Birth Related

We resolve Birth Related Injuries. If a child has suffered a loss of oxygen during their birth, the temporary suffocation may cause serious brain injuries. Cerebral Palsy is just such an example. Cerebral Palsy is not a disease, but an injury caused during the birth of a child. Cerebral Palsy is a medical mistake. The effects of such a mistake may take a few years to become apparent. If you have any fears or concerns that a child may have suffered a medical mistake, contact Art Liebling immediately. We will be glad to discuss with you any questions you may have about any birth related injuries. In most cases these injuries are irreversible. The most common forms of debilitating birth injury are shoulder dystocia, brachial plexus palsy, Erb’s palsy, and Klumpke’s palsy. These are generally caused by doctor error during the birthing process and result in nerve damage and reduced motor function of the arm. Another common birth injury, prenatal asphyxia, can result in brain damage. If your child has suffered a birth injury due to the negligence of a doctor or medical provider, your child deserves compensation. Your child needs help for the long-term care and rehabilitation your child needs, as well as the disability and loss of the enjoyment of life. If you have a question, call Art Liebling today.
