Pottsville Birth Injury Lawyer
Helping families like yours for over 60 years.
The birth of a child should be a joyous occasion, but unfortunately, things can go wrong during the delivery process. When a birth injury occurs, it can be a devastating experience for both the child and the family. At The Law Offices of Anthony Urban, we understand the pain and suffering that can result from a birth injury, and we are here to help.
Common Types of Birth Injuries
One of the most common types of birth injuries is cerebral palsy, which can be caused by oxygen deprivation during labor and delivery. This can occur when a doctor fails to recognize signs of fetal distress or delays in performing an emergency c-section. If your child has been diagnosed with cerebral palsy or any other birth injury, it is important to contact an experienced attorney who can help you understand your legal rights.
