How Birth Injuries Occur
Birth injuries arise by the careless or intentional acts of a doctor, nurse, hospital, or other healthcare provider. When these actions cause an injury to a baby – but do not rise to the level of a crime – they can provide the basis for a lawsuit.
Those determined legally responsible for injuring someone else are liable for the injury, and may be required to pay compensatory damages. Compensatory damages attempt to put an injured person back in the position he or she was in before being injured. This can include past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, disability and disfigurement, loss of a normal life and loss of future earnings depending on the type of negligence and injury.
For over 40 years, our Sacramento attorneys have handled all types of birth injury lawsuits for clients, including:
- Brain Damage

- Brachial Plexus Injuries
- Shoulder Dystocia
- Breech Birth Complications
- Cerebral Palsy

- Birth Injury Caused by Vacuum Extraction
- Birth Injury Caused by Poorly Formed Caesarean
