Los Angeles Birth Injury Accidents Lawyers

Birth injury is a specific type of medical malpractice suit that deals with injuries caused during childbirth as the result of medical negligence or incompetence. Injuries at birth can be more severe than injuries sustained later in life because they often center around the head or spinal column. Because of this, such injuries can often cause life long damage to the child. A good physician should be able to recognize the warning signs of an impending birth injury and take steps to avoid it. While not all forms of brain damage or injury to the child can be prevented, many can. If you feel you may have a case, contact the California Attorney Group today for a Free Consultation. We will help you get the maximum compensation for your California and Los Angeles birth injury case.

Cerebral Palsy

A common focus of birth injury lawsuits is cerebral palsy, or CP. Cerebral palsy is a condition that results in lack of muscle control and development and has been linked to of brain damage sustained during birth complications through certain injuries such as oxygen deprivation and head trauma. If your child has developed cerebral palsy and you believe it could have been avoided by more competent medical care during birth, you may be able to sue for compensation to help you cover the medical bills and other costs that having a child with cerebral palsy will incur. Contact our experienced birth injury Legal Team at California Attorney Group as soon as possible.

Mental Retardation

Mental retardation may come about as the result of brain-damaging injuries suffered during childbirth. While some forms of retardation are the result of genetic disorders and have probably been with the child throughout prenatal development, others can be caused by injuries similar to those that cause CP. Mental retardation may mean that your child will require constant medical care throughout childhood or for the rest of his or her life. If this is the case, you will certainly want to make sure you receive the financial compensation you need from the responsible parties in order to provide for your child. Often, birth injuries can be avoided by careful and competent medical care during labor. If you believe your child's injury could have been avoided this way, contact the California Attorney Group today for consultation. We will help you.

Brachial Plexus Injury

The brachial plexus is a nerve bundle that connects the spine to the arms and upper extremities. If the brachial plexus is damaged during labor, which can happen with natural childbirths, the arm on the affected side of the body can lose muscle control, feeling, or all mobility entirely. An injury such as this can often be avoided by an attentive and competent physician during the birthing process. Obstetricians can improperly monitor pregnancies and provide false information regarding due dates or child size, which can lead to the baby being too large to fit through the mother's birth canal. If the medical professional on the scene at the birth can recognize this soon enough, there are a number of measures that can be taken to prevent injury to the child. If your child is injured because this was not done, please contact the California Attorney Group today for a Free Consultation. We will take the time to evaluate your case and can determine the maximum compensation possible. Give us a call -- we look forward to helping you.
