Birth Injuries of the Brain

Kennewick Medical Malpractice Lawyers

The most serious birth injuries are those that affect the brain. These injuries may lead to to long-term seizure disorders, or cause cerebral palsy or mental retardation. If your child was injured during the birthing process and suffered a brain injury, Reinig, Barber & Henry is here to help. Our attorneys have decades of combined experience handling personal injury cases exclusively. They can help recover fair compensation for your losses.

Causes of Birth Brain Injuries

Birth brain injuries may result from oxygen deprivation, a compressed skull or other complications during the birthing process. If your child's brain damage is the direct result of physician or nurse negligence, you have the right to file a claim.

Examples of medical malpractice during the birthing process include:

  • Improper use of forceps, vacuums or other delivery aides
  • Failure to recognize and respond to signs of fetal stress
  • Failure to order an emergency c-section when appropriate
  • Failure to recognize labor and delivery complications that can lead to brain injuries

At Reinig, Barber & Henry, we know how to put together and present a compelling medical malpractice case in your favor. Using our knowledge of how insurance companies determine compensation, we will gather the evidence necessary to obtain full financial damages. We also have access to medical professionals who will review your situation and provide honest, expert testimony to strengthen your case.
