Detroit Personal Injury Lawyers Fighting For The Injured

Pursue Compensation for a Birth Injury

Birth injuries occur during labor or delivery, and are often caused by the negligence or carelessness of doctors, nurses, or hospital staff. If your child has suffered a birth injury, you could face millions of dollars in long-term medical treatment and care. That is why it is important to file a claim to pursue compensation as soon as possible. Our firm has guided countless clients to successful outcomes in birth injury cases. We will discuss your options, keep you informed, and fight on your behalf to seek justice from those responsible.

Common types of birth injuries include:

  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Cephalohematoma (bruising on the skull)
  • Brachial plexus injuries
  • Klumpke’s palsy

Birth injuries may be caused by pulling too hard on the infant during delivery, improperly using forceps or other medical instruments, and performing other reckless or negligent procedures. Doctors owe a duty of care to patients. This means they must provide effective, adequate, and reasonably safe treatment to improve the well-being of their patients. Failure to do so could result in catastrophic injuries and long-term suffering. If your child was injured during birth, we will conduct an investigation to determine who is responsible. Our team will work diligently as you seek the compensation you deserve.
