Compassionate Advocacy After A Birth Injury
Birth injuries are sudden and unexpected tragedies that can permanently harm a newborn baby. When you enter the hospital to deliver your baby, you should be able to depend on the care your medical team provides. If your family’s life gets turned upside down due to negligent or reckless care, you may be able to pursue damages for medical malpractice. At Hallberg Law, P.A., we understand the physical and emotional trauma that these injuries have both on parents and the baby. We will partner with you to pursue the full extent of damages that you and your family deserve.
Our firm, headed by leading attorney Mark Hallberg, confronts negligence and error to secure rightful compensation for families impacted by birth injuries. Below we explain some of the most common sources of birth injuries and how they can impact a newborn’s start in life.
A lengthy delivery can deprive a baby of oxygen, causing mild to severe brain damage. Cerebral palsy is one of many complications that stems from a lack of oxygen at birth. Comprehensive prenatal care can proactively detect situations that indicate oxygen deprivation may be likely.
The misuse of tools that assist birth such as vacuum extractors and forceps can lead to cuts and nerve damage in the brachial plexus, an area that connects the spinal cord to the shoulder, arm and hand. Broken bones can also result from excessive force used during delivery.
Misdiagnosis And Incorrect Treatment
Misdiagnosis of some medical conditions in newborns can mean delays in treatment that result in lasting damage to the baby’s health and development. For example, inadequate treatment of jaundice can lead to brain damage from a condition called kernicterus.
