Did Your Child Suffer an Injury at Birth?
Our San Francisco Birth Injury Attorneys Help Families Recover
Having a baby is supposed to be a source of joy, not concern and worry. However, when babies are injured during labor and delivery, parents need comfort and assistance. They want information about their options so they can provide their child with the best possible care and medical treatment. When the injury was caused by medical negligence, they want to know whether they have legal remedies.
At the law firm of Mary Alexander & Associates, P.C. our San Francisco birth injury attorneys help parents whose babies suffered birth injuries caused by medical negligence. Our Bay Area birth injury law firm can help them obtain the resources children need to flourish as much as possible in the circumstances. We consult with experts to build strong cases for our clients and their injured infants. Our extensive network of specialists includes pediatricians, neonatologists, obstetricians and others who can help us determine how the injury occurred and identify the responsible party.
What Are Common Examples of Birth Injuries?
Our San Francisco birth injury lawyers represent clients whose babies suffered injuries during birth such as:
- Cerebral palsy (including ataxic, athetoid and spastic types of this condition)
- Brain injury because of oxygen deficiency to the fetus
- Anoxic encephalopathy
- Shoulder dystocia
- Brachial plexus injury
- Undiagnosed jaundice
Health conditions such as these can be the result of failure to monitor either the mother or the baby, failure to perform a C-section, injuries during delivery, misuse of instruments, improper prenatal care and improper follow-up after the birth. When babies are hurt or die because of negligence during birth, our lawyers can help hold the right parties responsible. We understand that no amount of money can cure a parent’s grief, but we also know how important it is to hold accountable parties responsible for the tragedy.
