Experienced Pennsylvania Birth Injury Attorneys Helping Families
A birth injury can change elation to anguish. It can lead to a lifetime of impaired function and ability for the infant as well as profound financial hardship for a family. In most cases, negligence on the part of doctors, anesthesiologists, nurses and other medical personnel is the primary cause of a birth injury. Of the approximately four million babies born each year in the United States, around seven in 1,000 will suffer a birth injury.
When Pennsylvania families have questions and are thinking about seeking damages to help pay for medical bills and other injury-related expenses, they look for experienced Philadelphia birth injury lawyers such as those at Cherry Injury Law. Their Pennsylvania birth injury lawyers have successfully represented families struggling with the heartbreak of birth injuries for well over two decades. They explain the applicable laws in plain language so that families can make informed decisions about the best course of action.
Birth injuries include a wide range of different medical conditions ranging from mild to serious and even fatal. Factors such as human error contribute to birth injuries and medical negligence is the most common cause of the following birth injuries:
- Mental retardation
- Cerebral palsy due to lack of oxygen during delivery
- Brachial plexus or nerve damage that can result in diminished growth and function of arms and hands
- Erb’s Palsy, which causes a baby’s arm to become weakened and/or paralyzed
- Bone fractures
- Brain damage
- Soft tissue injuries
- Many other birth injuries that could have been avoided if proper medical standards were applied
