What is birth injury?

A birth injury is any damage sustained by an infant during the birthing process. Most birth injuries are a result of nursing malpractice or medical negligence that could have been prevented. For instance, the misuse of forceps or a vacuum extractor during delivery could cause a birth injury.

At Clark & Associates, “Oklahoma City Birth Injury Lawyer ” we are experienced in handling these types of cases and will aggressively pursue your rights to compensation for the injury or death of a child.

Our Oklahoma City Birth Injury law firm is comprised of experienced Birth Injury Attorney with a record of success in handling complex medical malpractice claims against doctors, nurses, and hospitals involved in birth injuries. We will begin an immediate and comprehensive investigation to identify all responsible parties. Our legal team is experienced with many types of birth injuries, including:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Loss of oxygen
  • Loss of blood
  • Erb’s palsy
  • Injuries to mother/maternal death
  • Wrongful death
  • Cord compression
  • Mothers with risks, including diabetes and high blood pressure


Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral palsy is a condition in which an individual is unable to move muscles or joints. This sometimes results from brain damage caused before, during, or soon after birth. Medical professionals may be responsible if the umbilical cord restricted oxygen during delivery and resulted in cerebral palsy.

Similarly, medical negligence may have played a role if trauma during delivery caused bleeding in the brain that resulted in cerebral palsy.

However, since an infection or brain malformation during pregnancy may also cause cerebral palsy, it is important to determine the cause of the condition. Our Oklahoma City Birth Injury Lawyer can investigate the cause of your child’s brain injury to assess whether or not it was a result of medical negligence. If it is, we will aggressively pursue your claim through settlement or trial.


Erb’s Palsy

Infants with Erb’s palsy are typically unable to move an arm. This results from an injury to the brachial plexus, a network of nerves that provides movement and sensation to the arms, hands, and fingers. Erb’s palsy typically results from a difficult delivery, when the neck is stretched, and the nerves are damaged or torn.

With physical therapy, most infants are able to regain movement of their arms within a few months; however, some injuries may be permanent. If your child suffers from Erb’s palsy or another birth injury, the Oklahoma City Birth Injury Lawyers at Clark & Associates, an experienced Medical Malpractice lawyer in Oklahoma can provide effective legal representation to pursue full and fair compensation.
