In the U.S. each year, birth injuries occur in nearly seven out of every 1,000 births, often leaving the child with a lifetime disability and parents with endless medical bills.
Sadly, birth injuries sometimes are unavoidable. But often, they are preventable and occur as a direct result of medical malpractice or negligence on the part of medical professionals either during pregnancy, labor and delivery, or after a child is born.
In many cases, obstetrician malpractice occurs when an ObGyn fails to properly advise a patient of certain risks, doesn’t perform needed tests, or delays the delivery despite signs of fetal distress. Some other causes of birth injuries include:
Birth injuries can be caused by medical negligence on the part of any healthcare provider, including obstetricians, nurses, nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, family practitioners, anesthesiologists, pediatricians, neonatologists, paramedics, medical facilities, or hospitals.
Birth injury cases involving obstetric malpractice or negligence are highly complicated. That is why you need to find experienced birth injury attorneys who have a proven record of winning these complex cases.
There are numerous types of birth and neonatal injuries. Some of the most common include:

Suppose you have a gut feeling that something just didn’t go right during your pregnancy, labor and delivery, or your child’s birth. In that case, you must contact an experienced birth injury attorney to review your case and determine if medical malpractice or negligence occurred. If your child has suffered a birth injury due to the action or inaction of a medical professional, or if a doctor or nurse has violated the accepted standard of care, you may be entitled to compensation through a birth injury lawsuit.
While your child's birth injury may not be reversible, receiving the compensation you deserve can help ease the ongoing financial burdens of the medical bills that accumulate for your child's care. A birth injury attorney will know all the damages you can seek in your birth injury case.
The Philadelphia birth injury attorneys at Ross Feller Casey handle cases throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and beyond on a contingency basis. You will not pay a thing unless we recover compensation in your case, whether through a lawsuit or settlement.
You may still be able to file a birth injury claim even if the birth trauma occurred some time ago. But your time may be running out. As with all medical malpractice cases, there is a limit to the amount of time you have to file a birth injury claim. So, don't delay contacting a Philadelphia birth injury lawyer to review your case.
