  • Cephalohematoma
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Facial paralysis
  • Fetal lacerations
  • Hypoxia
  • Infant brain damage
  • Perinatal paralysis
  • Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Spinal cord injuries

If we can establish that you or your child was the victim of a birth injury, you could be entitled to damages that include medical expenses, therapy expenses, pain and trauma damages, lost wages, costs of special education and in-home care, and punitive damages.
