Phoenix Birth Injuries Lawyer

The birth of a new child is a long-awaited and joyous event for most parents. But for some, that joy turns to grief when they learn that their beloved and innocent child has been injured due to an avoidable medical error before, during, or after the birth and will have to face additional medical procedures and possibly a lifetime of limitations. In some cases, the injury is the result of medical malpractice.  An experienced Phoenix birth injuries lawyer has expert knowledge on medical malpractice and will fight for your children who have been subjected to negligence.

Of course, things can go wrong that are no one’s fault. Not every birth defect is a result of negligence. Sometimes a doctor does everything right, but the outcome for the child is not the best. However, when carelessness or negligence has harmed your child, the emotional impact is even more devastating. The central question is whether or not the doctor, hospital, and staff followed proper medical procedure and met the standard of care expected in the practice of obstetrics in Arizona.

Delivery Errors that Cause Birth Injuries

These deviations from the expected standard of care are often responsible for birth injuries:

  • Not monitoring the mother and baby during labor
  • Failing to diagnose a herpes infection or other STD before proceeding with a vaginal delivery
  • Letting labor continue too long once the membranes have ruptured
  • Performing a vacuum extraction or forceps delivery improperly
  • Failing to promptly deliver a baby in distress by cesarean section
  • Failing to identify and treat jaundice
  • Failing to administer oxygen to distressed baby

Common Types of Birth Injuries in Phoenix

Birth injuries resulting from negligence may include, among others:

  • Broken bones
  • Dislocations
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Nerve damage
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Infections
  • Blindness
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Bruising, swelling, or lacerations
  • Facial paralysis
  • Cephalohematoma, or pooled blood under the skull
  • Brain damage caused by kernicterus

The Ability to Care for Your Injured Child

Giving your child the best chance at a full and productive life after a birth injury will often involve extensive medical treatment along with specialized care, therapy, and education to overcome the injury to the greatest extent possible. So it is important that you do everything in your power to ensure that you will have the means to provide these things for your injured child. In many cases, the best way to do this is with the help of an experienced Arizona medical malpractice and birth injury attorney who will work with you to recover monetary damages for your child.
