You spend nine anxious months doing everything you can to ensure that your baby or babies have a cozy nursery, the best diapers, and a home filled with love.

At Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Law, we specialize in medical malpractice-related birth injuries, working compassionately side-by-side with the parents to get you the justice that you and your family so rightly deserve. 


What Are Some Examples of Birth Injuries?

Obstetric malpractice can come in many forms, and it’s important to understand that no two birth injury cases are alike. Having an experienced team at your side, fighting for you and your family, is a must. At Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Law, we’ve represented birth injury cases that include:

  • Failure to Diagnose: There are a variety of things that need to be monitored with both mom and baby to ensure a healthy birth. When these dangers to the mother, such as pre-eclampsia and gestational diabetes, are ignored or improperly treated, serious harm can be done to the baby.
  • Neonatal Injuries: Babies can be born with issues, including jaundice, respiratory complications, spinal cord and skeletal injuries, and more, and without proper care, they can lead to a lifetime of disability.
  • Failure to Perform a C-Section: Doctors and nurses must monitor the mother for any signs of fetal distress so that a life-saving C-section can be performed. When this fails to happen, brain damage and even death can be the result.
  • Birth by Force or Improper Birthing Techniques: From getting stuck in the birth canal to a breech, the baby must be manipulated to ensure a safe birth. When the wrong techniques are used during birth, including forceps, suction, and more, any number of injuries, including brain, skeletal, and nerve injuries, can occur.
  • Nerve and Brain Damage: Cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, and other cognitive and physical disabilities can be caused by improper birthing techniques and improper fetal monitoring. These lifelong conditions require special care and planning, and the medical expenses add up.

These life-changing injuries come with both a financial and emotional price that require the best team of birth injury lawyers in the country at your side. Trust the attorneys at Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Law to guide you through every step of the process to ensure you’re compensated for your tragedy.
