Experienced Birth Injury Counsel Is Just a Phone Call Away

If your son or daughter was injured at birth, or if your child has been diagnosed with a medical condition you believe may be linked to medical malpractice, do not wait to seek legal counsel. These are complex and challenging cases that require skilled handling by experienced attorneys. Your child may be facing a difficult road to recovery, and you may be facing various challenges as you try to ensure they receive the complete, ongoing care they need. A competent birth injury lawyer can identify malpractice, if it occurred, and can pursue financial compensation for your child’s lifelong care.

At Marciano & MacAvoy, P.C., we are passionate about helping children and families who have suffered as a result of obstetrical negligence. Our Philadelphia birth injury attorneys have over 35 years of collective legal experience and use this, along with our extensive resources, to build strong cases on behalf of injured children. We fight for the fair compensation that covers all of a child’s needs – for life.

Discuss your right to compensation and how our firm can help you by calling (215) 608-2183. Your consultation is free and private.

Why Birth Injuries Occur

Some birth injuries occur through no fault of a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare professional. Unforeseen complications may arise, and even after providing the best care, mother or baby may be left injured. In other situations, however, birth injuries can be traced back to a healthcare professional’s failure to provide standard, appropriate care.

The following are examples of acts/failures to act that can cause preventable birth injuries:

  • Delayed C-section
  • Failure to recommend a C-section in a high-risk delivery
  • Failure to diagnose preeclampsia
  • Mismanagement of shoulder dystocia
  • Misuse of forceps or vacuum extractor
  • C-section errors or mistakes
  • Medication errors
  • Anesthesia mistakes
  • Failure to diagnose macrosomia or cephalopelvic disproportion
  • Failure to diagnose/treat severe jaundice
  • Failure to respond to fetal distress

Cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, paralysis, brain damage, and even death can result from malpractice in obstetrics. These tragedies should be exposed for what they are, to help families seek justice and to improve the standard of care for others. Our Philadelphia birth injury lawyers are committed to this cause and are ready to see how we can help you.
