/ Practice Areas/ Birth Injuries
The day your child is born should be a joyful day. However, for many parents, their child’s birth results in life-long birth injuries that could have been prevented. These tragic results may occur due to the imcompetence or negligence of the medical doctors you trust to have you and your child’s best interest in mind.
WKW is well equipped to properly evaluate and pursue your birth injury case. In addition to being named one of Indiana’s Super Lawyers for ten consecutive years, Partner Bruce Kehoe was also one of only three attorneys in the United States to be featured in Parenting magazine’s 2013 Top Birth Injury Advocates special section nationwide.
Birth injuries may result from any number of scenarios stemming from conditions or events during pregnancy, labor and/or delivery. Common examples of doctor error leading to birth trauma include the following:
A baby who is pulled out of the mother’s birth canal by vacuum extraction may suffer an injured spinal cord or brain, since a newborn’s skull is not fused together. A baby who was in fact too big for his mother to deliver vaginally is vulnerable to spinal cord injury if the attending physician resorts to stretching him while attempting to extract him with a vacuum device.
Parents of babies who have suffered brain injury or spinal cord injury as a result of birth trauma are urged to contact the Indianapolis Birth Injury Lawyers of Wilson Kehoe Winingham promptly to schedule a free initial consultation with a birth injury attorney in Indianapolis.
