Birth Injury Lawyers

Birth injury lawyers specializes in medical malpractice cases concerning the birthing of a baby. Most qualified birth injury lawyers realize that time is of the essence in these cases. Many grieving couples make the mistake of contacting a birth injury lawyer after much time has passed.

This is to be understood. However, from the perspective of the birth injury lawyer, critical documents need to be gathered and witnesses need to be deposed as soon as possible after the incident has occurred.

Most couples who are grieving do not want to face the issue of money when their newborn has been injured. But, what they need to realize is that bills concerning their child's health and well being, over the long haul, may be financially devastating. A birth injury lawyer needs to be consulted soon so that witnesses may be found, their memories are fresh and they can be deposed before collaborating with other witnesses. Important documents also need to be gathered sooner rather than later before they become lost or misplaced over time.

In order to pick a qualified birth injury lawyer, one must pick their attorney based upon knowledge, experience, success rate and rapport. A birth injury lawyer must be knowledgeable in the common and not so common medical malpractice and negligence problems that can occur during birth. These problems include excessive force being applied during delivery, delays in performing a necessary C-section, lack of oxygen to the brain and failure to properly anticipate the size of a child, causing a turbulent delivery.

Some of the common birth injuries that can occur are:

1. Brain Injury
2. Cerebral Palsy
3. Spastic Cerebral Palsy
4. Athetoid Cerebral Palsy
5. Ataxic Cerebral Palsy
6. Erb's Palsy
7. Klumpke's Palsy
8. Brachial Plexus Paralysis
9. Horner's Syndrome
10. Group-B Strep
11. Shoulder dystocia
12. Lack of oxygen to the brain
       a. Cardiac arrhythmia
       b. Bradycardia
       c. Tachycardia
13. Fractures of the collarbone
14. Spinal cord trauma

When investigating a birth injury lawyer for possible representation, make sure you ask about their trial experience, success rate at trial and the anticipated results in your case. In addition, make sure that you have a good rapport with your birth injury lawyer since you'll be dealing with this person quite a bit over time. Most birth injury lawyers work on contingency, but make sure that this is verified right up front. Leave room for your grief during this process and seek support from family and friends to help smooth out the bumps in the road.
