There is no adequate compensation for an unnecessary injury occurring during birth, but Koester & Bradley, LLP can help fight for the rights of the child and parents. Childbirth can be one of the riskiest times for a family, a mother, and a child. The effects of delivery complications can last for life, shatter the dreams of new parents, or even cause death. These injuries can occur during the entire term of the pregnancy, and not just at the birth. Where the injury was diagnosable, treatable, or avoidable, the baby and parents’ rights must be protected. Birth injuries can be wide ranging from facial nerve palsy, bone fractures, Perinatal Asphyxia, Cephalohematoma, Brachial Plexus Injuries (BPI), Intracranial Hemorrhage/Subarachnoid Hemorrhage, or even stillbirth.
Almost all injuries occur either as a failure to correctly diagnose and treat a condition or disorder, or as complications during a pregnancy or delivery. Unfortunately, some all too common examples include: failure to recognize pregnancy disorders, the improper use of medical devices, the failure to timely perform a caesarean section, improper appraisal of a baby’s health in the womb, and improperly administering prescription drugs.
Birth injuries are a special type of malpractice claim because pregnancy and birth is a very complicated matter.
