St. Louis Birth Injury Attorneys

St. Louis Birth Injury AttorneysBirth injuries can have a lasting impact on the physical, emotional and financial well-being of children and their families. However, many parents don't realize that their child's injury may have been caused by a medical professional's mistake during delivery. Despite the diligence and skill exercised by most health care providers, medical errors can and do occur. When they do, the consequences are often tragic.

All too often, birth injuries are the result of medical malpractice on the part of doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, and other delivery room personell. Some birth injuries that may occur due to negligence during the delivery process are:

  • Asphyxia
  • Bone fractures
  • Brachial Plexus
  • Brain damage
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Erb's Palsy
  • Forceps injuries
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Paralysis
  • Infections
  • Internal bleeding
  • Meningitis
  • Microcephaly

When health care providers make mistakes, the hospital's staff may attempt to destroy evidence that tends to prove the cause of a child’s birth injury. That is why it is important to consult an experienced personal injury attorney immediately if you suspect your child's injury may have been caused by a medical error. Although an award of damages cannot compensate for the diminshed quality of your child's life, it can provide financial support for your child's medical bills and managed care now and in the future.
