Birth Injuries

Phoenix Birth Injury Attorney

Complications in the process of labor and delivery can result in a wide variety of problems for a newborn baby. These problems, known collectively as birth injuries, can be mild or severe. Birth injuries are most often caused by operative deliveries, whether vaginal or abdominal, rather than spontaneous deliveries. Birth injuries have been reported to occur in 27 of 1,000 live births. Common birth injuries include:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Temporary Paralysis
  • Brain Damage
  • Erb's Palsy
  • Fractured Collar Bone
  • Klumpke's Palsy
  • Brachial Plexus Palsy

The most serious birth injuries are those that affect the brain. They are caused by oxygen deprivation or bleeding within the skull or brain. These injuries vary greatly in severity. They may lead to long-term seizure disorders or cause cerebral palsy or mental retardation. In the unfortunate event that a child is born with an injury, the family may be surprised with the event and faced with a future that will involve extensive, comprehensive and prolonged care for that child. To make things worse, the parents are often left uninformed about the true cause of their child's condition.

If your child suffers from a birth injury caused by medical negligence before or during the birth, contact the Phoenix personal injury lawyers at the Law Office of Willaim D. Black at 602.910.6144 for a free consultation.

It is not unusual for a birth injury to go undetected and thus undiagnosed for months or years. The injury may be due to one or more medical mistakes during pregnancy, labor or delivery. Parents are often left with the incorrect impression that their child simply has a birth defect that could not have been prevented. Most parents have no way of knowing what really happened to their child and many do not have any idea where to look for the answers. If we agree to represent you, we handle most birth injury claims on a contingency fee basis page.
