Legal Action After a Birth Injury
Any injury sustained by an infant during labor or delivery is considered a birth injury. In some cases, these injuries do not require significant medical expenses for full recovery. In others however, the injury is so severe that it may pose life-long struggles for both the child and his or her family.
Birth injuries that demand legal action include:
- Brachial plexus injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Brain injury
- Cerebral palsy
- Shoulder dystocia
These injuries may be caused by inadequate monitoring of the laboring mother, over-administration of dangerous medications, aggressive delivery techniques, failure to respond to medical emergency, and other forms of healthcare worker negligence. Regardless of the cause of injury, you need an experienced Pittsburgh birth injury attorney on your side who can identify the liable parties and fight for the compensation your family and child deserve.
