Philadelphia Infant Brain Damage Lawyer

All parents hope to bring happy, healthy children into this world, but the tragic truth is that roughly seven out one thousand births involve injury to the child. One of the most devastating injuries a newborn can suffer is brain damage, which is most often caused by hypoxia. It is understandable, and expected, that parents of injured newborns want answers. All too often, they are told by the hospital that nothing could have been done to prevent the injury from happening, and that no one was at fault. In order to get the full truth, it is necessary to go outside the hospital for answers. Only an experienced Philadelphia infant brain damage attorney will be able to determine whether a doctor, nurse, or other caregiver was negligent in their care. If your child suffered a brain injury during childbirth, our Philadelphia infant brain damage lawyers at The Villari Firm, PLLC will assist you in filing a medical malpractice claim with the appropriate party.

How Did the Brain Damage Incident Happen?

The most common cause of brain damage during delivery is a lack of oxygen to the brain, which is why doctors need to constantly be monitoring the baby’s heartbeat and other biological metrics for signs of fetal distress. Even a relatively short period of time without sufficient oxygen can result in irreparable brain damage. Other potential causes of brain damage during childbirth include viral infections, head trauma going through the birthing canal, and the excessive use of forceps.
