Medical Malpractice: Negligent Birth Injuries
Perhaps the most emotionally-scarring aspect of medical malpractice law involves birth injuries. A person is never more vulnerable to harm than at birth, and when something goes wrong it can lead to a lifetime of undeserved consequences for both the infant and parents. Even minor or common mistakes can prove catastrophic. Lawyers at Hilbrich Law Firm have been handling these types of medical malpractice cases for years and hold those who caused this unspeakable harm accountable.
Hilbrich Law Firm has successfully handled many birth injury malpractice cases. Birth injury cases include, but are not limited to the following:
- Failure to delay premature birth or administer medication to enhance fetal lung development resulting in cerebral palsy
- Failure to perform a timely cesarean section
- Failure to properly monitor newborn's blood gases and metabolic acidosis resulting in brain damage and cerebral palsy
- Failure to resuscitate a premature infant resulting in delay of affective ventilation in hypoxia
- Birth asphyxia (oxygen deprivation at birth) resulting in spastic diplegia and brain damage
- Failure to properly manage shoulder dystocia causing Erb's Palsy or Brachial Plexis injury
