Representing Texans Whose Children Were Injured at Birth
Birth injuries can occur due to poor prenatal care or mistakes by the delivering physician or other medical personnel. Regardless of the cause of birth injuries, in most cases, they are irreversible.
Founded in 1951, Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner has several experienced birth injury attorneys who help families obtain compensation after their children were injured before, during or immediately following delivery.
If your child suffered a birth injury due to the negligence of a doctor or medical provider, he or she deserves compensation. These financial resources can provide for the long-term care and rehabilitation your child needs.
Common Birth Injuries
The most common forms of debilitating birth injury include:
- Shoulder dystocia
- Brachial plexus palsy
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Klumpke’s palsy
These are generally caused by doctor error during the birthing process and result in nerve damage and reduced motor function.
Other known birth-related and pregnancy-related injuries include:
- Prenatal asphyxia, which can result in brain damage and reduced motor function
- Childbirth defects related to SSRI antidepressant use during pregnancy
- Excessive newborn jaundice
- Brain damage
