On Your Side

The birth of a child is typically the most wonderful time in a parent’s life. However, sometimes complications can arise during pregnancy and delivery, possibly resulting in an injury to the baby. Typically, these types of situations can be categorized as avoidable harm, which is why it is imperative to understand the legal rights of both the baby and the parent.

With more than 60 years of legal experience, our Schuylkill County birth injury lawyers have the comprehensive understanding of state laws and court proceedings in order to help you navigate through the potential complexities of your case.

Types of Birth Injury Cases

Birth injures can occur for a plethora of reasons. In the instances in which birth injuries are caused by the negligence and careless mistakes of healthcare providers, such as failing to recognize fetal positioning, umbilical cord issues, fetal distress, or delaying caesarean section (C-section) procedure, you may be eligible to hold the responsible party legally liable for their actions.

These mistakes can result in a lack of oxygen to a baby’s brain leading to permanent physical and/or mental disabilities. Our Schuylkill County birth injury attorneys, along with a team of experts, are capable of helping families who have suffered birth injuries caused by medical mistakes.

  • Cerebral palsy
