New Hampshire & Maine Birth Injury Attorney
Were You or a Loved on Injured During Labor?
Nothing is more important to parents than the health of their new born
child. Many parents will take numerous precautions throughout a pregnancy
and devote months of care, effort and money to ensuring that their baby
is born into this world happy and healthy. While unforeseen birth complications
are sometimes inevitable, there are certain birth injuries or illnesses
that could have been prevented had proper procedures been met. In fact,
it is reported that there are more than 28,000 birth injuries per year
in the United States.

Doctors, nurses, obstetricians, and other health-care providers are required
to uphold certain standards of medical practice. This means that should
their negligence or failure to meet these standards result in a birth
injury, they can be held liable for compensating families for the damages
that incurred. Some examples of the common types of birth injuries are:
- Erb's palsy
- Brachial plexus injuries
- Cerebral palsy
- Facial paralysis
- Brain and spinal cord injuries
- Fetal distress (hypoxia)
Birth injury cases will always vary on a unique basis. Our firm understands
that while compensation is essential to addressing the birth injuries
or illnesses or to providing long-term care, these cases also involve
achieving justice. Negligent medical professionals must be held liable
for their careless acts, and our firm has the well-versed legal tools
and strategies needed to file
personal injury claims.
