Portland Birth Injury Lawyer
Angel Law, P.C. Working to Protect Families in Need. Call (503) 862-8666.
When the medical staff involved with helping a mother give birth to her
child acts negligently or fails to perform their duties in a way that
should have been preventable, serious birth injuries can occur to both
the mother and the newborn.
Medical malpractice caused by a delivering physician, an obstetrical delivery team, or any
team member during childbirth is never excusable. Even if the staff is
working long hours or is comprised of largely inexperienced practitioners,
it is their duty to provide a safe environment for birthing mothers.

Types of Birth Injuries Caused by Negligent Birthing Staff
The truly upsetting fact of birth injuries is that so many should have
been avoidable. The staff in charge of the birthing procedure should have
been familiar with what needed to happen, and what should not have been
allowed to happen. They should have gone through medical school or specialized
training for this reason, so any devastating mistakes that do occur are
likely due to some slip of the mind or carelessness.
Some common forms of birth injuries, either to the child or the mother, include:
- Cerebral palsy
- Brachial plexus injuries
- Shoulder dystocia
Brain damage due to oxygen deprivation
- Unsafe or hasty C-section procedures
- Wrongful death
Birth injuries can be caused by a number of individuals, including the
delivering physician OB/GYN, nurse, midwife, or anesthesiologist. Any
individual responsible for substandard care during the prenatal, labor,
or delivery period can be liable for birth injuries. In some cases, a
hospital bears partial responsibility for a birth injury because of its
lack of adequate training or failure to provide adequate facilities.
We will help you seek a financial recovery to pay for: Long-term therapy, nursing care, medications, medical bills related to
the birth, and nominal damages for your emotional trauma.
