Philadelphia Birth Injury Lawyers
Childbirth can be a painful and difficult experience even in ideal circumstances. Parents choose to go through it because they know at the end they will be able to enjoy their reward: a healthy new addition to the family. Unfortunately, the story is not always this simple or ideal. For some families, childbirth is only the beginning of a long string of medical issues.
A newborn’s medical problems can be caused by many factors, from genetics to the mother’s condition during pregnancy. Sometimes it is caused by a simple and wholly avoidable mistake on the part of the doctor or OBGYN staff. When this occurs, Philadelphia birth injury attorneys Lowenthal & Abrams, P.C., work hard to hold the negligent parties responsible.
It is hard to imagine something more unjust than a newborn being hurt by another party’s reckless behavior. Sadly, this is what happens to thousands of infants every year. Some of the more common kinds of birth injury include:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Erb’s Palsy
- Facial Paralysis
- Brain and Spinal Damage
- Post-Natal Infections
- Shaken Baby Syndrome
The consequences of these injuries can be severe for the child and his or her family. They can cause medical complications that are costly and difficult to treat, permanent impairments, and can even be fatal. If your child has suffered one of these injuries due to an avoidable mistake, a Philadelphia birth injury attorney can help you decide whether you have grounds for a suit.
