Common Birth Injuries

Because the process of childbirth is so sensitive, there is ample opportunity for complications to arise. When these complications could have been avoided with proper care from doctors, however, it can be possible to hold those doctors responsible for their lack of attention or misjudgment.

The most common kinds of birth injury scenarios include:

  • Misuse of birthing equipment (vacuum extractor, forceps, etc.)
  • Failure to order a cesarean section ("c-section") when one was needed
  • Failure to detect umbilical cord entanglement
  • Failure to appropriately react to signs of fetal distress

If you believe that one of these scenarios applies to the injury of your newborn child, then the time to speak with proven counsel is now. At Gruenberg Kelly Della, we understand the lasting effects birth injuries can cause and know how to craft a malpractice suit that truly speaks to the needs of the injured child and the wrongdoing that harmed them.
