Springfield Birth Injury Lawyers
During childbirth, the doctors who deliver newborn babies have a great
responsibility. Aside from being accountable for the mothers’ wellbeing,
doctors are also responsible for the babies’ wellbeing. Unfortunately,
some doctors’ negligence may actually harm babies during birth.
Birth injuries can leave babies with permanent injuries that significantly
alter their lives. If your baby suffered preventable harm during childbirth
because of a doctor’s negligence, contact the Springfield birth
injury attorneys at Strong-Garner-Bauer P.C. today at (417) 855-2022.
Common Birth Injuries
Babies are fragile beings, so they must be delivered and handled with great
care both during and after birth. When doctors fail to provide a reasonable
standard of care, babies may suffer injuries that lead to:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Erb’s Palsy
- Facial Paralysis
- Brain and Spinal Damage
- Post-Natal Infections
- Shaken Baby Syndrome
Many of these injuries are permanent, and some may even be life-threatening.
While some of these injuries may heal, this usually will not happen without
surgery or rehabilitation, which can place a great strain both physically
on the baby and financially on the parents.
Parents of babies who suffered serious, preventable birth injuries should
consult with a Springfield medical malpractice attorney to learn if they
may be eligible to receive financial compensation from the delivering doctor.
