Birth Injuries

California Medical Malpractice Attorney

California Birth Injury Lawyer

A birth injury can rob a child and a family of the future they should have shared together. A negligent error by an obstetrician or delivery nurse can saddle a child with a permanent physical or mental disability. A birth injury can also cause the wrongful death of a child, and the unrelenting grief of his or her parents.

If you believe your child suffered a birth injury due to medical negligence, you would be wise to contact the Law Offices of Benjamin Fogel, Inc., for effective legal representation.

For more than 40 years, we have recovered millions of dollars in damages on behalf of children who suffered birth injuries and their parents. We are skilled in handling all types of birth injury claims, including those involving:
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Erb's Palsy
  • Brachial Plexus Paralysis
  • Shoulder Distocia
  • Hypoxia
  • Down Syndrome
  • Congenital Heart Defect
  • Traumatic Head Injury by Forceps Delivery
  • Syndrome 13-18
  • Spina Bifida
  • BGS and Untreated Infections
In many cases, a child who suffers a birth injury will need extensive medical care for the rest of his or her natural life. We are skilled at accounting for all the current and future expenses the family will incur because of the birth injury. These can include the costs of special education, nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, wheel chairs, medical devices, and more.

We will gather all relevant medical records and have them reviewed by a respected medical expert who can determine with authority whether obstetrical negligence was a cause of the birth injury.  Did the doctor fail to monitor the labor or fail to read the fetal monitoring strip? Did the OB-GYN wait too long to perform a Cesarean section? We will investigate your case, file a birth injury lawsuit, and aggressively pursue the full amount of financial compensation you and your child deserve.

Failure to Detect Birth Defects

We also represent women whose doctors failed to detect birth defects such as Down Syndrome, Syndrome 13, or other serious abnormalities, thus robbing the mother of her right to decide whether or not to continue the pregnancy.
