Washington DC Birth Injury Attorney

Med Mal Lawyer Who Is Qualified in Both Legal & Medical Areas

While you might expect birth is a routine procedure for obstetricians these days, child delivery can still be a complex and dangerous process. While some birth injuries can be minor, others are severe and may cause a lifetime of medical challenges and medical expenses. Not all birth injuries result from medical errors or negligence, however. The question is whether the injury was caused by negligence or error made by the obstetrician, nurse, pediatrician, neonatologist, or other healthcare provider.

Any number of occurrences can result in an unfortunate or even fatal injury to either mother or child, including the following:

  • Oxygen deprivation
  • Trauma caused by instruments
  • Medication dosage errors
  • Improper delivery method
  • Nerve or spinal damage
  • Infections
  • Diagnostic errors

If your child has suffered a birth injury due to medical negligence, contact our Washington DC birth injury lawyers right away. We can fight for the rights of you and your family.

Types of Birth Injuries

Such errors do not just happen. Mistakes and misjudgment by physicians and other medical staff can cause otherwise avoidable injuries. The following are just some of the injuries that may necessitate protracted medical care for mother and child, cause them pain and suffering, and forever alter their lives:

  • Paralysis
  • Brain damage
  • Brachial Plexus Palsy
  • Meconium Aspiration Syndrome
  • Erb's Palsy
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Intracranial hemorrhage
  • Meningitis
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Bone fractures
  • Spinal cord trauma
  • Klumpke's palsy
  • Horner's syndrome
  • Horner's syndrome
  • Cephalohematoma
  • Cranial nerve trauma

Prolonged or difficult delivery can also cause various types of partial paralysis, including Klumpke paralysis, Horner syndrome, Erb’s palsy, and other brachial plexus injuries. These injuries can occur when a physician places undo strain on the neck, head, shoulders, or raised arms of a baby during delivery.

When such injuries occur, doctors and hospitals are often evasive. It takes an aggressive birth injury law firm to force medical professionals and institutions to take responsibility for their mistakes. The Law Offices of Dr. Michael M. Wilson, M.D., J.D. & Associates has been bringing both legal and medical expertise to bear on negligent doctors and hospitals in the DC-Baltimore metro areas for over 20 years.
