Texas Birth Injury Lawyer: Fighting for Your Child’s Future After a Preventable Injury

The birth of a child should be a time of immense joy and hope. But for families facing the devastating reality of a birth injury, this joy can quickly turn to heartbreak and fear. If your child has suffered a birth injury due to medical negligence in Texas, you are not alone. The Law Office of Paul Previte can help you navigate the legal complexities of your situation and fight for the compensation your child needs for a secure future.

Understanding Birth Injuries

Birth injuries can occur for various reasons, some unavoidable. However, in some cases, medical errors or negligence on the part of healthcare providers during pregnancy, labor, or delivery can cause serious and lasting harm to a newborn. Some common types of birth injuries caused by medical malpractice include:

  • Cerebral palsy: A group of permanent movement disorders affecting coordination, muscle tone, and balance.
  • Erb’s palsy: Damage to the nerves in the upper arm, shoulder, and neck, causing weakness, paralysis, and limited movement in the arm.
  • Brachial plexus injuries: Affecting the nerves that control movement, sensation, and reflexes in the arm, shoulder, hand, and fingers.
  • Hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE): Oxygen deprivation to the brain, leading to brain damage and potential cognitive and developmental delays.
  • Spinal cord injuries: Caused by trauma during delivery, resulting in permanent paralysis or loss of sensation in some or all parts of the body.

The long-term consequences of birth injuries can be devastating, impacting a child’s physical and cognitive abilities, development, and overall quality of life. Families may face a lifetime of medical expenses, therapy needs, and lost income due to caring for their child.

Holding Medical Professionals Accountable

If you suspect a medical error caused your child’s birth injury, Texas law allows you to seek compensation from the negligent healthcare provider(s). To prove a birth injury case, you need to establish the following:

  • Duty of Care: The medical professionals had a legal obligation to provide a reasonable standard of care during your pregnancy, labor, and delivery.
  • Breach of Duty: There was a deviation from this standard of care, meaning the doctor or hospital acted negligently.
  • Causation: The negligent actions directly caused your child’s birth injury.
  • Damages: Your child suffered harm due to the birth injury, such as medical expenses, future care needs, pain and suffering, and lost potential.
