Birth Injury Lawyers Philadelphia
Birth injury usually results from complications during delivery, although in some cases, medical malpractice is involved. An infant’s brain tissue can easily be injured as the skull is very soft at birth. Also, a lack of oxygen (asphyxia) can cause brain injury. For these reasons, special care is necessary on the part of doctors, nurses and hospital staff.
However, with the cost-cutting measures of insurance companies with regard to issues such as trying to cut the length and cost of hospital stays for new mothers, often the quality of care is not legally sufficient, and the result is disastrous. Injuries that should have never occurred frequently happen during childbirth and while in the hospital. If your child has suffered brain injury or damage, Erbs Palsy, Cerebral Palsy, Down’s Syndrome, Spina Bifida, motor function damage and even wrongful death, it may be the cause of a doctor or hospital staff negligence or medical malpractice.
