Louisville Birth Injury

Dedicated Louisville Birth Injury Attorneys Seek Justice for Families

Our Louisville birth injury attorneys protect your child’s future

Birth injuries can impact children for the rest of their lives. While technologies such as advanced ultrasound machines and birth monitoring equipment have decreased the likelihood of severe trauma, birth injuries still occur every day in hospitals across the country. Even though doctors are trained to act appropriately in times of distress during labor and delivery, mistakes happen.  Babies and their mothers may suffer a variety of injuries, from broken bones to brain damage, when something goes wrong during the delivery process.

If your child has suffered a birth injury, consult with Crandall & Pera Law’s birth injury attorneys in Louisville to discuss your case. Our dedicated team of lawyers and medical professionals evaluate every angle of your claim to hold all negligent parties responsible. As experienced medical malpractice attorneys, the team at Crandall & Pera Law works to help you protect your child’s future, so any medical care he or she needs is accessible by helping you obtain compensation to cover all costs.

Common birth injuries in Louisville

There are dozens of possible birth injuries. While an infant may recover from those injuries that are less severe, others may require treatment for the entire life of the affected child, including:

  • Head and brain injuries
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Brachial plexus injuries
  • Klumpe’s palsy
  • Nerve injuries
  • Perinatal axphyxia
  • Bone Injury
  • Injury to Soft Tissues and Skin

If your child has experienced any kind of birth injury, you should consult with an experienced Louisville birth injury attorney. Crandall & Pera Law has a team of experienced medical malpractice attorneys in the state. Your lawyer will be dedicated to helping you and your family get the justice and compensation deserved.

Preventing birth injuries

Doctors and medical staff can use many methods to prevent and stop birth injuries from occurring:

  • C-section. Rather than a vaginal delivery, a C-section can be scheduled if the fetus is too large, the birth canal is too small or the fetus is in an abnormal position for delivery.
  • Proper Use of Instruments. If there are issues getting the baby out of the birth canal, your OB/GYN may use a vacuum extractor or forceps.
  • Fetal Monitoring. Your care team should be consistently monitoring the fetus during labor for abnormalities with heartbeat and breathing, and should recognize signs of distress.
  • Prenatal Care. Problems often begin during pregnancy and your OB/GYN must adequately address any warning signs. Additionally, you and the baby should receive proper postpartum care as well.
  • Treating Infections. If the mother has an infection that could be passed along to the child, health care providers should administer the proper antibiotics.

If health care professionals fail to take these precautions or make an error in preventing injury, contact a Louisville birth injury lawyer at Crandall & Pera Law right away to learn more about your legal rights.
