Portland Birth Injury Attorneys
Was Malpractice Responsible for a Birth Injury in Your Family?
If your infant was born with a serious injury, disability or infection, it would be unwise to assume that the problem reflects a congenital defect or an unavoidable complication. An experienced medical malpractice lawyer can help you determine whether the birth injury resulted instead from the negligence of a member of the delivery team.

Many things can go wrong during delivery. Improper attention to the electronic fetal monitoring readouts can result in a delayed reaction to fetal distress. Extended periods of improper oxygenation can result in cerebral palsy or brain damage. Delays in ordering a C-section can require high-risk surgical extraction and a whole range of potential injuries to the fetus.
