Advocacy When A Birth Injury Has Changed Your Child's Life
You do everything you can to prepare for the birth of your child, and you expect your doctor and other medical professionals to do the same. If your child suffered a birth injury or was born with cerebral palsy, it may have been prevented with proper care.
At the Atlanta law offices of Houck | Reynolds, LLC, we protect the rights of families whose children are injured at birth as a result of negligent care and medical malpractice.
Aggressively Pursuing Justice For Injury Victims
Birth injuries and defects can result from a failure to diagnose potential problems during pregnancy, as well as from mistakes made during the delivery process. With the exception of dystocia cases, most birth injuries involve a child failing to get proper oxygen. This can occur while the baby is in the womb or during birth.
Many times, it is the job of health care professionals to look for and address potential birth injuries. Failure to do so can result in serious injuries that will impact a child for life, including:
- Shoulder dystocia/Erb’s palsy
- Hypoxic-Ischemic Encephalopathy
- Cerebral palsy
- Brain damage
