Our Firm Has Unique Experience With Birth Injuries

In an ideal world, the birth of a baby is a joyous occasion. A dream come true can become a nightmare if there are problems during the delivery that are due to an obstetrician/gynecologist error that resulted in a birth injury, permanent disability and occasionally a wrongful death.

At Sakkas, Cahn & Weiss, LLP, our attorneys hold the medical practitioners accountable when they cause a birth injury to the mother or the child. Attorney Sakkas, Cahn & Weiss, LLP is particularly passionate about helping those who have suffered medical malpractice during childbirth. [nap_names id=”FIRM-NAME-11″] ran the medical malpractice division at his former New York City law firm and was in charge of handling all of the OB/GYN-related injuries. He has attended several live births and has a thorough understanding of the issues related to OB/GYN malpractice.

We obtained $585,000 for an infant who suffered a brachial plexus injury because of shoulder dystocia. We argued that the medical professional involved should have looked at the risk factors and opted for a cesarean section.

Birth Injuries Come In All Kinds

The decisions and actions of a physician, midwife or OB/GYN during delivery can adversely affect the baby and cause lifelong conditions. There are some childbirth conditions which require special attention such as a breech delivery, delivery of a big baby due to gestational diabetes or a baby with a face presentation.

Some of the common birth complications and injuries include:

  • Brachial plexus palsy
  • Caput succedaneum
  • Cephalohematoma
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Facial paralysis
  • Fetal laceration during a cesarean section
  • Forceps extraction, lacerations and bruising
  • Fractures
  • Hydrocephalus
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Subconjunctival hemorrhage
  • Vacuum extraction injuries

At our law firm, we also have experience with OB/GYN errors that occur during other nonchildbirth procedures such as the removal of fibroids.
