Atlanta Birth Injury Lawyers

Did Your Child Suffer a Birth Injury as a Result of Medical Negligence?

Birth injuries can cast a long, challenging shadow over one of life’s most joyful moments. The aftermath extends beyond immediate medical concerns, permeating every facet of a family’s life, transforming the joyous journey of parenthood into a path fraught with worry, confusion, and costly medical expenses. The emotional weight can feel overwhelming, and the future often appears uncertain.

We understand the profound emotional, physical, and financial impact these cases have on families, which is why our Atlanta birth injury attorneys are so passionate about providing tenacious legal representation.

While we understand that no amount of money can truly compensate for the pain and distress caused by a birth injury, securing adequate financial compensation for damages like medical bills, pain and suffering, and emotional distress can provide help to cover any costs related to your child’s injury.

Common Types of Birth Injuries

Birth is a delicate process, and when complications arise, the consequences can be devastating. Serious birth injuries can have life-altering implications, potentially impacting a child’s development and quality of life forever. In these cases, it is common for a child’s family to bear a heavy emotional and financial burden.

Below are some examples of serious birth injuries:

  • Head trauma: This can occur due to excessive force during delivery or improper use of birthing tools. The repercussions can range from minor bruising to severe brain damage.
  • Cerebral palsy: A condition resulting from brain damage before, during, or shortly after birth, affecting muscle coordination and movement.
  • Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE): Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, or "HIE," is a type of birth injury that occurs when an infant’s brain is deprived of oxygen. 
  • Erb’s palsy: This involves damage to the nerves in the baby’s upper arm, leading to weakness or even paralysis in the affected limb.
  • Bruises/lacerations: While some minor bruising is common during birth, severe or extensive bruising or lacerations can signal a more serious issue.
  • Injuries from improper use of forceps: If used incorrectly, forceps can cause significant injury to the baby, including skull fractures, facial palsy, or brain damage.
  • Injuries from improper use of vacuum assist: Incorrect use of vacuum extraction can lead to a range of injuries, from scalp wounds to more serious conditions like intracranial hemorrhage.

In the most extreme cases, birth injuries can lead to death.
