Birth Injury Attorney Helping Clients in Detroit
Having a child who is the victim of an OB-GYN or hospital error is difficult and life-altering for many families. Mistakes made before, during, or after birth – such as damage caused by medical instruments, a delayed cesarean section, or improper delivery – can often be the direct cause of a child’s injuries.
Birth injuries vary from being very minor to life-threatening. Some of the common types of birth injuries include:
- Fractured collar bone
- Fractured arm
- Cerebral palsy – a brain injury or disorder that is one of the most expensive disabilities to manage over the course of a person’s lifetime, with an average lifetime cost per person of approximately $1 million.
- Erb’s palsy (brachial plexus palsy) – a condition due to birth trauma that affects one or all of the five primary nerves that supply movement and feeling to an arm.
In these cases, investigations by a birth injury lawyer may be an important course of action for the grieving families. Seeking legal representation after a birth trauma can allow the family to focus on its medical and emotional recovery while the attorney investigates the circumstances surrounding the concerns of medical malpractice.
