Birth Injuries

The birth of a child is an exciting and highly anticipated event for soon-to-be parents. A milestone in a family is about to occur. Plans and preparations are made to welcome the newborn.

However, when negligence occurs during a birth, the physical injuries of an infant combine with the emotional trauma felt by parents. At Cormany Law PLLC, we understand the legal complexities and the emotionally charged issues involved when a child's life has been changed just as it is starting.

When A Joyful Event Involving The Birth Of A Child Turns Tragic

Great trust is placed in obstetricians and other medical professionals to follow the basic standards of medical care. When they fall short, a newborn can suffer injuries that take the form of:

  • C-section injuries
  • Lacerations and bruising caused by forceps
  • Vacuum birth injuries
  • Infant hematoma
  • Spinal cord injuries

Your child may require immediate neonatal intensive care and face a lengthy recovery or a lifetime of challenges. Medical expenses, both now and in the future, require compensation from the negligent medical professionals. While no amount of money can undo the damage done to your newborn, justice must be served when unnecessary procedures were performed or a failure to diagnose occurred.
