Who Is Responsible in Birth Injury Cases?

Negligence can occur anywhere. Nonetheless, it is arguably most tragic when it occurs in hospitals—the very place people go for medical treatment and care. At Lanier Law Group, our tenacious lawyers are prepared to pursue damages against whoever may have caused your child's birth injury.

In our experience, we have found that the following parties are often to blame:

  • Delivery doctors
  • Delivery nurses
  • Maternity care nurses
  • Surgeons

These are only a few of the individuals who may be responsible for causing harm to your baby. Virtually anyone who works at a hospital, or even the hospital itself, can cause a birth injury.

What Are the Top Causes of Birth Injuries in North Carolina?

As a parent or parent-to-be, you need to know what poses a danger to your newborn during delivery. This may be hard due to how many causes of birth injury there are, however, knowing the top causes of birth injuries will help you get a sense of what can happen. The moment you suspect that your baby has suffered a birth injury, you should seek help from a skilled birth injury lawyer. Our firm works quickly to gather evidence, including relevant medical records, to build a strong case that may help you obtain compensation.

Some of the most common causes of birth injuries include:

  • Failure to diagnose maternal complications
  • Improper prenatal care
  • Negligence during labor and/or delivery
  • Misuse of birth assistance tools
  • Failure to monitor an infant/mother’s vital signs
