Helping Victims of Childbirth Injuries in Hawaii
When a baby is born, it is a moment of great joy and celebration. Unfortunately, babies can be born with birth defects and other injuries that can cause lifelong harm. In some cases, these injuries can be traced to medical malpractice or negligence during childbirth. If your newborn was injured during birth, you may be eligible to file a claim against the responsible parties.
At the Law Office of Jon S. Jacobs, LLLC, our Honolulu birth injuries lawyer helps families recover compensation for the harm done to their children. We know how to investigate cases and build strong claims, which is why we have successfully represented many families in Hawaii.
What Are the Most Common Causes of Birth Injuries?
During a normal delivery, a newborn can suffer a number of injuries, including:
- Cuts and scrapes from the delivery process
- Bruises from being pulled or squeezed
- Brachial plexus injuries, which damage the nerves that control the arm
- Shoulder dystocia, which occurs when the baby's shoulder gets stuck during delivery
If your newborn suffered any of these injuries during the delivery process, you may be eligible to file a claim against the hospital or medical professionals who oversaw your child's birth.
