Birth Injuries And Medical Negligence
A birth injury is a devastating turn of events for a family that was planning for a joyous arrival. While some birth injuries are unavoidable, many are the result of negligence on the part of obstetricians and other caregivers. When medical malpractice causes an injury to an infant or mother, victims have the right to pursue compensation for their losses.
I am Brian Burchett, an attorney with more than 30 years of experience handling medical negligence cases involving birth injuries and other medical mistakes. I understand the tremendous emotional and financial burdens that accompany a birth injury and am here to help.
When Medical Negligence Leads To A Birth Injury
To ensure a safe delivery, mother and child must be carefully monitored prior to, during and after childbirth. Failure to do so can result in devastating consequences, including cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, life-altering injuries and even wrongful death.
Obstetricians, nurses and other delivery room personnel are trained to identify risk factors of birth injuries and to follow established protocols when warning signs appear. When they fail to take appropriate action, the results can be tragic.
I have extensive experience handling birth injury claims and know how to uncover evidence of negligence during pregnancy, labor, birth and neonatal care. I am committed to helping families obtain compensation for the many hardships they face today and throughout the life of a child affected by birth injury.
