Birth Injuries

Birth injuries can occur before, during and after childbirth and affect the child, mother or both. In order to prevent birth injuries, it is important for obstetricians and other medical staff to continuously monitor the mother and child. When they fail to do so, serious birth injuries can result.

Many serious birth injuries are the result of medical malpractice. Birth injuries can occur during delayed birth, when labor is allowed to continue too long. Oxygen deprivation is a major cause of injury to the brain during birth. Many babies suffer birth injuries because of malpractice at the hands of medical staff who should know better, or aren’t sure what is happening at a specific time.

Some birth injuries are easily seen and identified, such as bruises, lacerations and broken bones due to mishandling of forceps or vacuum extraction. Other birth injuries are more difficult to see and may be revealed over time. In any case, and regardless of how much time may have gone by, it is important to see an attorney with experience in birth injury law who can file a claim on behalf of the victims of medical malpractice.

In addition to filing a medical malpractice or birth injury claim to recover compensation for injuries and other damages, medical malpractice victims working with an experienced birth injury law firm, such as Eisenberg, Rothweiler, Winkler, Eisenberg & Jeck, P.C., can also shed light on a physician or hospital’s negligent malpractice to help prevent more innocent people from becoming victims as well. When accusations of malpractice arise and are reported, there is an investigation by the State Board of Medicine. If it is found that malpractice has occurred, disciplinary action will be taken that could even result in the revocation of a physician’s license to practice medicine.
