Get the Justice Your Family Deserves

Springfield Birth Injury Lawyers

Call (417) 855-2022 to Get Justice for Your Baby

The doctors who deliver newborn babies have a great responsibility. Aside from being accountable for the mother's well-being, doctors are also responsible for the baby's well-being. 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.

Proving Doctor Negligence in Your Birth Injury Case

Pregnancy, labor, and delivery are complicated processes and a lot can go wrong, even if the doctor and attending medical staff provide proper treatment, so it may not be immediately evident that a birth injury occurred.

The first indication that medical negligence may have occurred is if your baby has suffered these common birth injuries:

  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Erb’s Palsy
  • Cephalohematoma
  • Facial Paralysis
  • Brain and Spinal Damage
  • Postnatal Infections

The second indication is if you or your birth partner observed any of the following during your prenatal care or the labor and delivery:

  • Doctor or nurse failed to monitor baby's vital signs
  • Doctor failed to diagnose or treat preeclampsia
  • Doctor failed to order a timely C-section
  • Doctor failed to treat maternal infection that harmed the baby
  • Doctor improperly used forceps or vacuum extractor
  • Doctor improperly treated shoulder dystocia

Proving that your doctor, nursing, or other attending healthcare provider caused your child's birth injury can be exceedingly difficult. It involves reviewing medical records, interviewing witnesses, and conferring with health experts. The Springfield birth injury lawyers at Strong Bauer Garner have decades of experience representing birth injury claims and the resources necessary to prove that negligence occurred.

Recovering the Compensation Your Child Deserves

Many birth injuries are permanent and some may even be life-threatening. While some of these injuries 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.

The average cost for the treatment and lifetime care of a child who suffers a birth injury, such as cerebral palsy, can be upwards of $1 million dollars. This is an unfathomable amount of money that no parent should be expected to pay on their own, especially of the birth injury was caused by a health care professional's negligence.

  • Emergency medical costs and hospital bills

  • Special needs education and in-home care
