Causes of Birth Injury

When the obstetrical health care system fails, babies born with birth injuries are often the victims. In many situations, the mother’s health is endangered as well as the child’s. Lack of communication among caregivers, lack of understanding of complex medical issues related to pregnancy and birth, and inattentiveness of overworked nurses, technicians, and obstetricians have all been identified as causes of birth injuries. Experienced birth trauma attorneys John G. and John A. Lancione are tough, aggressive and highly knowledgeable advocates representing babies and their families injured during pregnancy, labor or delivery.

The task of a diligent birth injury lawyer is simply this: to help the injured infant and affected parents cope with the costs and challenges of care, therapy, and accommodations of a disability such as severe cerebral palsy. Examples of achievements of the successful birth injury law firm The Lancione Law Firm include the following:

  • $5 million for a twin who was injured when umbilical cord prolapse occurred and the needed C-section delivery was unnecessarily delayed
  • $3.75 million for a child and his family who suffered severe cerebral palsy when the obstetrician ignored obvious risk factors (maternal diabetes; overweight fetus) and failed to recommend C-section
  • $2.6 million for a child who suffered severe brain damage after the obstetrician failed to respond to fetal distress during induced labor, as reported by nurses
  • $2.3 million for a child with severe cerebral palsy after the nursing staff failed to recognize fetal distress on the fetal heart monitor tracing
  • $1.1 million for a baby who developed Erb’s palsy as a result of a brachial plexus injury at birth resulting from the obstetrician’s failure to employ standard maneuvers known to be effective in relieving shoulder dystocia
