuries, are the most common examples of birth injuries that can have long-term effects on the victim. These conditions can lead to developmental delays, physical limitations, and a lifetime of medical needs, which is why you need an experienced Irvine birth injury lawyer to help maximize your claim.
