Birth Injuries in WV

Birth Injury Attorneys Serving West Virginia

While most births in West Virginia and across the United States occur with no problems, there are birth injuries happening every day despite adequate medical care. These injuries can occur due to failure on the part of the doctor or medical staff to take proper precautions or provide the level of expected care. A birth injury can occur to your child either in the womb or during delivery and birth.

Our team has handled numerous birth defect cases that occur as a result of problems during delivery. If there is a lack of oxygen to the brain during delivery, or some other trauma during the birth itself, a birth injury could result. A doctor may incorrectly use forceps, injuring the child, or fail to make the proper determination as to when a caesarian section is needed, putting the child’s health at risk. A doctor may even fail to provide adequate care throughout the pregnancy, falling short of a thorough review of the mother’s health and what prescription drugs she may be taking that could affect a pregnancy and the unborn child.

If your child has suffered a birth injury due to the negligence of your treating doctor or some other medical professional involved in the birth, contact a Preston & Salango immediately. Suffering a birth injury during delivery or as a result of improper care during pregnancy can affect your child for the rest of their life.
