Why Is An Attorney Necessary For These Cases?

An attorney will be necessary to pursue a birth injury medical malpractice case. With these incidents, you can be certain that the medical provider and their insurer will have their own legal team ready to defend them.

Your attorney will have the resources to investigate what happened. This includes obtaining all medical records related to the incident, the history of the healthcare professional or agency involved, and more. Your attorney will also work with trusted medical professionals to calculate the total damages and expected lifelong consequences caused by the birth injury.

These cases often involve intense negotiations by both sides, which will need to be skillfully handled by your attorney.

What Are The Most Common Birth Injuries?

Pregnancy complications are not uncommon, but they should never be caused by the careless or negligent actions of a healthcare professional. Some of the most common birth injuries that are caused by a negligent provider include:

  • bone fractures
  • meconium aspiration
  • fetal oxygen deprivation
  • brain bleeds
  • nerve damage
  • and more

A lack of oxygen to a baby’s brain can lead to cerebral palsy, a lifelong condition marked by disabilities that require permanent care for the child.

Birth injuries are often caused by improperly trained medical providers:

  • misuse of forceps or a vacuum device
  • failure to recognize maternal distress
  • failure to perform a C-section when indicated

The team at Cerussi & Gunn, P.C. serves those in all areas of the county whose children have sustained birth injuries, including the areas of Edison, Woodbridge, Old Bridge, Piscataway, New Brunswick, and Perth Amboy.
