Orange County Birth Injury Attorney
Hundreds of Medical Malpractice Cases Handled
Birth injuries can be emotionally devastating to parents who never expected for anything to go wrong during the birth of their child. While we all expect that we can place our trust in the medical system, it is an unfortunate reality that many newborns suffer injuries that could have been prevented if not for a physician’s error. These mistakes could mean a lifetime of consequences for an innocent child who may suffer from physical and/or cognitive disability, and a lifetime of medical bills to provide them with the care they need.

Leading Causes of Birth Injuries
Birth injuries can arise from a number of causes, including:
- Head trauma during delivery
- Forcible delivery
- Unskilled use of forceps or vacuum extractors
- Oxygen deprivation during birth
- The doctor’s failure to identify and treat a complicating condition
