Columbia Birth Injury Lawyer

Birth Injuries Caused by Medical Malpractice

Health care professionals such as doctors and nurses are legally required to maintain a standard of care for their patients. When they violate this duty, they can be held liable for damages. This includes medical professionals involved in obstetrics, gynecology and child birth. A birth injury can be extremely traumatic for family members, and result in life-long disabilities and impairments. Types of birth injuries include:

  • Brain damage
  • Erb's palsy
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Brachial Plexus
  • Oxygen deficiency
  • Uterine rupture
  • Shoulder dystocia

A child can be injured at birth in many different ways. When medical personnel observe a situation that could lead to a birth injury, they are required to take immediate action. A failure to act can make them accountable for any injuries that occur. If you child was harmed at birth, contact a Columbia personal injury attorney from The Sumner Law Group to discuss your case. We will conduct a thorough investigation of the incident and file a medical malpractice claim for any wrongdoing. Our firm is sensitive to the needs and concerns of parents with an injured child, and will remain committed to securing a settlement that provides the compensation you need.
