Birth Injuries

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.
