Compassionate Personal Injury Attorney Handles Birth Injury Cases in Greensboro

Fighting to help you get rightful compensation in North Carolina

Bringing a child into this world is one the greatest joys a person can experience. When you go to the hospital to have your baby delivered, you trust that you are in good hands. The reality is that hospitals and doctors make mistakes. If you believe your child has suffered a birth injury at the hands of a health care professional, we at Lanier Law Group, P.A. want to be your voice. Our distinguished legal team has the resources, experience and knowledge to help you bring a lawsuit against whoever may have caused your baby harm.

Who is responsible in birth injury cases?

Negligence can occur anywhere. Nonetheless, it is most tragic when it occurs in hospitals — the very place people go for medical treatment. At Lanier Law Group, P.A., our tenacious lawyers are prepared to pursue damages against whoever may have caused a birth injury to your child in Greensboro. In our experience, we have found the parties below are often to blame:

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

These are only of 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. Some accidents in hospitals are so severe they can lead to a serious personal injury or death.

Top causes of birth injuries

The moment you suspect that your baby has suffered a personal injury, you should seek help from a skilled personal injury attorney serving Greensboro. We work quickly to gather evidence and may help you obtain compensation. Birth injuries are sometimes caused by doctors and nurses during delivery. Below are the most common types of birth injuries:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Fractures
  • Brachial plexus palsy
  • Bleeding in the brain
  • Forceps bruising and lacerations

Not all birth injuries occur in hospitals. If you are pregnant, and you are in a car accident with a drunk driver, your unborn child may suffer an injury and be entitled to compensation. A skilled lawyer serving Burlington can assess your case and determine if you can bring a dram shop claim against whoever supplied alcohol to the drunk driver who caused your accident.
