Child & Infant Injuries

1There is nothing more agonizing than being forced to cope with the injury of a child. Difficult childbirths can sometimes result in injuries to infants, but sometimes these birthing issues can, and should, be anticipated before delivering the baby.

With proper prenatal care and a highly-trained medical staff, many childbirth and infant injuries can be avoided.Sometimes injuries can occur at birth, as a result of medical malpractice by the doctors or hospital staff. Issues can include:


  • Improper use of vacuum equipment to assist with childbirth.
  • Poor use of forceps by doctors.
  • Failure to recognize and address oxygen issues, such as hypoxia.
  • Delays in ordering an emergency Cesarean Section.

Evaluating whether a doctor or medical staff performed up to medical standards requires trained investigators and researchers, who can parse through the details to discover where medical professionals made mistakes.
