Birth Injury and Birth Complications Attorneys
Having a child is perhaps one of the most joyous events for many hopeful families. The delivery of a newborn baby is a complicated and delicate process whose success relies heavily on successful execution of a combination number of factors. Unfortunately, more and more instances of birth injuries are occurring across Texas and the Southwest United States, including San Antonio. This can be due to a multitude of factors: poor prenatal care, internal complications, or inattentive medical staff. This also includes any mistakes made by the delivering physician, doctors, or other health care and medical personnel on site at the time of delivery. In a very singular sense of the term, birth injury and complications should be considered medical malpractice. Thankfully, where there is inattentiveness in the medical field, there are experienced birth injury and birth complications attorneys from Carabin & Shaw willing to defend those affected.
Regardless of the cause of birth injuries, in most cases they are irreversible, and may affect you or your child for the rest of their lives. Our attorneys know that in many cases such as this, your child’s future in many ways rests in our hands. In every birth injury case, our goal is to obtain maximum compensation for the child and family. By obtaining these financial resources, we can help facilitate them experiencing lives which are as comfortable, productive, and meaningful as possible, even if their first few crucial hours outside of the womb were difficult and stressful.
The most common forms of debilitating birth injury are:
- Shoulder dystocia
- Brachial plexus
- Erb’s palsy
- Klumpke’s palsy
These injuries and conditions are generally caused by doctor error or negligence during the birthing process. They can result in nerve damage and sometimes reduced motor function. Another common birth injury called prenatal asphyxia, can result in brain damage and reduced motor function due to a lack of oxygen supply in the child’s brain.
Childbirth can be a stressful time, but the last thing any new parents should have to deal with alone are any extenuating circumstances that may arise from birth of a child.
