Doing Justice for Children Who Have Been Injured in Labor or Delivery
Every parent goes into labor hoping and praying that the process will go smoothly. Obstetricians, nurses and other medical professionals each have specific roles to make certain the birth goes according to plan. Obstetricians are trained to respond swiftly to certain signs of fetal distress. When these professionals fail to respond appropriately, the child can suffer profound injury. If your child has been injured in the birth process, you need an experienced lawyer to determine the cause of the injuries and put forth a compelling case on your child's behalf.
Moore, O'Brien & Foti has helped countless people across Connecticut who have been severely injured due to another's negligence. Our attorneys can represent children who have suffered serious injuries or trauma in labor or delivery such as:
- Brain damage caused by asphyxia or hypoxia
- Hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE)
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb's palsy
- Shoulder dystocia
Helping You Recover Compensation for a Lifetime of Care
When a child is injured in labor or delivery as a result of negligence, it is likely these injuries will impact your child for the rest of his or her life. As a result, you will need to make certain that this compensation will cover the expenses of future medical treatments and other costs. We will use well-regarded experts to show these costs and to show exactly how the doctor or other staff breached its duty of care. If your child's case must go to trial, you can take comfort in our law firm's experience.
