Birth Injuries, also referred to as birthing or pregnancy errors, can often be long-term or permanent injuries for a child, and in some cases even result in the death of the child.

When a birth injury lawsuit is brought against a doctor, nurse, hospital, or other healthcare provider, it is often due to the carelessness, intentional acts, or incompetence of the doctor, nurse, or other healthcare worker.

Birth injuries caused during the birth or before the birth has occurred, and sometimes, during the pregnancy. The cause of the birth injury does not have to be considered a "criminal act" for civil litigation to be sought against the at fault party and/or organization.

Types of Birth Injuries may include, but are not limited to:

  • Shoulder dystocia;
  • Brachial plexus injuries ;
  • Breech birth complications ;
  • Cerebral palsy and brain damage;
  • Erbs or Klumpke palsy;

  • Fetal death occurring before or during birth;
  • Death or trauma related to incorrect dosage of medicine ;
