Nothing is a greater moment of joy in your family’s life than welcoming a new child, and nothing is more tragic than a serious birth injury. Childbirth is not without risks, and we trust the specialized expertise of obstetric medical care providers to mitigate those risks.

Temporary birth injuries

Some birth injuries are temporary and can heal over time. These may include:

  • Bone fractures
  • Excessive facial bruising
  • Severely bruised scalp

But even temporary injuries can have a permanent impact on your family. Moreover, they may be a sign of more significant damage under the surface. Some of those injuries may lead to lifelong changes to how that child grows and develops, including:

  • Brain damage
  • Facial paralysis
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Brachial plexus
  • Erb's palsy

Depending on the nature of your child’s birth injury, he or she may need a lifetime of medical attention, including in-home care attendants. You may need to leave your job to devote yourself to caring for your child. The sheer impact of such an injury on your life can be completely overwhelming. We can help.
