Birth Injuries / Cerebral Palsy
The trauma caused by unexpected complications during childbirth is devastating, not only for the infant, but for the entire family. While no one sets out to cause harm, the fact remains that mistakes do happen. These unfortunate errors by any member of the childbirth healthcare team can cause catastrophic injuries resulting in lifelong struggles with brain damage, respiratory problems, cerebral palsy, seizures, learning disorders, and more.
Beckman & Marion has a long history of investigating the causes of newborn brain damage that may be related to medical mistakes and negligent action during prenatal, childbirth, and postnatal treatment. Brain damage, for example, can result from a lack of oxygen at birth, excessive trauma during the delivery, or complications caused by the doctors, nurses or midwives delaying a Caesarean section.
