Birth Injury Lawyers in Philadelphia

Seek the Help You Need to Care for Your Child After a Preventable Injury

The birth of a child should only be a time of joy for a growing family, but when medical professionals are careless or negligent, mistakes made can result in lifelong harm. A birth injury results from improper care during or immediately after the birthing process, such as failure to identify problems and plan accordingly or incorrect use of equipment such as forceps during labor. These injuries can be relatively mild, such as scratches or minor fractures, but are often serious injuries which can have repercussions well into the child’s adult life.

In many cases, such injuries come about as a result of the negligence of medical personnel, difficult labor and other medical conditions. Proper medical care and assistance are a right every patient and newborn baby is entitled to. Any action taken irresponsibly or carelessly that result in any form of birth injury amounts to medical malpractice. At Ginsburg & Associates Trial Lawyers, our team of Philadelphia birth injury attorneys is prepared to fight for you and your child. We proudly serve clients in both Philadelphia and New Jersey.

Types of Birth Injuries

There are many types of birth injuries that a child could sustain during delivery. Using forceps in assisted deliveries, for example, can leave bruising or fractures on the baby’s skull, or even injure the nerves in the skull resulting in facial paralysis.

Common birth injuries include:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Erb’s Palsy
  • Brachial Plexus

Cerebral palsy is a disability which causes speech and mobility impairment, sometimes to a severe degree, and Erb’s palsy is the loss of sensation and movement in the arms and legs. Brachial plexus injuries during birth mean an inability to flex the arms.

Such compensation can only be acquired after a proper presentation and argument of a victim’s case in court. At Ginsburg & Associates Trial Lawyers, this is the driving goal: fair compensation.
