Norfolk Birth Injury Lawyers

Serving Norfolk, Newport News, Roanoke & Nearby Areas of Virginia

One of the greatest fears when heading to the hospital to deliver your baby is the fear that something could go wrong during the birth. The process of labor and delivery is highly complicated and extremely unpredictable. Placing your trust in the medical professionals that will be aiding in your child's delivery can be concerning because medical malpractice may occur in several situations.

During a birth, medical professionals may have to make split-second decisions and must be cautious not to ignore important warning signs. Sometimes, missing these warning signs can lead to birth injuries, in particular, those that harm the child's brain.

Kalfus & Nachman PC is honored to have an attorney appointed by the Governor of Virginia to the Board of Directors of the Virginia Birth-Related Neurological Injury Compensation Program. If you have been victim to medical malpractice that led to your child's birth injury, please allow our experienced Norfolk medical malpractice attorneys to help. We have a large team that combines our experiences to provide you with exceptional service while we fight for what you deserve.

Causes of Birth Injuries

The most serious types of birth injuries are those that affect your child's brain. A lack of oxygen during delivery (hypoxia), or bleeding within the skull or brain, is usually what causes birth injuries and often results in irreversible brain damage.

A shortage of oxygen can be caused by a number of things including the following:

  • Unusual birth position
  • The placenta separating from the uterus wall too early
  • A problem with circulation in the umbilical cord
  • Labor that is too long or too short

Most medical malpractice claims that stem from this kind of injury allege that doctors or medical professionals failed to anticipate, recognize, or react to these dangerous scenarios. Use of excessive force, failure to properly anticipate the size of the child, and failure to order a C-section are other factors that can lead to birth injuries.

Types of Birth Injuries

Some of the common types of birth injuries are:

  • Cerebral palsy
  • Brachial plexus injuries: Erb's palsy, Klumpke's palsy, and Horner's syndrome
  • Shoulder dystocia
  • Fractures
  • Bleeding
  • Spinal cord trauma
  • Cranial nerve trauma
  • Paralysis
