Bakersfield Medical Malpractice Attorney

Bakersfield Birth Injuries Attorney

After nine months of patient, eager expectance, all you want is to hold your new child in your arms and enjoy welcoming the newest edition to your family. When the mother or child is injured during birth, however, the joy that should define this day can quickly give way to pain, grief, and confusion. What happened? Could something have prevented this tragedy? And, if so, why wasn’t anything done?

As fragile as a newborn is, any birth injury has the potential to be catastrophic. A forceful delivery can cause neck injuries, spinal injuries, and brachial plexus injuries, putting a child at risk for paralysis. Even a relatively momentary lack of oxygen during birth can lead to devastating brain injuries, the full effects of which may not be seen for months. In many cases, such an injury can leave a child in need of full-time care for the rest of his or her life. In still other cases, a birth injury can take a child’s life before it has even begun.

Sometimes a birth injury is a tragic accident that no one could have foreseen. In other cases, however, an accident could have been prevented but was caused by the negligence of a doctor or hospital staff. If you suspect that this is the case, contact a Bakersfield medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible. You may be entitled to financial compensation for your damages.
