Types of Florida Birth Injuries
We trust that OB-GYN physicians and childbirth nurses will act according to the accepted standards of care. But when a medical professional ignores accepted protocol and makes a wrong decision, it can cause life-altering birth injuries such as:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Brain damage
- Internal injuries
- Meningitis and other infections
- Intracranial bleeding
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord damage
Our South Florida birth injury lawyers also handle cases where the wrong type of delivery was ordered, a delay in diagnosis of a malignancy or other condition caused permanent damage, or a neonatal staff member mishandled or mistreated a newborn. In birth injury cases, there may be several defendants that are charged with causing undue injury, including physicians, nurses, hospitals, birthing centers, midwives, and others involved in the birthing process.
