Kelowna Birth Injury Lawyer

Many birth injuries are unavoidable. Whether they result from genetic issues or factors outside of the control of medical professionals, they are an unfortunate reality. However, a significant percentage of them stem from negligence or recklessness. If your child suffered a birth injury due to a medical mistake during pregnancy, labour, or delivery, the Preszler team of Kelowna personal injury lawyers might be able to help.

As a birth injury law firm, we take pride in standing up for local families who have been devastated by this. We understand how trying this time can be, and our compassionate lawyers will take care to treat your family with respect.

Examples of severe birth injuries

The number of birth injuries and their magnitude can vary tremendously. These injuries can occur from pregnancy through labour, but are typically only discovered once the child is born. Common birth injuries include:

  • Cerebral Palsy – A brain injury that affects the child’s muscle control, vision, and hearing, cerebral palsy may result from bacterial infections, low birth weight, or brain trauma.
  • Spinal injuries – When extreme pressure is applied to the head or neck of a child, spinal injuries can occur.
  • Brachial plexus – A brachial plexus injury is that results the child’s shoulders are lodged behind the mother’s pelvic bone.
  • Broken bones – much like with spinal injuries, the pressure from childbirth can leave a child with significant injuries.
  • Kernicterus – This type of brain damage can occur when serious cases of jaundice go untreated.

When a birth injury lawyer performs an initial review of your case, they will carefully go through medical records to build a clear, accurate picture of what happened.
