Birth Injury Lawsuits

Despite modern advancements in medical technology, there will always be a possibility for mistakes during labor and in the delivery room. In fact, complications during childbirth are fairly common. However, if physicians cannot address these complications in a timely manner, then they risk serious birth injuries to the mother or baby. The attorneys at Casey, Devoti & Brockland handle birth injury lawsuits on behalf of parents and their children.

Causes of Birth Injuries

  • Failure to anticipate potential birth complications, like size and position of baby
  • Failure to monitor or detect problems with fetal heart rate, oxygen levels or other fetal vital signs
