Birth Injuries

Giving birth to a beautiful baby is supposed to be a wonderful event in the lives of the parents.

Unfortunately, there are times when babies are born with cerebral palsy, suffer brain damage, or other injuries because of negligence that takes place during prenatal care, labor, or delivery. In addition, the delivery room can be the scene of personal injuries because of careless procedures that neglect the health of the mother.

Although most babies are born in a hospital surrounded by medical professionals, a birth injury can happen at almost any point during labor and delivery. These injuries can be the result of medical negligence or error. A baby with a birth injury may recover fully and quickly or may suffer lifelong physical and/or mental limitations that can be devastating.

Thankfully, these kinds of injuries do not occur often. However, when a birth defect or birth trauma does happen, Schimmerling Law Offices can assist you in evaluating your claim.  Schimmerling Law Offices stands ready to help parents and children recover from negligent mistakes made during the birthing process.
