Birth Injury and Medical Malpractice

Birth Injury and Medical Malpractice

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

Sometimes even with the most competent and well-trained doctors and technologies available, birth injuries can occur. On the other hand, there are many birth injuries that are a direct result of medical malpractice. In these instances, the damage is often irreversible and can have devastating effects that last for a lifetime, not only for the child being delivered, but for the mother giving birth.

At the law office of Charles N. Rock, our Newburgh medical malpractice lawyer understands how serious these injuries can be and have years of experience determining whether or not certain types of injuries have been a result of negligent health care providers.

Some of the most common types of birth injuries caused by medical malpractice include:

  • Erb’s palsy
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Oxygen deprivation
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Brain injuries
  • Kernicterus
  • Anoxic and hypoxic encephalopathy
  • Uterine rupture

All of these birth injuries have the potential to permanently change your life and the life your child. While there is no way to compensate for the personal and emotional harm that can be inflicted by these injuries, it’s still important to seek the legal justice and financial reparation you are entitled to so that you can move forward with your life and can obtain the proper medical treatment you deserve.
