Explore compensation options for birth injuries

No woman goes into labor thinking that she wants to be held down during the birthing process or that she wants the medical staff to hold her baby in the birth canal instead of allowing the baby to be born. That happened to one woman at a hospital that claimed to support natural births and the mother's wishes. That woman suffered a birth injury known as pudendal neuralgia. She opted to seek compensation for that injury and other facets of her birth experience and was ultimately awarded $16 million.

Her case brings up the important point of what is appropriate during labor. The birth team must ensure that they act in a manner that puts the woman's safety and the baby's safety at the top of the priority list. In this case, the woman suffered an injury because the nurses physically held the baby in while they waited on the doctor to arrive. As many people probably know, forcing a baby who is coming through the birth canal to remain in the mother can harm the baby and the mother.

We understand that you might be devastated by the birth you had to endure if you were injured or your baby was injured. We know that having to discuss the effects of a birth injury might be difficult, especially when the effects are intimate in nature. We offer you compassionate support when we represent you in a birth injury case.

You mustn't mistake our compassion for you and our sympathy for your situation as meaning that we won't be firm with your case. We want to hold the medical professionals who are responsible for your case accountable. We will fight for you to get the compensation that you deserve.
