Columbia Birth Injury Attorney
Claims for Injuries from Birth Incidents
Learning that your child has suffered an injury during labor or delivery
can be one of the most emotionally devastating experiences you will ever
experience. In addition to the immediate pain and suffering of the injury,
your child may be facing a future of partial or total disability, and
he or she may never be fully self-sufficient or able to enjoy all that
life has to offer.
To make matters worse, your child may require:
- Ongoing rehabilitative treatment
- Medical procedures
- Continuing nursing care
- Equipment such as a wheelchair or respirator
Fortunately, you may be able to secure financial compensation for all of
these costs so that you can afford everything your child needs and to
provide for his or her future.
Speak with our Columbia personal injury lawyer to find out how we can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.

Recognizing Signs of a Birth Injury
A birth injury may be immediately apparent at the time of the injury, or
the presentation of the injury may be delayed over a course of days, weeks,
months, or even years. Erb's palsy will typically be evident relatively
early, manifesting itself through apparent weakness or even paralysis
in one of the baby's arms.
Cerebral palsy and other conditions caused by oxygen deprivation and
brain injury may not be noticed until the child begins to display developmental delays
in cognitive ability or motor skills. In either case, it is advisable
to consult with a Columbia birth injury attorney as early as possible
so that you can take appropriate legal action before the statute of limitations runs out.
