Minnesota Birth Injury Attorneys
Finding answers when a child suffers a birth injury
Obstetricians are trained to know and react to conditions in pregnancy, labor and delivery that could cause a birth injury. When fetal stress occurs, doctors and nurses are trained to respond quickly and appropriately. When they fail — when medical negligence or malpractice causes a birth injury — the parents need and deserve answers.
The medical negligence lawyers at Lommen Abdo have the experience and compassion to talk to you about your baby’s birth injury, look for answers about how it happened, seek justice and obtain the financial recovery necessary to compensate for the injury in the months and years to come. Among the many types of birth injury cases we have handled are:
- Cerebral palsy, a condition caused by decreased flow of blood or oxygen to the baby during birth
- Erb’s palsy, an injury to the shoulder caused by the use of excessive force to remove a baby trapped in the birth canal
- Brachial plexus, an injury to the nerves that could have been caused by an obstetrician’s improper use of forceps during delivery
Not every birth injury is due to medical malpractice, but it can be difficult to get an honest answer from the doctors and hospitals involved. Our job at Lommen Abdo is to find the answers you need.
