Sometimes unfortunately children are born with defects that have nothing to do with the doctors negligence, and sometimes like in an Erb’s Palsy case, it has to do with the doctors negligence in the process of giving birth to the baby.

Birth injuries are sometimes caused by improper anesthesia, or doctors being to rough in the childbirth process, or not deciding whether natural birth or caesarian section is necessary on a case by case basis.

Birth injuries can happen in many ways. To establish liability for an injury to your child, a lawyer must identify the ways in which the medical care provided to you and your child was deficient.
