Key West Birth Injury Attorneys

Leesfield & Partners, has been representing the victims of negligence for years. Our team of dedicated Key West birth injury lawyers represents persons who have suffered serious injury, economic loss, personal loss and future damages due to negligence of others.

A birth injury is any type of damage inflicted on the infant's body before, during or just after birth. Injuries range from minor bruises and skin irritations to severe damage to the brain that may result in the death of the infant. These brain injuries occur when the child is deprived of oxygen or is bleeding inside the brain from trauma during pregnancy, labor or delivery.

In some circumstances, oxygen deprivation can occur naturally during the labor and delivery process. For example, the umbilical cord can become compressed or twisted in the birthing process and may cut off the supply of oxygen to the brain. Other instances include when the baby is too large to pass through the birth canal easily, or the baby is breach or sideways in the womb. The medical team must be prepared for these situations and act immediately to save the child.

Some common types of birth injuries include:

* Skin irritations
* Temporary paralysis
* Fractured collar bone
* Fractured arm
* Cerebral Palsy
* Brain damage
* Erb's Palsy and Brachial Plexus Palsy

There are many "natural" circumstances wherein oxygen deprivation can occur during the labor and delivery process: the umbilical cord can become compressed or twisted in the birth process; the baby is too large to pass through the birth canal easily, or the baby is breach or sideways in the womb.

If you suspect your infant has suffered a birth injury as a result of medical negligence, it is imperative that you contact an experienced Key West personal injury law firm immediately after birth. The Key West birth injury lawyers of Leesfield & Partners are experienced in handling these serious injury and wrongful death cases.
