Birth Injury Lawyers in Detroit, Michigan


Traumatic birth injuries can be a result of medical malpractice. The birth of a child is one of the miraculous wonders many have the privilege to witness in their lifetimes. When a mother or child suffers an injury during birth, families are often left bewildered, wondering how and why such a tragedy occurred. Many birth injuries involve unforeseeable complications that must be treated as best as possible when they occur. In other cases, a birth injury is preventable and may be the result of medical error, negligence or malpractice.
If you or a loved one has suffered the effects of a birth injury, please contact us to speak with a qualified and experienced birth injury attorney who can evaluate your case to determine your legal rights and options.

Common Causes of Birth Injuries

  • Complications during pregnancy
  • Improper dating
  • Complications during childbirth
  • Obstetrician or gynecologist errors
  • Obstetrical mistakes

Complications During Pregnancy

Birth injury may be the result of a complication that developed during pregnancy. Many of these risks can be identified during a woman's pregnancy and treated to decrease or prevent a subsequent birth injury. Prenatal complications greatly increase the risk that a child or mother will suffer a birth injury.
  • Maternal or fetal infections and health conditions
  • Rh incompatibility between the mother and child
  • Maternal drug, tobacco or alcohol use

Improper Dating

Improper dating of a pregnancy is also a risk factor to birth injury. The large gestational size of a baby's body or head in a post-mature delivery can increase the risk that a child will suffer a birth injury. When a child is born prematurely, they are also at risk for birth injury complications. In some cases, medical professionals cannot intercede to prevent pre- and post-mature deliveries. These birth injury complications may also be the result of a medical mistake or negligence.

Complications During Childbirth

Complications during childbirth can also result in a birth injury. Physicians who employ medical birthing techniques, such as forceps or vacuum delivery, with unnecessary force run the risk of causing a birth injury as a result of their malpractice.

Common Conditions Due to Birth Injuries

  • Brachial plexus palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Birth trauma
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with one of these or any other birth-related injury, please contact us to speak with a qualified and experienced birth injury attorney who can evaluate your case to determine your legal rights and options.

Medical Treatment

Many types of birth injuries are mild and heal without medical intervention. In other cases, birth injuries result in severe and permanent injury, or even death. Extensive medical treatment may be required to correct a birth injury. Erb's palsy is one example of a common birth injury that may resolve spontaneously or may require significant medical intervention. On the other hand, cerebral palsy is a serious and permanent birth injury that cannot be resolved through medical attention but can benefit from a comprehensive treatment program to manage symptoms.
Medical treatment for birth injuries is often a lifelong procedure that can be emotionally and financially devastating to the victim and their loved ones. If you believe you are entitled to a settlement or recompense for a birth injury, please come talk to our malpractice lawyers.
