Claims for Injuries from Birth Incidents

Learning that your child has suffered an injury during labor or delivery can be one of the most emotionally devastating experiences you will ever experience. In addition to the immediate pain and suffering of the injury, your child may be facing a future of partial or total disability, and he or she may never be fully self-sufficient or able to enjoy all that life has to offer.

To make matters worse, your child may require:

  • Ongoing rehabilitative treatment
  • Medical procedures
  • Continuing nursing care
  • Equipment such as a wheelchair or respirator

Fortunately, you may be able to secure financial compensation for all of these costs so that you can afford everything your child needs and to provide for his or her future. Speak with our Columbia personal injury lawyer to find out how we can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.

Recognizing Signs of a Birth Injury

A birth injury may be immediately apparent at the time of the injury, or the presentation of the injury may be delayed over a course of days, weeks, months, or even years. Erb's palsy will typically be evident relatively early, manifesting itself through apparent weakness or even paralysis in one of the baby's arms.

Cerebral palsy and other conditions caused by oxygen deprivation and brain injury may not be noticed until the child begins to display developmental delays in cognitive ability or motor skills. In either case, it is advisable to consult with a Columbia birth injury attorney as early as possible so that you can take appropriate legal action before the statute of limitations runs out.
