In Los Angeles and throughout California, it's important to note that all birth injury lawyers are not equal.

As a parent, nothing is more heartbreaking than realizing that some form of negligence, whether medical malpractice or the irresponsible act of an obstetrician, anesthesiologist, or someone else in the medical profession, resulted in the suffering of your child. Perhaps you are suspicious that your child is not quite normal, but unsure of whether it was caused by a healthcare provider during your pregnancy or at the time of your child's birth. At The Justice Firm, our Los Angeles birth injury attorneys are diligent, focused, and aggressive. We will examine your case thoroughly in an effort to determine which party or parties may be held accountable for injuries which may be minor or as serious as Cerebral palsy.Common Birth Injuries in Orange County and Throughout California
You trust your obstetrician, nurses, and others in charge of your care to use their knowledge and experience to keep both you and your baby safe. Unfortunately, the unexpected happens on occasion. Your child may suffer birth trauma due to improper use of suction or forceps. Other causes of birth injuries include, but are not limited to:
- Lack of oxygen resulting in brain injury
- Delay in performing a caesarean section (C-section)
- Injury of the spinal cord
- Delay in diagnosing fetal distress
- Natural or vaginal birth following C-section birth which may result in brain damage, ruptured uterus, or even death
- Lung problems, bowel infection (necrotizing enterocolitis), or bleeding in the brain
It is an unfortunate fact that during the labor and delivery process, there are countless opportunities for trauma or birth injury to occur. However, doctors and medical staff know to anticipate any and all possibilities, and are thoroughly prepared to address any issues which may arise, whether expected or unexpected. If your doctors and other medical professionals have not anticipated and prepared for potential problems, it can end in devastation. The birth of a baby is one of the most precious moments in a parent's life; when the tragedy occurs due to medical negligence, the responsible parties must be held accountable.Dedicated and Aggressive Los Angeles Personal Injury Attorneys
