When Your Child's Delivery Is Mishandled

"A birth defect lasts forever." For the victim of a birth injury, that statement sums up the stark reality that faces many children who have been injured by the negligent actions of obstetricians.

A hypoxic brain injury during birth may prevent a child from developing to the full extent of his or her mental potential. A brachial plexus injury can cause partial paralysis in an arm or a permanently clenched hand. Shoulder dystocia can result in cerebral palsy. While many such sufferers can go on to lead meaningful and successful lives, they can face significant mental, physical and emotional challenges during their lives.

At Perry & Young, P.A., we represent victims of birth injuries in medical malpractice litigation. We believe that children who have suffered birth injuries as the result of medical negligence deserve medical care and financial resources that can enable them to be all that they can be.

If your child has suffered an injury due to the negligence of a physician before, during or after birth, we can help. Call us at 850-215-7777 for a free consultation with an attorney.
