Las Vegas Birth Injury Lawyers

Birth injuries can cause a lifetime of problems for the baby and family, including the enormous financial strain of treatment for these injuries. If you feel your child received a birth injury through negligence of the medical staff that assisted during the birth process, you should contact our Las Vegas birth injury Lawyers at the law firm of Bertoldo Carter Smith & Cullen for experienced representation.

Types of Birth Injuries

There are several types of birth injuries, some of which may occur without the fault of any medical personnel. These may result from the birth canal being too small or the fetus being too large, or the fetus was lying in an abnormal position in the uterus before birth.

Usually though, these problems should be assessed via ultrasound and other techniques well before the birth itself, and may involve negligence if not discovered before it is too late.

When a medical mistake contributes to a birth injury, the family can recover compensation through a birth injury lawsuit.

Our birth injury lawyers have handled all types of cases, which include:

  • Cerebral Palsy – caused by a lack of oxygen to the brain, or trauma to the head of the baby, this incurable condition seriously affects the child’s ability to control movements and will often result in other medical conditions
  • Erb’s Palsy – the result of a stretching or tearing of the nerves that supply the child’s shoulder and arm
  • Nerve damage – forceps can injure the facial nerve resulting in facial paralysis; injuries to the diaphragm nerve can leave a baby with difficulty breathing
  • Perinatal Asphyxia – too little blood flowing to the fetus or lack of oxygen in the blood can cause permanent signs of neurologic damage, which can range from mild learning disorders and delayed development to cerebral palsy
  • Shoulder Dystocia - Occurring in anywhere from 0.5% to 1.5% of deliveries, this complication happens once the baby’s head has been delivered, yet one of the infant’s shoulders becomes trapped behind the mother’s public bone. If the medical staff don’t act quickly, then permanent brain damage or even death may result.
  • Developmental Delays - Permanent and long lasting neurological damage is often caused by a reduced blood flow or lack of oxygen to the brain, resulting in developmental delays, learning disorders, and more.
