When your infant has been injured before, during, or after the birth process, an experienced attorney can help you determine whether or not the harm was caused by medical malpractice. At the Law Offices of Kelly R. Reed, we can help you understand your options and make sure that your child gets the appropriate compensation for his or her medical care needs. We routinely handle cases against the healthcare facility or privately practicing doctor responsible for injuries to children.
Types of Birth Injuries
There are a number of mistakes that medical professionals can make that lead directly to infant injuries. It is the job of the obstetrician and nursing staff to monitor the health of your child during birth, and to ensure that everything is going smoothly. If they fail to properly monitor the health of your child, they may not notice if your child is in distress. These mistakes can be harmless, but they can also lead to serious physical ailments, such as the following:
- Brain Injury
- Cerebral Palsy
- Erb's Palsy
- Brachial Plexus Paralysis
- Shoulder Dysplasia
- Termination of Pregnancy
- Birth Defects
Life Care Plans
When your child has suffered a birth injury, your first concern is that he or she is taken care of immediately and that the harmful condition is stabilized. However, if your child has suffered a serious traumatic injury, you may have to cope with long-term issues as well. We can help you develop a life-care plan that will take care of your child for years to come.
