Birth Injuries Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

The last hurdle in bringing a child into the world is the delivery process. After several months of carrying a child, it is finally time to begin the next phase of their development. Giving birth can have risks, but with the excellent medical technology and techniques available, these risks are greatly reduced in modern times. Unfortunately, medical mistakes can still be made that can put the baby at risk during delivery. If not performed correctly, birth injuries can occur that may impact a child’s health, even causing cerebral palsy.

One of the biggest injury risks to a baby during delivery is lack of oxygen. Often, labor may take hours, and during this time the baby is still relying on its mother to provide oxygen through the umbilical cord. If anything occurs that impinges the umbilical cord, it can cut off the supply of oxygen. It is vital that the medical delivery team is monitoring the baby for distress and is aware of the position. It only takes a few minutes of oxygen deprivation for a baby to be at risk for brain damage, which can result in cerebral palsy.

Cerebral Palsy Caused During Delivery

Some children with cerebral palsy had a birthing injury that caused oxygen deprivation or brain damage. This can occur when the umbilical cord is pinched during delivery, or it can occur from damage caused from forceps or vacuum extraction removal. In some circumstances, a long labor over 18 hours can endanger the health of the baby. When obstetricians and the delivery team do not carefully monitor the baby for distress and react quickly to perform emergency surgical delivery, cerebral palsy and other brain injuries can occur.

If your child was born with cerebral palsy or another form of a brain injury caused by mistakes made during delivery, the medical team may be guilty of medical malpractice. If the brain injury was caused by errors made by the delivery team, the doctors and facility may be liable for damages.

What Our Happy Clients say

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
