Birth Injuries Caused by Medical Malpractice

Giving birth is typically a happy and emotional event. Yet, on occasion, the happiness can turn to anguish when an infant is injured by a physician's or nurse's carelessness. At Cross & Bennett LLC, we help parents bring medical malpractice claims against physicians, obstetricians and midwives.

If your child has suffered a birth injury, contact our Colorado birth injury attorneys by calling 1 719-428-3327 or by sending us an e-mail.

Understanding Birth Injuries

Birth injuries can lead to lifelong disability, cerebral palsy and death. We have experience handling birth injury claims involving injuries to infants, such as:

  • Brachial plexus injuries, including Erb's Palsy, caused by failure to properly manage shoulder dystocia
  • Cerebral palsy, including spastic cerebral palsy, ataxic cerebral palsy, athetoid cerebral palsy and mixed cerebral palsy
  • Brain damage/brain injury caused by oxygen deficiency (hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy)
  • Injuries caused by failure to diagnose medical conditions in utero

Our lawyers also bring medical malpractice claims for mothers injured during childbirth. Injuries to mothers can include serious infections, placental abruptions, uterine ruptures and death.

Who Is Responsible for the Costs of Birth Injuries?

Serious injuries to infants can lead to a lifetime of care and extensive medical bills. In order to help your child reach his or her full potential, you may need to pay for therapy, physical therapy, lifelong nursing care, surgeries, mobility aids, electronic devices, medication and other care. When we bring medical malpractice claims for our clients, we do not only look at the immediate picture; we see the whole picture. We will work hard to recover the compensation you will need to help your child throughout his or her life.
