Atlanta Birth Injuries Lawyer
The birth of a child is often one of the most important moments in any parent’s life. Unfortunately, what should be a joyous occasion can quickly become one fraught with pain, distress, and more if the child is born with a birth injury or defect. Sadly, as we at Ausband & Dumont know all too well, the negligence of medical professionals in Atlanta is often the cause of these birth injuries, forcing families to possibly forever deal with the consequences.
Birth injuries can cause children to suffer physical or developmental disorders that can affect them for the rest of their lives, potentially requiring costly medical treatment and intensive care. No parent should have to pay for the consequences of a doctor’s errors that caused their child harm. Fortunately, in many cases they don’t, as it is often possible to recover compensation to deal with the effects of a birth injury.
Types of Birth Injuries
The impact a birth injury can have on the lives of both parents and children can be extreme, and it may be necessary to recover compensation in order to deal with the consequences. Some of the most common birth injuries that people file personal injury claims for include:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Erb’s Palsy
- Facial Paralysis
- Brain and Spinal Damage
- Postnatal Infections
- Shaken Baby Syndrome
All of these possible types of birth injury can be extremely damaging to a child’s health and development, not to mention can substantially alter everyone in the family.
