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.

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.

I had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
