Birth Injuries Attorney in Houston

Nothing can be harder for a parent to face than their child being born with a birth injury. Facing this can be devastating not only to the parents, but to the child’s future as well. Some parents may not even be aware that the condition their child was born with was due to a birth injury and caused by medical malpractice. Some common reasons for birth injuries stem from:

  • Medication Errors
  • Improper treatment during pregnancy
  • Improper use of forceps or vacuum
  • Delayed Cesarean section
  • Oxygen deprivation during delivery

Many birth injuries such as Cerebral Palsy, Erb’s Palsy and mental retardation can result from oxygen deprivation during the delivery. Failure of the medical staff to properly monitor the baby’s vital signs during the delivery can cause this. Mother’s who took medication during pregnancy that did not receive proper care by the treating physician can give birth to children with severe reactions to the medications, or birth defects as a result of them.

If you think your child suffered a birth injury due to negligence during your prenatal care or during your delivery, contact the personal injury attorneys at the Malaise Law Firm for information on what steps need to be taken to pursue a claim on your child’s behalf.
