Holding Doctors Accountable For Birth Trauma

Birth trauma can be as legally complex as it is emotionally devastating. If you were injured during childbirth, a skilled lawyer can examine your case and suggest a course of action that ensures your financial well-being and holds those responsible for your injuries accountable for their actions. At The Law Office of Nick Stein, our New Albany birth injury lawyers are ready to fight by your side.

Birth injuries can be devastating and impact the lives of the entire family. From offices in New Albany, our firm is prepared to represent clients in New Albany and communities throughout Indiana in a wide range of legal matters, including those involving:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Facial nerve palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Forceps injuries
  • Vacuum extraction injuries

Whether the injury or condition was caused by lack of oxygen or excessive force during the birth, both the baby and mother can suffer lasting damage.

Unfortunately, birth trauma can be caused during prenatal care, labor or delivery. Doctors and nurses must remain vigilant in monitoring vital signs and possible problems. In fact, failure to recognize fetal distress is a common thread among birth injury cases. If a medical professional does not recognize that the fetus is suffering, it might lead to widespread injuries or even death. The staff's inaction or inattention can lead to dangerous situations. We can handle cases centering on:

  • Failure to monitor fetal distress
  • Breech presentation
  • Abnormal birth position
  • Prolonged delivery

The mother can suffer from hemorrhages and other life-threatening developments during childbirth. If a loved one has suffered an injury during or after childbirth, schedule a free consultation with a skilled personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
