Reasons to Call Crandall & Pera Law, Part Two

(For more information, please see Part One of this video series)

There are many reasons to call Crandall and Pera after the delivery of your child: If your child is ever diagnosed with cerebral palsy, or has increased tone in their legs and arms. Or, if they’ve suffered what’s called a brachial plexus injury, which is a nerve injury to one of their arms, or a broken clavicle, which is in your shoulder.

And finally, if you’ve suffered a still birth death, if your child has unfortunately died, either just before deliver, during delivery, or immediately after delivery – please call us, so we can look at the medical records to get you and your family answers.

What you should know about delivery and post-partum negligence

When people think of “birth injuries,” they often mistake injuries caused by trauma with birth defects. Birth defects are genetic abnormalities; they’re no one’s fault. But a birth injury could be the result of medical negligence, and a serious birth injury may require a life time of care.

Sometimes, these injuries occur during the labor and delivery process. Sometimes, they are caused by post-partum negligence, which occurs after the baby has been delivered. Failure to monitor a baby with a medical condition, like jaundice, could be an act of negligence; so could failing to address preeclampsia in a new mother. When nurses and doctors don’t uphold their duty of care to you, you may be able to hold them liable for your injuries.
