  • Birth Injury Cases

    Our Greater Detroit area attorneys may be able to assist you with your birth injury case regardless of the type of injury sustained. Some common types of birth injuries include:

    • Cerebral Palsy
    • Facial Paralysis
    • Brachial Plexus
    • Torticollis 
    • Internal bleeding
    • Dejerine-Klumpke Palsy
    • Spinal Cord Damage
    • Brain Injury
  • Birth Injury Causes

    During childbirth, doctors and staff may not always have you or your child’s safety in mind. Unfortunately, this can lead to devastating injuries that can stay with you or your child for a lifetime. Some of these instances may include the following:

    • Improper Forceps Use: In some cases, doctors may use forceps to help a child along if the mother is having issues giving birth. Done without proper care, the doctor may cause severe nerve damage to the head, chest, or neck of the child.
    • Hypoxia: Hypoxia during childbirth can be caused by the umbilical cord becoming tangled, an infection, or damage to the placenta. If gone unnoticed by your doctor or medical staff, they may be liable for damages caused to your child. 
    • Delayed Caesarian Section: If your doctor or medical staff fails to perform a caesarian section despite clear signs of distress during childbirth, they may be liable for any injuries to you or your child. 
    • Medical Negligence: The medical staff or doctors’ failure to monitor your baby’s heartbeat and oxygen levels during childbirth may constitute medical negligence. Pulling or twisting the child improperly during birth or misusing birthing tools can cause injury or death to both the mother and child.

    If you believe you or your child have fallen victim to any one of the issues listed above, you may be entitled to compensation. For more information about your legal recourse, please fill out our free case evaluation form today.

  • What Compensation Can I Recover In My Birth Injury Claim?

    Due to the intricacy of childbirth, it can be difficult to know what damages you can recover for your birth injury. For this reason, it is essential that you work with an attorney who is solely focused on a specific area of law and is highly trained to deliver the best results.
