Birth Injuries in Pennsylvania – During Labor & Delivery
Birth injuries in Pennsylvania can range from nerve damage to severe brain damage. In many cases, a lack of oxygen to the infant during labor and delivery can result in severe developmental delays such as cerebral palsy, or, in the worst case scenarios – death.
Many birth injuries are caused by the following:
- Failing to monitor, detect, or treat maternal infection
- Failing to plan and carry out an emergency C-section
- Failing to identify and treat a prolapsed umbilical cord
- Failing to use birth-assist tools correctly
Our team can investigate the circumstances surrounding your infant’s injury to determine the cause, and subsequently, who may be held liable for the injury.
