Mobile Medical Malpractice Attorney Holding the Medical Community Accountable for Birth Injuries

Birth injuries caused by a doctor’s negligence or incompetence, or other hospital errors, rank among the most tragic and egregious types of personal injury. A birth injury can be extremely traumatic and in some cases lead to life-long disabilities, challenges and expenses. At the Law Office of J. Allan Brown, L.L.C., we take birth injury cases very seriously and fight to make sure the responsible parties are held accountable and that our clients receive the utmost in care and compensation that they need and deserve.

Birth injury causes and duties of doctors

While a birth injury may be caused by the negligence of another in a number of different ways, including automobile or trucking accidents, a slip and fall on dangerous premises, or pharmaceutical errors or dangerous drugs, most negligent birth injuries occur due to medical malpractice during pregnancy, labor or delivery. Common medical mistakes causing birth injuries include:

  • Failing to monitor fetal health and maternal health during pregnancy
  • Failing to provide genetic counseling when family history or other testing indicates it is warranted
  • Failing to account for a large baby, a long pregnancy or long period of labor
  • Improper use of an epidural
  • Improper use of Pitocin to induce labor
  • Failure to provide a timely c-section
  • Mishandling of the infant during delivery, such as the improper use of forceps or vacuum extractors

Birth injuries may be caused not only by medical mistakes on the part of the obstetrician, but also due to medical errors performed by nurses, anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists and others responsible for the safe delivery of the child. Even the hospital itself may be liable for the negligence of its employees or for failing to provide appropriate procedures and supervision. Because birth injuries may be caused by so many different parties in so many different ways, these cases can be challenging and complex. J. Allen Brown is an experienced trial attorney who can help obtain compensation in the most difficult birth injury cases, including those involving:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Erb’s Palsy
  • Facial Paralysis
  • Clavicle Fracture
  • Peritonitis
  • Pneumonitis
  • Brain Damage
