Birth injuries are traumas that occur immediately before, during, or after the birth of a child. Birth injuries encompass a broad range of injuries and permanent disabilities including cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, brachial plexus palsy, brain damage, visual and audio impairments, speech impediments, and learning disabilities, and can even result in death. If your child exhibits symptoms of birth trauma, contact the Atlanta, Georgia firm of Fried Rogers Goldberg LLC Our birth injury lawyers can help you discern whether you should seek legal action to obtain compensation for the lifelong challenges you and your family may now be facing.
What Causes a Birth Injury?
A birth injury arises most often from the physician’s failure to expediently and appropriately respond to the conditions of the birth. The doctor’s failure to recognize pregnancy disorders, improper use of medical devices such as forceps, and failure to perform a necessary caesarian section are some of the most common types of physician errors that lead to birth injury. When a physician deviates from the accepted standard of care expected from a medical professional, he or she may be found liable for damages under the law. Contact our Atlanta, Georgia birth injury lawyers to find out if you have a valid case. Birth injuries commonly amount to personal injury and wrongful death, two areas of the law in which our attorneys are vastly experienced.
