Birth Injury Claims

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 birth defects lawyers at Casey, Devoti & Brockland handle birth injury claims on behalf of parents and their children.

Causes of Birth Injuries

As birth injury medical malpractice attorneys, we know birth injuries may be caused by a multitude of missteps — all stemming from negligence by attending medical professionals. As attorneys, we have seen birth injuries occur as the result of: 

  • Failure to anticipate potential birth complications, like the size and position of the baby
  • Failure to monitor or detect problems with fetal heart rate, oxygen levels or other fetal vital signs
  • Failure to order a timely C-section
  • Misuse or excessive use of delivery tools, such as forceps or vacuum extractors
  • Excessive pulling on the head or shoulders during delivery
