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.

Care for a child with labor and delivery injuries can be extensive and lifelong. Our primary goal is to obtain maximum compensation for your child. Coker Law attorneys will thoroughly evaluate recovery of damages to provide for your child’s future care. These financial awards are a crucial resource to allow your child and you to live a life that is comfortable, productive and meaningful.
