The Tragic Consequences Of Birth Injuries And Trauma
The birth of a child is one of life’s most meaningful steps. As parents-to-be, you envision a bright future for your son or daughter. That vision can come crashing down when something goes wrong.
Despite advances in modern medicine, things do go wrong during childbirth. Approximately five to seven birth injuries occur out of every 1,000 deliveries in the United States. Far too often, these injuries are the result of medical negligence. The tragic consequences of birth trauma can mean a whole different life for your newborn — one that might be burdened with physical or cognitive disabilities.
At The Law Office of Robert H. Kleinschmidt, P.C., in Scottsdale, we work hard to help hold negligent medical professionals accountable and to help you recover the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled.
Making Sense Of What Happened
Perhaps you have received the shattering diagnosis that your child has cerebral palsy. Maybe your newborn had low Apgar scores, suffered seizures or has displayed other alarming indications of oxygen deprivation (birth asphyxia/hypoxia). Or perhaps you are struggling to make sense of what happened after the unspeakably difficult loss of a child.
An investigation may reveal troubling medical oversights such as:
- Errors in fetal monitoring
- Failure to diagnose or properly care for a high-risk pregnancy
- Negligence in performing assisted births (forceps and vacuum deliveries)
Whatever your situation, you deserve answers, accountability and the financial means to piece your life back together.
