Spinal Birth Defect

Was your baby’s spinal cord hurt during birth from the doctor?  Spinal cord injuries are common in birth deliveries when the doctor chooses to use forceps to extract the baby. A difficult labor process is not usually the cause of spinal cord injuries, but the doctor’s fault from twisting the forceps more than 90 degrees with the baby attached. You may be eligible for compensation for your baby's pain and suffering that results from their spinal cord birth injury. Contact our birth defect attorneys.

Is your baby suffering from spinal cord injury and pain or paralyzed due to a spinal birth defect?  Contact our Birth Defect Attorneys today on spinal cord injuries.

Some problems with the baby’s spine from delivery include:

  • Nerve damage
  • Fractures
  • Paralysis
  • Numbness
  • Other injuries that cause pain

Forceps rotation can cause total paralysis of the baby’s lower extremities. When under anesthesia, a rupture to the baby’s spine may occur. Not only the traumatic birth the mother just went though, but knowing it was not the mother’s fault that their precious baby has a birth defect and is crippled for life now. Our birth defect attorneys will advise you of your legal rights and options.

One spinal injury is called Brachial Plexus injury or Erb’s Palsy and is a preventable injury. This area is a group of nerves that extents from the spinal cord to the arm, hand and fingers. Unfortunately many spinal cord injuries go undiagnosed. Only through doctor’s exams when signs are notice, you may realized this spinal cord injury is a result of the birth process and the misuse of forceps. Contact our birth defect attorneys if this happened to your baby.
