While giving birth to a child in West Virginia and across the United States normally occur with no problems, birth injuries do happen every day despite receiving adequate medical care. Birth injuries can occur due to the failure of a doctor or medical staff to take proper precautions or provide the level of expected care. Birth injuries can occur to your child while he or she is still in the womb or they can occur during delivery and birth.
At Salango Law, our team has handled numerous birth defect cases that occur as a result of complications during delivery. Injuries to a child may consist of lack of oxygen to the brain during delivery, trauma during delivery such as using forceps and injuring the child, failing to make the proper determination as to when a caesarian section may be needed. Moreover, a doctor may even fail to provide adequate care during the pregnancy such as failing to thoroughly review the mother’s health and the prescription drugs she may be taking.
If your child has suffered a birth injury and you believe it to be the result of negligence by your treating doctor or some other medical professional involved, contact Salango Law immediately. Suffering a birth injury during delivery can affect your child for the rest of his or her life. The Charleston medical malpractice attorneys at Salango Law have secured compensation for families to assist paying for expenses such as extensive medical or home care that your child may need.
