Birth Injury Lawyer Los Angeles

Birth Injury Attorney

A preventable birth injury can completely alter the course of a baby’s life. While some birth injuries are unavoidable, many occur when health care practitioners fail to follow standard care practices. If you suspect your baby was diagnosed with a disability or injury as a result of birth trauma, contact a Los Angeles birth injury attorney at Grey Law. Our team is committed to helping families recover after these serious and irreversible birth-related incidents.

The rate of birth injuries in the U.S. is about 6-8 injuries for every 1,000 live births. That may seem like a low number, until you consider that almost 11,000 babies are born in the country every day. Several of these injuries are highly preventable, and those responsible must face the legal consequences of their actions.

You can count on Grey Law to represent you at every step of your journey, from finding qualified medical support to securing fair compensation for your child’s injuries or death. We can’t undo the harm that has been done, but the work of your Los Angeles birth injury lawyer may stop others from enduring the same fate.

Causes of Preventable Birth Injuries

Some disabilities don’t form naturally in the womb. Instead, they happen as the result of a physician’s failure to recognize reasonable symptoms or to act accordingly during the delivery process. Some of the most common injuries associated with birth injury personal injury cases include: Erb’s Palsy, cerebral palsy, fractures, and brain damage.

If your child experiences an unexpected injury before or after delivery, don’t assume that the injury was unavoidable. Pay close attention to the medical process, take notes, and see another medical professional for a second opinion. If you think your child was injured as the result of a C-section mistake, a delay in treatment, an improper diagnosis, problems with delivery tools, or a preventable lack of oxygen, reach out to an experienced Los Angeles birth injury attorney. With a careful investigation, your attorney can help you take action against any negligent parties involved in your newborn’s injuries or death.

Latent Signs of Birth Injuries

Some birth injuries aren’t diagnosed immediately after delivery. Weeks or months later, a parent or health care provider may start to notice abnormal behaviors or other indicators that serve as signs of a possible birth injury. Contact a pediatrician if you have any concerns about your baby’s development or behaviors, and look out for these possible symptoms of brain injuries:

  • Your baby arches his or her back while crying.
  • You notice more lethargy than is normal for a baby in a certain stage of development.
  • Your baby is unusually sensitive to light.
  • Your baby has seizures.
  • You notice unusual difficulties when your baby suckles and swallows.
  • You notice health symptoms such as persistent coughing, the inability to gain weight, jaundice, or a low heart rate.
  • Your baby’s movements are weak or abnormal for a baby in a certain stage of development.
  • Your baby consistently fails to meet development milestones.

Like many health conditions, these symptoms are associated with many conditions—not just birth injuries. Work with your health care practitioners to determine the root cause of your baby’s symptoms over the first few years of life. Diagnoses in keeping with some of the most common birth injuries, such as a form of palsy, may indicate the need to look back at delivery practices.
