Common Birth Injuries We Handle

by actuate | November 28th, 2016

Any injury sustained in the care of a medical professional can be both physically and mentally traumatic. When the people we trust with our health let us down, it’s hard to know where to turn. That feeling is compounded when one of your children sustains a birth injury as a result of medical negligence or incompetence.

Birth injuries come in several forms, but some common injuries that we see often at Lowell Stanley are:

  • Cerebral Palsy, a physical and developmental disorder that can result from oxygen deprivation during delivery, exposure to in-utero infections, head injuries during childbirth, and more.
  • Erb’s Palsy, a nerve disorder caused when infant’s heads are stretched to the side during childbirth.
  • Uterine rupture, a potential fatal event that is caused by a full-thickness tear of the uterine walls in which doctors may be able to diagnose early.

If your child sustained a birth injury as a result of medical negligence, you’re going to need significant financial resources to get him/her the medical care they need.
