The birth of a child is a joyous occasion. Sometimes, however, childbirth is accompanied by the discovery of an unexpected and serious birth injury. Some unexpected birth injuries could have been avoided or minimized through greater medical precautions. Other birth injuries may have been caused by the use of prescription medications during pregnancy. An experienced birth injury lawyer can evaluate the cause of your child’s birth injury and determine whether you and your baby may be entitled to compensation.

- Cerebral Palsy
- Erb’s Palsy
- Spina Bifida
- Cleft Lip and/or Cleft Palate
- Brain or Spinal Damage
- Limb or Skeletal Growth Problems
- Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension
- Heart Defects
- Other serious birth injuries or birth defects
