Los Angeles Attorneys Fighting for Birth Injury Victims
If Your Infant Was Injured During Birth, Our Attorneys Can Fight for You
For expecting parents, the day their new child comes into the world is one of the most important in their lives. It should be a time of absolute joy. Some parents’ delight is tempered when they learn their child was seriously injured during birth. Thinking about the difficulties your newborn may face for the rest of their life can be heartbreaking.

Our Los Angeles personal injury attorneys have years of experience helping people like you. We have successfully obtained hundreds of millions of dollars on the behalf of our clients.
Birth injury claims can be complicated because the scope of the damage may not be immediately evident. The actual harm can occur prior to delivery, during labor and delivery, or during neo-natal care. If your child has or appears to have a serious birth injury, contact our firm as soon as possible. We stand ready to assist you in every way we can.
What Causes Birth Injuries?
Birth injuries can be caused by a number of factors. Undetected viral or bacterial infections in the mother prior to delivery can cause fetal complications. A lack of oxygen or blood flow during a difficult delivery can cause brain damage in mere minutes.
Determining the cause of a birth injury is integral to a successful case. We work with medical experts who can review pregnancy and delivery records for failures to provide the accepted standard of medical care. Fetal monitoring records can reveal times of fetal stress during delivery. Factors like the fetal heartbeat can be indicators of dangerous or unfit care.
Delivery mistakes can result in:
- Wrongful death
- Brain injuries
- Cerebral Palsy
- Erb's Palsy
- Premature delivery
- Brachial plexus injury
- Developmental delays
If you and your baby are facing these difficulties, you deserve support from the doctor(s) at fault. A settlement or verdict could help you recover costs necessitated by their mistake.
