Why you need a personal injury attorney for your birth injury case

Birth injury cases can be complex and require a deep understanding of both medical and legal issues. With the help of attorney Vincent Hughes, you can be confident the case will be handled with professionalism, competence, personalized support, and compassionate care from start to finish. 

Types of birth injuries

Birth injuries can occur during labor and delivery, ranging from minor injuries to lifelong disabilities. Some common types of birth injuries include:

Erb's palsy

A condition that occurs when the brachial plexus (the network of nerves in the shoulder) is damaged during birth. Symptoms may include weakness or paralysis in the arm, hand, or fingers.

Cerebral palsy

A neurological disorder that affects movement and posture. It is caused by damage to the brain before, during, or shortly after birth.

Brachial plexus injuries

Injuries to the brachial plexus can occur during birth, leading to muscle weakness or paralysis in the affected area.

Facial nerve injuries

Damage to the facial nerve during birth can cause problems with facial expression, speech, and other functions.

Brain damage

Oxygen deprivation, trauma, or infection during birth can cause brain damage, leading to developmental delays, intellectual disabilities, or other problems.

Hypoxia (lack of oxygen to the brain)

A lack of oxygen during birth can cause many problems, including brain damage, cerebral palsy, and developmental delays.

Shoulder dystocia

A condition in which the baby's shoulder becomes stuck during delivery. This injury can cause nerve damage, fractures, and other injuries.

Bone Fractures

Fractures can occur during difficult deliveries, particularly if forceps or vacuum extractors are used. Common fractures include collarbone fractures and fractures to the arm or leg bones.
