Helping the Families of Children Injured During Delivery
Brain injuries during childbirth can result in serious developmental delay and intellectual disabilities as well as physical challenges such as cerebral palsy and other conditions that impact a child's basic motor functions.
Many babies who suffer brain damage or head injuries during birth will live very long lives, but the cost of caring for these children can be astronomical. If your child suffered a brain injury as a result of medical negligence during delivery, you will need help obtaining the money required to provide adequate long-term care for your child.
That is where we come in. At Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, our child brain injury lawyers seek compensation for families whose children have suffered brain damage during labor and delivery. To schedule a free consultation to learn how we can help you get the compensation you need to care for your child, contact our office online or call 212-750-1200 or 1.888.4.TGLLAW.
Understanding How Brain Damage Occurs
Complications during labor and delivery such as infection, umbilical cord prolapse and placental abruption can cause oxygen deprivation. When a baby is deprived of oxygen or sustains other physical trauma while in utero or during delivery, serious brain damage can occur, including cerebral hemorrhages, subdural hemorrhages, skull fractures and damage that can lead to brain damage and cerebral palsy.
Doctors and other health care providers are expected to monitor oxygen flow during labor and delivery and can be held accountable if they do not. If your child has suffered brain damage or a head injury because your obstetrician, gynecologist or nurse negligently failed to prevent complications during the birth process, you may have a medical negligence claim.
