Fighting For You In All Childbirth Injury Cases
Leading up to the birth of your child, you did everything necessary to ensure a healthy baby. Prenatal care, nutritious diet, regular exercise and avoidance of alcohol. But something still went wrong. Your infant sustained a birth injury at the hospital. The result is that your son or daughter may not have the typical childhood that you had envisioned. No baseball. No ballet. No swimming. Your child may not even have the ability to give you a hug.
Many risks exist in childbirth, and, sometimes, a childbirth injury occurs due to the negligence of the medical team. The result: Your infant may have a brain injury, broken bones or lacerations. All these injuries were preventable. If this happens, you need an experienced and understanding legal firm to assist you. Our team of lawyers at Bassi, Vreeland & Associates, P.C., in southwestern Pennsylvania fits that description. We have longtime roots in the community and understand that a birth trauma or birth injury can take a financial toll on a family. We will fight for you in securing the settlement you deserve.
Types Of Birth Injuries; Some Caused By Negligence
A birth injury is an unfortunate occurrence. Sometimes, it is serious enough to do immeasurable harm to your baby. In these situations, you and your family may find yourselves caring for a child who now has special needs. Along with the uncertainty, you are met with a heap of medical expenses.
Birth injuries shouldn’t happen, but they do. Here are some common birth injuries:
- Brain injuries due to lack of oxygen during birth may lead to your child experiencing chronic seizures or cerebral palsy.
- Nerve damage may lead to your child not being able to move his or her arms and hands.
- Broken bones may result from a physician pulling too hard on an infant.
- Cuts to the scalp may occur due to improper use of an extraction tool.
