Serving Families After A Tragic Birth Injury

It is a terrible tragedy for a parent to lose a child or to see a child suffer serious illnesses or injuries in the birthing process.

We represent clients in birth injury claims involving:

  • Lack of oxygen to the child during birth causing anoxic brain injury and other health issues
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb's palsy
  • Fetal distress caused by compression of the umbilical cord, choking on the umbilical cord or getting stuck in the birth canal
  • Failure to perform timely cesarean section surgery
  • Misuse of forceps, vacuums and other invasive equipment
  • Medication errors during birth
  • Errors by doctors, nurses and anesthesiologists
  • Wrongful death

Like any type of medical malpractice claim, birth injury litigation is difficult to win. To have a successful claim, you have to prove that the injuries suffered were caused by some negligence or mistake by the doctor or nurse on the scene, which requires knowledge and experience regarding the legal requirements and medical nuances involved.

At Friedman Schuman, we have handled many of these cases successfully. Our lawyers can give you an accurate case assessment and fight for the compensation you deserve.
