When you need an attorney who has the experience and the insight to hold a doctor accountable for their medical negligence, contact Levinson Axelrod, P.A. We not only have extensive experience handling medical malpractice claims—one of our attorneys, Rosemary McGeady, has 20 years of experience as a board certified physician.

What Constitutes a Birth Injury?
Birth injury (or birth trauma) is any injury that a baby suffers during delivery. Birth injuries have multiple causes, some of which are natural. However, doctors are trained to anticipate difficult births and should be prepared to handle them well ahead of time. For example, for large babies or mothers with smaller-than-average pelvic sizes, a doctor should be adequately prepared for a caesarean section procedure.
Some common results of medical negligence include:
- Erb’s palsy
- Cerebral palsy
- Bone fractures
- Facial paralysis
- Shoulder dystocia
- Forcep or vacuum injury
