Among our practice areas, we handle the following types of birth injury cases:
Cerebral palsy is one of the most common birth injuries and refers to different groups of disorders that affect the brain. A lack of oxygen to the baby’s brain during labor and/or delivery can cause this disorder. Our Oklahoma personal injury attorneys are prepared to represent you if your child is born with this condition.
In Erb’s palsy, the child suffers a paralysis of the arm that results from an injury to some of the arm’s vital nerves. This injury commonly occurs due to shoulder dystocia, or a case when the infant’s shoulders fail to be delivered shortly after the head. Our legal team represents parents in Erb’s palsy cases.
Brachial plexus palsy
Similar to Erb’s palsy, brachial plexus palsy refers to a specific condition that affects the infant’s shoulders. The brachial plexus is a series of nerves that sends signals from the spinal cord to the arm, shoulder and hand. Our personal injury lawyers have experience representing new parents in these cases.
Oxygen deficiency during childbirth can result in a number of different serious conditions. It can cause irreparable brain or organ damage, or even death. If your child suffered oxygen deficiency during birth, our lawyers can help to get you full and fair compensation.
