Hinesville Birth Injury Lawyers

Many infants sustain minor injuries during childbirth, but these injuries usually heal without treatment. Unfortunately, sometimes newborns experience severe injuries and disabilities that affect them for the rest of their lives.

Sadly, some of these severe birth injuries are caused by medical negligence during childbirth. If your baby suffered a severe birth injury because of medical professionals' negligence you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other expenses.

Contact The Nye Law Group's Hinesville birth injury lawyers to review your claim. Our attorneys have many years of experience holding negligent medical professionals accountable and securing fair compensation for families affected by birth injuries. We offer a free initial consultation and we do not charge any fees unless we secure you compensation for your injuries.

Examples of Birth Injuries

Babies can sustain serious injuries during childbirth that affect their appearance, development and behavior, including:

  • Erb’s palsy
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Klumpke’s palsy
  • Brachial palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Anencephaly
  • Cleft palate or cleft lip

These injuries can be caused by negligent medical professionals who fail to monitor the mother and her baby and fail to respond to medical issues that arise during the birthing process. Examples of birth injury negligence include:

  • Improper use of forceps or vacuums - These tools can help with a particularly difficult delivery, but if medical professionals are not careful, they can cause oxygen deprivation and other severe injuries.
  • Failing to perform a cesarean section at the right time - Medical professionals must recognize when to do a cesarean section to prevent injury to the mother or her baby.
  • Failing to detect problems with the baby's oxygen supply - Medical professionals must be properly trained to detect any problems that can cause a lack of oxygen to the fetus, including a damaged placenta, infections or a tangled umbilical cord.
  • Not performing specialized tests - Testing can help medical professionals detect and respond to issues with the mother and the fetus.
  • Medication errors - Incorrectly administered anesthesia or labor-inducing drugs can put the life of the mother and baby at risk.

Some of these actions do not cause birth injuries, but they can make existing problems much worse. Either way, medical professionals are often at fault and should be held responsible for their medical malpractice.

A Hinesville birth injury lawyer can help you determine if you can file a claim for medical negligence and recover compensation for your baby's injuries.

Proving Birth Injury Negligence

In order to recover compensation in a birth injury case, your attorney must establish three things:

  • Medical professionals owed you and your baby a duty of care, meaning that they were legally obligated to perform within accepted medical standards during the delivery of the baby.
  • Doctors or other medical professionals breached their duty of care.
  • The breach of the duty of care was the main cause of harm to the mother or the baby.

Proving a breach of the duty of care can be complex and time-consuming, which is why you need an experienced team of Hinesville birth injury lawyers handling your claim.

The Nye Law Group's Hinesville birth injury lawyers will conduct an in-depth investigation of your claim to find out when negligence occurred. We have access to medical professionals and other expert witnesses who can help us build a solid case.

We have handled many birth injury cases, so our attorneys know how to uncover the truth when hospitals and medical facilities are not forthcoming with medical records and other information.

Compensation in Birth Injury Cases

Birth injuries can cause severe disabilities that require surgery, ongoing medical care, physical therapy and many other very expensive treatments. If the injury was caused by negligence, you could be entitled to compensation to cover these expenses, including:

  • Current and future medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Physical therapy
  • Lost wages for missed time at work
  • In-home health care expenses

While compensation cannot change what happened, it can help you and your family attempt to move forward and provide the best life possible for your severely injured child.
