Birth Injuries

The birth of a baby is supposed to be one of the most exciting times in a new parent’s life. But when a birth injury occurs the happiness that you spent nine months anticipating comes crashing down around you. Your hopes and dreams are replaced by grief, sadness and confusion as you try to make sense of what happened. When a birth injury is the result of carelessness or negligence on the part of a healthcare professional, Reinherz & Reinherz can help. Our compassionate attorneys understand how painful a birth injury can be for a family, and will treat you with the utmost in compassion and kindness as we work to get justice for you and your infant.

Birth injuries are different from birth defects. Birth defects can be a result of heredity or they can be congenital, meaning that something went wrong as the baby was developing in the womb. But a birth injury is the result of an accident that takes place in the course of the baby’s delivery or immediately after.

Examples of birth injuries include:

  • Brain damage
  • Fractured bones
  • Bruises or cuts
  • Skull fracture
  • Facial paralysis
  • Cerebral palsy

Determining exactly what happened during the course of a labor and delivery requires expert investigation and analysis. At Reinherz & Reinherz we use all of the resources available to us to research the specifics of your case so that we can hold those responsible accountable for the harm that was done to your child. Caring for a child with severe birth injuries can require tremendous financial resources, and a negligence or malpractice case can provide you with the compensation that you need to give your child the care that they require and deserve.

We know that as a parent you want what is best for your child, and we do too. We are dedicated to finding out whether what happened to your child was preventable, and if it was we make sure that those responsible pay for their negligence.  At Reinherz & Reinherz we are committed to making sure that your child gets the justice he deserves and that he has the best future that he can possibly have.
