Although medical advances have made considerable progress in the last few decades alone, birth injuries still do occur. In some cases, a prolonged delivery or trauma during the birth process can result in paralysis.

If your child has been injured during the birth process, it is important to remember that doctors and medical professionals are legally obligated to uphold a reasonable standard of care. If they fail to do so and your child suffers a serious injury as a result, you could be able to pursue compensation through a medical malpractice claim in Miami or your community. To learn more, contact a personal injury attorney in Miami or your community. The Flaxman Law Group legal team, for example, has been part of the South Florida community for more than 25 years. If you think you may have a case, you can always contact the law firm for a free consultation.

Types of Paralysis Sustained During Births
  • Facial paralysis. This is one of the most common types of paralysis that infants sustain, with the lip and mouth area being the most likely to be affected. Also known as facial nerve palsy, this type of paralysis may be caused by medical professionals applying too much pressure to the facial area of the infant during birth.
  • Arm and hand paralysis. Often, this is caused by nerve damage during the birth process. It can cause atrophied limbs and severe pain.
Did Medical Negligence Play a Role in Your Child’s Injury?

In some cases, paralysis sustained during birth is not avoidable. In some cases, however, it is caused by negligence. In these cases, parents can launch a medical malpractice lawsuit in Miami or their community in order to seek compensation for their child’s injuries. Paralysis caused by birth injuries in Miami and other Florida communities often requires physical therapy, surgery, and other forms of expensive treatment. In some cases, a child’s mobility is permanently affected by the injury. Seeking compensation can help parents get the financial resources needed to help get their child the best treatment available.
