Birth Injuries

Giving birth is an exciting, overwhelming and emotional experience. It’s time for you to meet your new baby for the very first time. However, a happy birth can be overshadowed by mistakes made by the medical team responsible for your care and your baby’s care and leave your family to deal with birth injuries that could have been prevented.


Conditions commonly caused by birth injuries include:


  • Retinopathy
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Erb’s Palsy
  • Paralysis
  • Bruises
  • Broken bones or fractures
  • Facial paralysis
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Brain injuries
  • Cephalohematoma
  • Brachial plexus injuries
  • Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN)

Caring for a newborn is difficult, but caring for an injured newborn can be extremely exhausting and heartbreaking. If your baby’s birth injury does not resolve, you could be left caring for a permanently injured child. The attorneys at the Law Firm Of Dykeman & Rosenthal are caring and compassionate, and understand what you’re going through as the parent of an injured child. We believe that no family should have to cover the costs of medical care associated with a birth injury that was due to the negligence of another person.
