Knowledgeable Counsel from a Philadelphia Birth Injury Attorney
Lawyer serving families throughout Pennsylvania
Mitchell L. Paul provides sound representation to families throughout Pennsylvania affected by birth injuries. Having practiced personal injury law for years, I have a thorough understanding of the short- and long-term effects of birth injuries. I work with trusted professionals to help determine the full extent of your child’s injury and the care that will be needed in the future. I then build sound legal arguments designed to maximize your financial recovery.
Common causes of birth injuries
Birth injuries can happen before, during or shortly after a child is born. They are more likely to occur when certain factors come into play, such as:
- A failure to identify, monitor or act on fetal distress
- A failure to plan for an emergency C-section
- The use of excessive force during a delivery
- The misuse of instruments during a delivery
- Lack of blood or oxygen to the brain
- Exposure to bacteria
- Respiratory distress
- Placenta previa
When the negligence of a medical professional leads to a birth injury, I help you get the compensation you deserve.
Common types of birth injuries
Some of the most common types of birth injuries are:
- Cerebral palsy
- Erb’s palsy
- Brachial plexus injuries
- Bone fractures
- Shoulder dystocia
- Brain damage
- Facial paralysis
- Spinal cord injuries
- Nerve injuries
- Oxygen deprivation
- Intracranial hemorrhages
- Caput Succedaneum
- Horner’s syndrome
No matter the birth injury, I fight for your right to compensation.
Seeking prompt treatment
While some birth injuries heal naturally over time, it is critical you monitor your child’s health to ensure they receive the medical attention they need. Surgeries to repair nerve damage are more effective when a baby is still an infant, and early physical therapy helps weakened muscles develop before unnecessary strain is placed on healthier limbs. I work with you and trusted doctors to diagnose your child’s condition and get appropriate care.
