Birth Injury

Compassionate and Aggressive Legal Counsel After Birth Injuries

The birth of a child is most often a joyous occasion. However, errors made during the delivery process or right after birth can have life-long consequences for the baby and the family. Doctors and other medical staff members should be held responsible for the mistakes and medical malpractice that lead to birth injuries sustained by the child.

During the delivery process or immediately following birth, even a small delivery room mistake or doctor error can result in devastating life-long consequences for the child and the family.

At Hay & Knight, PLLC, our birth injury lawyers understand the emotional and legal issues that parents are facing after a birth injury. We focus on the medical evidence to demonstrate fault and hold the negligent doctor, nurse, health care professional, or hospital accountable.

Compassionate and Dedicated Birth Injury Representation

Birth injuries can result in physical disabilities, mental impairments, or other developmental delays. Determining whether your child’s condition is a result of doctor negligence or medical error during the birth process requires evidence. Some delivery room physicians will attempt to argue that your child’s developmental disorder, brain damage, or physical disability is a result of a birth defect.

We have extensive experience providing clients with personalized representation in a wide range of birth injury and delivery room malpractice cases, including:

  • Failure to monitor mother before or during delivery
  • Failure to perform a C-section
  • Misuse of forceps or vacuum extractor
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Hypoxia or other oxygen deprivation
