Alexander Shunnarah and his team were very quick and thorough in putting my case together. They have a great system in place that they use to pursue their cases. The car accident lawyer was very helpful, caring, and professional as well. They kept me informed throughout the process which helped to relieve some of the stress that I had.

What Are Common Causes Of Birth Injuries? 

In the United States, birth injuries occur to about 7 babies in every 1,000 births.  Do you suspect that your baby is one of them? Although not all birth injuries are considered medical malpractice. 

Medical malpractice in a birth injury can occur during the before, during or after labor.  Prenatal care and postnatal care are just as important for the babies overall wellbeing. Here are some of the common causes of birth injuries that were caused by medical malpractice.

  • The medical staff does not identify signs of fetal distress and act fast
  • Dangerous situations are not handled immediately
  • Failure to diagnose any obvious health problems in the mother or the newborn
  • Neglect to watch the baby or mother postpartum
  • Misuse of forceps or vacuum extractor birthing tools
  • Using unnecessary force during childbirth

If you are wondering if your baby’s birth injury was due to negligence we are here to help you.  Call us for a free consultation to discuss your case.

Every birth injury case is different. Contact our team today for a free consultation to discuss your case and see how much compensation you are entitled to.

When choosing a birth injury lawyer, it would help if you feel at ease and certain that the lawyer will do everything possible to aid you. You are not required to hire the first lawyer you speak with. Choose a birth trauma attorney with the necessary qualifications and experience to handle your case. The following qualities should be present in a top birth injury lawyer.

It’s critical to deal with a birth injury lawyer familiar with handling cases similar to yours. If your lawyer does not have extensive experience with birth injury litigation, you may not receive the maximum amount of compensation available. Working with a competent lawyer who specializes in birth injury lawsuits is the best approach to receive compensation.

Birth injury attorneys who work for a national law firm will see more birth injury cases. They are able to achieve bigger compensation sums because of their experience in litigating these claims. Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys has decades of experience and will battle until the end for the infant and his or her family to receive compensation.

Check out an attorney’s track record of success before hiring them. Read evaluations and look at some of the previous settlements they’ve gotten. Make sure they’ve dealt with birth injury cases before.

Having a newborn baby with injuries can create a financial strain on new parents; hiring an attorney should not. This is why top birth injury lawyers do not charge an upfront fee. A birth trauma lawyer will give you a free case evaluation and work on a contingency fee basis, which means they won’t charge you legal fees unless you win.

To help you with your claim, birth injury lawyers have access to medical databases and other information. Experienced staff members, such as nurse case managers, medical experts, and others, can assist you in proving that your child’s brain injury could have been avoided with proper care.

A child is damaged in a birth injury case as a result of thoughtless and preventable mistakes made during childbirth. The types of injuries with which these attorneys have worked, as well as some of their clients, are listed below.

  • Cerebral Palsy is a condition that affects the brain.
    • Cerebral palsy is a lifelong disability caused by brain injury. It can cause developmental and physical impairments depending on which section of the brain is affected. Doctors can sometimes prevent cerebral palsy by preventing many of its consequences. Their goal is to ensure that a baby does not asphyxiate, as a lack of oxygen can damage the brain and cause cerebral palsy.
  • Erb’s Palsy is a type of paralysis.
    • Erb’s palsy, or brachial plexus palsy, is a type of nerve injury that affects the shoulders, arms, and hands. Numbness, weakness, or paralysis affects a child with Erb’s palsy all throughout their body. Even though Erb’s palsy is usually treatable, some children may never fully recover. Medical practitioners’ use of excessive force during the birth process might cause Erb’s palsy in the newborn. If a baby is trapped in the delivery canal and a vacuum extractor or forceps are used inappropriately, the doctor risks damaging the infant’s nerves.
  • Spinal cord injuries
    • Signals from the brain can go through the spinal cord to numerous regions of the body. Numbness or paralysis can be caused by nerve injury or rips in the spine. A spinal cord damage can occur when doctors tug too hard on a baby’s neck or head. Furthermore, some clinicians overlook illnesses that cause spinal cord damage, such as spina bifida, and fail to detect and treat them.
  • Brain Damage
    • A baby’s brain is in danger of harm if there is oxygen deprivation before birth, suffers head trauma, or is infected by their mother while still in the womb. There are both minor and severe brain damage, such as cerebral palsy, which can cause lifelong disabilities. 

Experienced birth injury lawyers can also handle a variety of other preventable birth injuries. Other sorts of birth injuries that may occur include:

  • Caput succedaneum
  • Cervical dystonia
  • C-section-related injuries
  • Torticollis in children
    Klumpke’s palsy (Kernicterus Klumpke’s palsy)
  • Infections in the mother
  • Aspiration of feces causes meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS)
  • Cephalohematoma in a newborn
  • Jaundice in newborns
  • Injuries caused by vacuum extraction
  • Placental Abruption
  • Clavicle Fracture
  • Fractures of the skull
  • Fetal Death

If you suspect your child’s injury was caused by negligent care, contact an expert birth injury attorney.

A Childbirth injury lawyer will fight hard on your behalf to prove your case and obtain you the most money possible in the shortest amount of time. Every birth injury lawsuit is unique, although the majority of them follow the same steps:


When you contact them for a free case evaluation, they will examine the evidence supplied to see if you have a solid claim.


If the lawyer agrees to take the case, a lawsuit is filed against the liable party (generally the physician who delivered your child).


Your birth injury lawyer, like the defendant’s lawyer, will gather evidence and facts to support their case.

Mediation In order to avoid a trial, each party presents their evidence to a neutral third-party mediator, such as a judge.


If your attorney can establish that your child’s injury might have been avoided, the defendant is likely to make a birth injury compensation offer.


If a problem cannot be resolved outside of court, it will be assigned to a judge, who will listen to both sides of the tale. A settlement may be made during the trial process, but if this does not occur, the matter will be decided by a jury or judge.

A birth injury attorney will assist you throughout the legal process and keep you updated on time. The time it takes to resolve birth injury claims varies. A settlement can take a few months or several years, depending on the circumstances.

Many birth injury attorneys propose settling out of court to help their clients achieve financial recompense sooner than they would in a trial.  Our experienced attorneys take more cases to trial than other lawyers, to ensure their clients are getting the compensation they deserve.
