Tampa Birth Injury Lawyer
Legal Help for Victims in Florida
One of the most heartbreaking types of
medical malpractice is birth injuries. If your child suffered from a birth injury because of the
negligence or carelessness of a medical professional, you could be entitled to compensation.
Two major types of birth injuries are cerebral palsy and Erb's palsy.
Cerebral palsy is a medical condition that causes the brain to stop functioning
properly. It results in abnormal motions, loss of muscle strength, impaired
hearing and speaking, and tight or loose joints.
What many people do not realize is that it can develop as the result of
a birth injury. If the doctor used forceps improperly or a prolapsed cord
was not diagnosed properly, the baby could suffer from the debilitating
disease for the rest of their life. Erb's palsy can cause paralysis
of the child's arm and affects the brachial plexus (network of nerve
fibers runs from the spine into the arm). This can happen if there was
a difficult delivery or if manipulation was required to extract the baby.
