Relief For Children And Parents After Birth Injuries
The birth of a baby is nearly always a time of celebration. When something goes wrong during prenatal care, labor, delivery or postnatal care and causes harm to the baby, the impact on the newborn and the parents can be devastating. Long-lasting disabilities such as the following may leave the child disadvantaged for years to come:
- Cerebral palsy caused by deprivation of oxygen during labor and delivery
- Shoulder dystocia caused by blockage of the baby’s torso in the birth canal
- Brain damage and a condition called kernicterus caused by untreated jaundice
The repercussions of a birth injury may not be evident until later stages of development. As soon as parents suspect that medical errors might have been responsible, it is important to consult with an attorney promptly. In some cases, awareness does not come about until a child starts school and learning disabilities are diagnosed. Attorney Steve Foley offers help and investigations for families grappling with the effects of birth injuries at any stage of development.
