PA Medical Malpractice Attorney

Bringing a child into the world is one of the greatest joys of life. But sometimes complications during labor can cause injury or even death. While such complications can be a result of the natural child-birth process, they can also be caused by negligence or malpractice.

A PA medical malpractice attorney can help you if your baby has suffered from any of the following:

  • Brain injury: This can be caused by a deprivation of oxygen or the twisting of the umbilical cord. It can result in brain damage, mental impairment, cerebral palsy, or seizure disorders.
  • Bruising and forceps marks: Forceps can leave bruises and marks on the face and head of the baby. In some instances, if too much pressure is applied, the forceps can cause skull fractures.
  • Caput succedaneum: The use of vacuum extraction can cause this condition which results in extreme swelling of the baby’s scalp.
  • Facial paralysis: This condition usually causes temporary paralysis of the face as a result of labor, or the use of forceps. If there is severe nerve damage, the paralysis can be permanent.
  • Brachial Plexus Palsy: If the doctor fails to estimate the correct weight of the baby, misjudges the length of the baby’s shoulder, or applies excessive lateral traction to the neck, the baby may suffer an injury to the nerves that control the muscles in the hand, arm, or shoulder.

If you suspect that you or your baby has suffered an injury at the hands of a healthcare professional, contact a PA medical malpractice attorney at Wusinich & Brogan P.C. You may be entitled to compensation.
