Birth Injuries & Medical Negligence

The term "birth injury" refers to any physical trauma suffered by a baby during labor and delivery. Sometimes, these injuries are the result of natural circumstances. Prolonged labor, irregular birth position, premature delivery or a large infant increases the likelihood of physical trauma during birth. Many birth injuries are preventable, though. If a medical professional fails to manage the birth of your child properly, he / she could cause or aggravate a birth injury.

Some types of birth injury cases we handle:

  • Trauma caused by forceps
  • Vacuum extractor injuries
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Failure to perform a C-section

These are only a few examples of birth trauma that doctors, nurses, and careless hospital staff can cause. If you believe that a negligent medical professional is responsible your child's birth trauma, a St. Louis birth injury attorney from Walther/Zwibelman Law Associates can help.
