Birth Injuries to Babies Attorneys
There is no greater joy than the birth of a child.
But what happens if something goes wrong before, during, or after childbirth? Birth injuries can result in severe damage and lasting harm. Families are left struggling against life-altering injuries, pain, and fear, often while facing incredible costs for life-long care.
Common birth injuries include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Shoulder and arm injury
- Brain injury or brain bleeding
- Nerve injuries
- Broken bones
- Skull fracture
- Brain bleeding
- Eye injuries
If your child was injured during pregnancy or during or after childbirth, your first priority is of course getting him or her the medical testing and care needed. As much as possible, keep a list or documentation of your child’s medical providers and dates.
Birth injuries can be caused by improper care, and may have been preventable and unnecessary. When a birth injury is caused by the negligence of the doctor or another healthcare provider, you and your child deserve compensation to address the lifelong losses, accommodations, and care that will be needed, and have a right to sue for medical malpractice.
Many families do not have health insurance that will cover the medical bills for birth injuries and the lifelong care they require. If a birth injury was caused by a health professional’s negligence, you and your child should be compensated.
Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo protects babies and their families
If you suspect your child’s injury was caused by mistake or neglect, you should contact a personal injury attorney experienced in birth injury cases as early as you can.
Determining who is responsible for a birth injury can be complex, and there are often many medical providers who cared for mother and child before, during and after birth. This can include obstetricians, pre-natal specialists, physician’s assistants, midwives, the hospital, nursing and other staff during delivery, and pediatricians or pediatric specialists called in after birth. This is just one of the reasons why it is so important to hire personal injury attorneys experienced in birth injury cases.
Birth injury cases also involve complex medical and legal issues.
The medical records for mother and child are often lengthy, and can require numerous experts to analyze the case. Oftentimes, complicated litigation is required to prove your child’s right to recovery. This is another reason to make sure you hire experienced birth injury attorneys to represent you and your family.

What Our Clients Have To Say
Very professional, made us feel relaxed & comfortable. Treated us with respect and fought hard for what we deserved. Highly recommended!
Will Rambo and his paralegal, Jenna Landis, were absolutely wonderful to work with following a car accident. They always kept me up-to-date with the case, and kindly answered my questions. I’m so grateful for all that they’ve done, and I cannot recommend them enough! Hopefully I won’t be needing their services in the future, but if I do I know I’ll be choosing them to represent me again.
This was my first time working with lawyers for a case and they were awesome. They always kept me in the loop and they explained everything very clearly. Very trustworthy and would recommend to anyone.
