Birth Injuries

For expectant parents, the birthing process comes with many uncertainties. Each birth is different, and it is unlikely that your second birth will mirror your first. Most parents balance those uncertainties with trust in their obstetrician and the hospital - while you may not know how the birth of your baby will go exactly, you do trust that your doctor will follow the standard of care and assist you in delivering a healthy baby.

Birth injuries are injuries to the baby (or the mother) that occur immediately before, during or after labor and delivery. If your child was injured, you may feel that your life has been turned upside down. Musleh Law Firm, in Ocala, Florida, provides compassionate client care to parents whose babies have sustained birth injuries. We will take ample time to understand how this injury has affected your family and advise on the course of legal action to take on your behalf.

We offer free initial consultations to discuss potential birth injury claims. To schedule yours, please call us locally at 352-484-0134. We handle all medical malpractice claims on a contingency basis. This means we do not receive attorney fees or costs unless we recover compensation on your behalf.

EXAMPLES OF INJURIES SUSTAINED AT BIRTH

Birth injuries can occur at all stages of pregnancy, but our attorneys have found that the vast majority occur during labor and delivery. Life-altering injuries, including brain damage and cerebral palsy, can occur due to:

  • Excessive use of force
  • Unnecessary surgery
  • Improper intubation
  • Failure to perform C-section in a timely manner
  • Failure to property monitor fetal distress

Not all births will be smooth, and your doctor as well as other medical professionals in the delivery room must comply with the standard of care to ensure yours is as smooth as possible. They are trained to handle highly dangerous situations as well as low-risk births. While there is no guarantee that your baby will be born without complications, doctors need to take every measure to ensure a birth injury does not occur.
