Medical Malpractice Claims for Childbirth Injuries
A birth injury, or childbirth injury, may be described as any physical injury that a baby sustains during labor or the delivery process. The mother's health, preexisting complications, and the size and position of the baby in the womb may all influence whether a child will suffer birth injuries. At times, there will be nothing a doctor can do to prevent a birth injury, rather than attempt to limit the impact this has on both mother and baby. In some situations, however, a birth injury will be caused by negligence or medical malpractice.
If your child suffered a birth injury in a Sacramento hospital or medical facility, an attorney at our law firm may be able to help you take legal action against the facility or individual who was responsible. Involving a Sacramento medical malpractice lawyer as soon as possible is highly recommended, as this case may be highly technical and it may be difficult to immediately ascertain who should be held accountable or whether you have grounds for a birth injury lawsuit in the first place.
About the Types of Birth Injuries and Their Causes
Improperly responding to fetal distress, failing to diagnose a medical condition in either mother or baby, a delayed c-section and poor newborn care may all cause birth injuries. These may include: cerebral palsy, brachial plexus injury, paralysis, lacerations or bruising, brain injury and nerve damage. The extent of injury and how this will affect a child will vary depending on exactly what occurred, but in some cases a birth injury will lead to a child requiring a lifetime of medical care and support. In these matters and in any birth injury claim, it may be crucial to help the family recover financial compensation that will pay for medical care, continued treatment and assistive devices or therapy that can help a child lead a more normal life.

Medical malpractice claims are often the most complex civil cases to deal with. Although based in the common foundation that a doctor or other medical professional made a mistake or otherwise failed to provide proper care, proving medical malpractice and recovering financial damages goes far beyond this. It will be necessary to establish that the treatment you received was substandard in some way, and to do this your attorney will most likely have to involve medical professionals who can testify as expert witnesses to prove that the medical care provided was not up to current standards.
I just settled my first case with Mr. Shayani and he gave me the best settlement I could ever ask for. He has worked really hard on my case for 2 years to give me the best outcome, and he definitely came through. I don't think any other attorney could have done what he did to get me the best settlement. I HIGHLY recommend Payam Shayani for any personal injury case. The only downfall is that it took a long time for him to settle my case, but it was all worth it at the end.Debbie R. - Moreno Valley, CA
My Father hired Accident Lawyers to help him with a serious accident case for which He needed surgery. Mr. Shayani and his staff are very knowledgeable about big accident cases. His experience has been great with them. They are super aggressive and fight the insurance company to get maximum settlement. I highly recommend them if you had a big injury accident case. Also special thanks to sweet Talin Mahmoodi, their case manager. She's been always helpful and nice!!!Mel - Glendale, CA
