MEDICAL MALPRACTICE AND BIRTH INJURIES
A birth injury is defined as damage sustained during the birthing process. Most often, these injuries occur during the infant’s passage through the birth canal, and many infants sustain minor trauma even in a typical delivery. Some bruising is relatively normal, as the passage through the birth canal is difficult. However, there are times when an infant will suffer muscle or nerve damage and serious injury because of a mistake or error on the part of a doctor or other medical professional.
If your baby suffered a serious birth injury as the result of medical malpractice, we believe that you have the right to take legal action. A birth injury attorney at PARRIS Law can meet with you to discuss your unique case and your options in filing a claim or lawsuit to recover the financial compensation you need for your child’s medical care.

Obstetricians, nurses, and all other professionals in the field of medicine have a legal obligation to provide a standard level of care and treatment to patients. When a doctor fails to provide the appropriate level of care to a mother and her baby during pregnancy or in the childbirth process, this can have disastrous consequences. A delayed cesarean section, medication error or misdiagnosis can lead to paralysis, Cerebral Palsy, mental retardation and, in some extreme cases, death.
