When A Mother Or Child Suffers A Birth Injury

Although they often do an excellent job of caring for their patients, licensed health care professionals involved in the childbirth process can and do make mistakes.

The Manchin Injury Law Group in Fairmont helps families in North Central West Virginia who have been harmed by birth injuries and medical negligence of all types. Our practice includes cases that involve:

  • Failure to perform a C-section
  • Failure to monitor/diagnose fetal distress
  • Hypoxic/anoxic birth injuries
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Erb's palsy (shoulder dystocia)
  • Brachial plexus injuries
  • Injuries to the mother
  • Wrongful death

If your family has recently experienced a devastating and unexpected birth-related tragedy, put our experience to work for you. For a free consultation — call us at 304-816-4097.

Building A Strong Birth Injury Case

Although no amount of compensation can ever "right" this kind of wrong, our lawyers will do whatever they can to get wages for medical devices, needed surgeries, home nursing care and other specialized services.

In practical terms, this means we regularly consult with a variety of medical experts, with economists, with accountants, with actuaries and with other specialists to arrive at a reasonable and accurate estimate of future care and expenses. If, after that, the case cannot be settled fairly — we will not hesitate to pursue justice aggressively and seek fair compensation through the courts.
