Types of Birth Injuries in Atlanta
Atlanta Birth Injury Attorney
The birth of a child is a joyful event, but also one which requires the highest level of care and precaution to protect the baby from harm. The body of a newborn is fragile and highly susceptible to damage, and birth injuries carry the potential for causing lifelong health complications or disability. If your child has suffered any type of injury during birth, you may be entitled to recover full monetary compensation for the present and future costs of the injury, both in terms of the financial expense for treatment and care, and for pain and suffering. Retaining an
Atlanta medical malpractice attorney to represent you in a
medical malpractice claim against the obstetrician, a nurse or another healthcare practitioner will greatly increase your chances of success.

An Atlanta Birth Injury Lawyer Will Help
We help families pursue damages for all types of birth injuries, from spinal cord injuries which can lead to
paraplegia & quadriplegia to
brain injuries such as
hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE),
cerebral palsy. Certain injuries are immediately apparent at the time of birth, but others may not manifest for weeks, months or years after the incident. It is sometimes difficult to
detect a birth injury, but if you have noticed
delays in development or if your child has been diagnosed with
mental retardation, it may be possible to trace the condition back to a birth trauma. Whether your child suffers from a
brachial plexus injury such as
Erb's palsy or from
chemical birth defects,
microcephaly or any other type of injury, fill out our
case evaluation form and call us today.
