BIRTH INJURIES

New Haven Birth Injury Lawyer

Every parent wants their child to be born without complications and in perfect health. Unfortunately in some cases, the actions of an emergency or delivery room doctor may be to blame for injuries your child suffered at birth. Our legal team at the Bartlett Law Offices, P.C. understands the frustration, anger, and sadness you may be feeling regarding the birth injuries that your child has sustained. Our attorneys are committed to standing by you throughout your case, seeking compensation and justice for the losses your entire family has suffered due to the injured child.

Brain Injuries

Injuries to a child's brain may have an extensive impact on his or her entire life. Delivery room errors and doctor mistakes can lead to a infant sustaining severe brain injuries. Our firm is dedicated to helping you understand the injuries your child has suffered and investigating the circumstances surrounding the injury. The resulting conditions from a brain injury include slow physical and mental development and learning disabilities. Also, death can occur if the injury is extremely severe.

Cerebral Palsy

Brain damage during the birthing process is to blame for cerebral palsy. However, it is medical malpractice that sometimes leads to the brain damage. Cerebral palsy is a condition leaves a child unable to control movement and may result in behavioral issues, seizures, slow physical and intellectual development, and vision and hearing difficulties.

Hypoxia

The lack of oxygen to the brain and other tissues is called hypoxia. This is a condition that may be caused by a number of mistakes made by a doctor during the routine birth of a child. An extended period of hypoxia can lead to severe brain damage, developmental problems, and even death of the infant.

Fetal Death

With the proper care and attention, a pregnant woman can deliver a healthy infant. However, fetal death may occur if doctors fail to address and treat any medical conditions that the mother may have or display at any time throughout the pregnancy. Preeclampsia is one such condition that must be identified and treated in order to prevent fetal death and any other delivery room or birthing complication.

Shoulder Dystocia / Erb's Palsy

During birth, a infant's shoulders may get stuck behind the mother's pubic bone. This condition is called shoulder dystocia. Often, a doctor will attempt to remove the child, in some cases using too much force. This birth trauma while the shoulders are stuck leads to a condition known as Erb's Palsy. This is a type of palsy in which the nerves in the brachial plexus (in the arm) are damaged, causing limited use of the arm and sometimes paralysis.
